Drysuit Repairs

I don't think there is a worse feeling than that seeping cold you get from a leak in your drysuit. We carry out all manner of repairs on drysuits, getting you back in the warmth. If you are unsure where your suit is leaking, we can carry out a pressure test to diagnose leak patches.

If you are hanging up your drysuit after the season here are a few pointers to keep it in the best possible shape.

  • Make sure your suit is fully dried out before putting away. Mould and mildew are not nice things to discover come spring.

  • Check over all seams (included those inside) for glue de-lamination. Getting a patch done early will prevent a more costly job later on!

  • Although this applies more to latex than neoprene - always store out of direct sunlight (to avoid UV damage) and at 23°C. Too hot and latex will soften, too cold and it will become brittle.

  • Avoid putting pressure on the zip. We suggest folding your suit with the zip closed - boots and legs rolled up to the chest and arms folded across. This keeps the zip in its natural orientation and avoids straining the teeth.
