Our drysuits use high quality latex rubber neck seals, made in England, to seal with your neck and keep the water from getting inside the suit.
The our neck helps to protect the rubber seal from abrasion, contaminents and sunlight which all help to extend the life of the seal.
The neck seals are made in a conical shape which allows them to be trimmed if they are initially too tight. Most people however find the neck seals are the correct size without any adjustment. Please get in contact if you need help or adcice on how to do this.

Our wrist seals are also made from high qlaity latex rubber and are also covered by a velcro outer wrist to help protect them from abraision etc.
Latex Wrist Seal
The velcro adjustment helps to tightent up the wrist around the end of a glove and keeps the material nice and tidy around the hand.

This drysuit has retro reflective tape around the arms. The tape , which is made by 3M , reflects light back to where it originates so if you are searching for someone by torchlight you get a really good reflection from someone who is waving their arms at sea.

The Tornado has reinforced cordura knees to help resist abrasion when kneeling down. The crodura area covers and extended knee zone and protects the inner breathable layer from damage.
These panels have drain holes in them to allow any water that enters between the panels to drain out.

The latex drysuit socks used to cover your feet are totally waterproof and keep your feet totally dry. You shoudl wear some normal socks inside for comfort and on colder days a good pair of walking or skiing socks help keep your feet nice and toasty.
The socks should be covered by wetsuit boots for walking around in and performing your sport. Most people find they need to wear boots one size larger than normal to accomodate the socks comfortably.

The waist is elasticated to allow the wearer to bend over and move around whilst not having too much extra material flapping around.

|Unlike a rear entry drysuit the Tornado's front zip allows you to zip yourself up if no one else is around to help.|
|Please note that although the drysuit looks pinkish in the video this is just a consequence of reducing the video quality so it plays quickly on the website. Its not really that colour it is Red. Also please note that smaller drysuit sizes now feature the YKK dryzip shown in the pictures.|
