Common Drysuit Myths

  • Drysuits keep you warm!
  • You will have an uncontrolled, feet first ascent to the surface!
  • Drysuits are cumbersome and difficult to don and remove!
  • Foam neoprene neck and wrist seals are much better!
  • Drysuits are too expensive!
  • Drysuits are for professionals and advanced divers only!
  • If the suit floods it will drag you to the bottom!
  • There is no such thing as a drysuit. The best you can hope for is “semi-dry”!
  • Drysuits cause a lot more drag and require a lot more weight!
  • Drysuits are only for extremely cold water!
  • Drysuit diving is too technical for the recreational diver!
