    Still doing some research concerning my next drysuit (which will mostly probably be an E. lite). I'm now looking for the underwear.

    For comparaison purposes, I'm currently using a Weezle extrem + when diving in winter (32 F and ice diving) or scootering in 50F water. In summer, I use a combinaison of polar fleece ski underwear. and the water temperature is generally around 70F.

    That being said, what is the difference between the EXTREME BZ400 and the EXTREME BZ400 X ?

    The COMFORT BZ 200is for what range of temperature?

    On the description for girl suit, it is mentionnes "female zipper". In what are they special? Is there a special something for the she-p/ p-valve?

    Hi,
    I know that you are looking for answers from Santi, but while you are waiting, you might check out their website. There is a table with temperature ranges for their undersuits here SantiDiving - drysuits & undersuits for divers

    And on their page with videos SantiDiving - drysuits & undersuits for divers there are some specifically about the women's products. The one called "Women's Cut" goes into a description and reasons for the longer zipper.


    I bought their BZ200, and was toasty warm in 10 degree water.

    I finally got BZ400 this winter and it is superwarm. 1h in 36 water and I was not feeling any cold.

    Hi Xaryo,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Comparatively speaking, you will find the BZ400 and BZ400X warmer than the Weezle Extreme.

    The BZ400X is cut a little different than the BX400 giving the diver a little better range of motion. The BZ400X has 2 p-valve openings, a heater cable opening so if your wearing a heated vest underneath it you can pass the cable through it. Its also available in all black or black and red.

    The Ladies Zipper is a 3 way zipper that extends underneath the crotch. Yes, with this zipper design a she-pee can be routed easily.

    The BZ200 is good for 45- 60 degrees although I wear mine in 72 degree water.

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
