How to Put on a Drysuit

A new drysuit is a big investment and properly putting it on can help preserve it's life.  Just follow these simple procedures and your drysuit should live a long healthy life!


A few key things to keep in mind when using and preserving your investment.  We started with the booties.  Remember to always sit when putting the feet on.  Before you actually step into the suit make sure you have the suspenders in the right place. 

Don’t walk around in the suit until you have put boots on over the latex booties.  When putting your hands and neck through the seals, push evenly and remove any sharp jewelry.  Remember to fully engage the zipper.  

Try to rinse your suit off after each use in any salt or brackish water.  When you’re done for the day, absolutely don’t ball it up and put it in a bag.  Hang it out and store it hanging up.  Also, it’s a good idea to use products like seal saver and zipper care which we have here.
