This Northern Diver dry suit was sent in for new seals. A recent purchase for a novice diver.
We inspected the seals and over cuffs.
Both the cuffs and neck were in poor condition which was not a major problem as they could all be put back into working order.
However the zip was clearly beyond use and the internal seam taping was crumbling away.
Most of the seams at the top of the suit were completely gone.
We discussed the matter with the client and suggested that obtaining a refund from the point of purchase would be the best option. We could have restored this suit but the cost would have been too much compared with the value and quality of the suit. We helped him with supporting information and he got his money back.

This is an Avon Dry Suit that we have just had in for refurbishment. The original seals had rotted away and in some places melted into the surface of the suit. We used specialised cleaners and patience to remove the old seals and sort the damaged areas.
It’s that time of year again. The early season training is already happening for some and anything broken from last season needs to be fixed or altered ready to go. We have just had this Rooster Sailing Long-john in for a ‘Convenience-zip’.
The zip is fitted externally using the same ‘No Stich Technology’ technique employed by Bare Drysuits. This combined with the internal zip flap minimises water ingression.
Need some thing like this, then give us a call. Tel: 0161 304 8471
Hi. We have just returned from Skiing in Tignes. I thought this was an interesting diversion. The weather was going sideways and it was a difficult skiing day so we thought we might try Diving under the ice at the lake in Tignes. The people running the operation are very professional and the instruction was top class. Safety lines are in place and the equipment was top notch. As diving instructors ourselves we didn’t think it would be particularly challenging and it wasn’t. You don’t have to be a qualified diver or even have any diving experience. The instructor will keep hold of you , operate all of your equipment and carry you through the dive. Just relax and enjoy the view. I was even consulted on Drysuit repairs whilst I was there.
