    Hey mate, what's your thoughts on the Trigon now?
    I've just ordered a 4E stealth with one in it but I'm a bit worried about the complaints about leaking, I was tossing up between that and the LM. I went with it because of the lower profile but I've since found out there's no open or closed, not sure if I like that idea either.

    Cheers

    The trigon works perfectly, just never over pressurize it while flushing, if you do it will disrupt the equalizer mushroom valve and allows it to trickle inside rather than outside :( if that happens you have to open it up wipe it all down to make sure nothing else is in there and make sure all valves are sitting correctly, basically a 2 minute operation.

    @Mike1967 I have the Trigon on both of my drysuits. I have not had any issue with either one, so far. One of them is over 2 years old now and the other is almost 1 year. According to my log, that is 66 dives total, between the 2 suits. Maybe I just haven't used them enough yet to have a problem?
