Well you might have the inside information Drew. Yeah its interesting that they have the proven science and technology for the wetsuits give that the field tests where started in January this year on baited up Tiger sharks. The WA uni's still has 18 months to go before finalizing the research. They still havnt stated what field tests they used to see if their Cryptic dive suits actual "Hide" you from the sharks..?
I had a look of SAMS FAQ on their website and they stated the following regarding the Cryptic dive suit:
Which style should I use for diving?
Short answer: At depth the camo patterns enable the wearer to be hidden.
Once at depth the Cryptic patterns will be more effective by hiding the wearer from sharks against the background of colours in a specific band of the reflective spectrum.
Then goes on:
To be fully protected with camo what about my hands, feet, face, BCD, tanks etc. Do I need to cover them?
Short answer: At this stage maximum protection is afforded by maximum coverage.
At this stage maximum protection is afforded by maximum coverage. Further testing is being undertaken to be applied to other equipment besides wetsuits
So they havnt actually tested the Cryptic dive suit when you wearing a tank, BCD, fins, mask..........?
When you come to think of it how is Cryptic suit going to work when its cover by a BCD and with tank....?
