Ive had several drysuits over the years. My favorite is my custom USIA suit. Every option you can imagine, very high quality, excellent service, 1/3 less than a custom DUI. I have both, and dive with my USIA. Had nothing but problems with the DUI zip seals and have heard much of the same.

Freediving photographer here diving in temperate waters with high difference in the summer /20-26C/ and winter /6-10C/

This requires me to use 3, 5 and 7 mm wetsuits.

 

3mm - the thin wetsuits tear quite easily during freediving, so I don't use expensive or glide suits. Currently I use APNEA Legend spearfishing suit wich is quite cheap and I can buy a new one each season.

5mm - Esclapez Diving Olive - super stretch nylon covered.

7mm - Esclapez Diving Camo - however I may switch back to APNEA since the Esclapez is quite hard. It uses sandwich technology that increases durability but reduces comfort. I prefer stretchy neoprene for easier hyperventilation.

 

Cheers,

 

Ivan
