    Your title says made in USA and then you say its manufactured in Poland. At those prices my DUI (actually made in USA) looks more affordable.

    Hi skankpile,

    Thank you for your reply. The title says "New Drysuit Manufacturer in the USA".

    We are very excited to bring this high quality drysuit and undergarments to the USA!

    DUI makes a nice suit at different price points. When you compare the two side by side, you will see that the craftsmanship of a SANTI is far superior.

    Enjoy your DUI! Dive Safe.

    I've read plenty of reviews on the different models of Santi drysuits, they have all been very good.

    It does seem that the prices have went up quite a bit. They used to come with an undergarment and at a lower price.

    It's nice to see a new US distributor, as Santi is still on my list of drysuits I'm considering. The higher prices are making me give more though to the decision.

    I'm still a month or two out from buying unless a great deal appears.

    Hi Mitch,

    No doubt the prices have gone up a bit. Importing is always more expensive then having id made here in the USA.

    What's even more interesting is the the amount of people that are switching over to SANTI Drysuits because they are dissatisfied with the fit and quality of their current dry suit.

    If you get a chance, take one for a dive and you will see the difference. There are 4 things that really stand out from a construction stand point:

    1)Look at the quality of the seems and how they are put together.
    2)The location of the exhaust valve allows for easy venting
    3)Flexsole Boots, extreamly low profile, reinforced in the toe and heal
    4)11" telescoping torso allows for easier donning and doffing

    The list goes on and on:)

    Thanks for your feedback!

    Cheers,

    Team OceanEdge Outfitters

    Thank you,

    I'm left with no choice but to buy before I try so I have to place a lot of importance on user reviews and get the purchase right the first time.
    There's no doubt that the Santi reputation is well deserved, I just have to justify the increased cost compared to the competition before deciding.

    Thanks again,
    It's good that there's now a US distributor.
