Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a drysuit for scuba diving?
Yes, you do. Scuba diving drysuits are designed to keep the wearer dry, warm and comfortable when in the water by keeping water out. A drysuit should be worn in environments where the water is below 14°C or where harsh conditions are present.
What are pros and cons of drysuits for scuba diving?
- Keeps users dry
- Feels very warm, even when in cold water
- Made of ultra-stretch neoprene, making them comfortable to wear
- Allows users to dive for longer periods of time
- More expensive than wetsuits
- Harder to put on
- Tears more easily
- Can feel quite heavy, especially when wet, and needs a lot of weight to provide neutral buoyancy
What is a drysuit, and what’s the difference between a wet suit vs. a dry suit?
A diving drysuit is a waterproof diving suit that works by sealing a layer of air between the diver and the water. The difference between scuba diving drysuits and wetsuits is that a wetsuit will trap water between the wetsuit and the wearer’s skin, whereas a diving drysuit is looser fitting and uses air instead of water to minimise heat loss and keep the wearer warmer.
Is it difficult to dive with a dry suit?
No, it’s not difficult at all to go diving while wearing a diving drysuit, although it may take some time to get used to wearing a drysuit for diving activities.
What do I wear under a dry suit?
When wearing a drysuit for diving, scuba divers should also be wearing clothes that are made from polypropylene, wool or fleece, as these materials provide good insulation even when wet.
