Rescue Options Features Details

The 3000 Series Dry Suit has a track record extending back to the late nineties.  Robust tri-laminate fabrics coupled with  triple and double stitching with double taped seams to provide a construction which typically lasts past the ten year point.  There are examples of this suit still in use at twenty years old.

Will not leak until you wear holes through it.  Holes are ALWAYS repairable at any age.

Features included in base price:

– Latex neck, wrists and socks.

– Adjustable belt.

– Made to measure or standard sizes.

DAMX 4000  Series Rescue/Workwear Dry Suit

Designed for the most aggressive environments – often supplied with integral glued in boots for situations where reinforced safety wellies are required – steel toe cap and reinforced mid-sole.  Tough cordura faced textiles make this suit as robust as they come. 

It is less widely chosen than the DAMX 3000 Series suit because for most applications the 3000 series offers better flexibility/comfort and freedom of movement whilst still being very tough and long lasting.

Please contact us for full details.  The DAMX 4000 Series suit has an options list designed to cater for the full range of professional rescue / workwear applications.

DAMX 4030 Series Rescue Dry Suit

A hybrid dry suit, with the 4000 Series trouser section and the more flexible 3000 Series upper section.  This dry suit is an excellent solution for situations where the suit must have integral glued in safety wellies, but where the upper section would benefit from a softer fabric or a high-vis colour which is not available in the toughest 4000 Series range.

Please contact us for advice regarding the best dry suit for your application.

Total protection for the latex wrist seals – prevents accidental damage, approximately doubles the life of the latex wrist seals and gives a much improved watertight seal.  Neoprene and velcro adjustable design.  ( We do offer a cone type, non-adjustable design by special request, but this is not our preferred version )

A protective neoprene cone which protects the latex neck seal and makes the suit warmer by reducing wind chill.  Designed to avoid the abrasion and discomfort that can be experienced with some of the velcro adjustable designs.

Please note that this feature is not designed to be a tight fit – it will not provide any additional level of watertight seal beyond acting as a deflector.

We do offer a twin seal neck design which has a made-to-measure neoprene neck seal over the latex neck seal to give the highest level of watertight seal, but for most paddlers this will be over-kill and will certainly be less comfortable.  It is particularly unsuitable for people who have a short or very slender neck.  We do require that you visit us to approve the fit of this design.

 

A short dry suit zip allowing you to have a pee without the hassle of getting out of your dry suit. Fitted horizontally across the crotch area to minimise the flexing of the zip and fabric by aligning it with the natural folds of the suit when you are seated.  The zip is in a minimally stressed location and the failure rate is almost zero even in suits over ten years old.  The zip is concealed beneath a protective fabric cover. 

It is possible for women to use a comfort zip in conjunction with a “Shewee” ( funnel type thing! )  The zip is sited as low as possible in the dry suit for women.  It must be said that some women do not get along at all well with the comfort zip!!!  The Drop Seat design is the other option for women.

The 3000 Series dry suits have a belt fitted as standard.  Adjustable braces with quick release buckles and a short elasticated section for strain relief can be fitted as an optional extra +£15.   Braces are unnecessary for the majority of body shapes in a made-to-measure suit – the belt will do the same job as braces but without the hassle of getting them crossed over, twisted or wrapped around your leg etc.  Braces are however necessary for certain body shapes and if the suits are to be worn by a variety of users, the internal braces will enable the dry suit to be worn by a wider range of body shapes/sizes.  Braces can be fitted at a later date if you change your mind.

The 4000 Series dry suit has adjustable braces with quick release buckles fitted as standard.  A belt would not be particularly effective due to the weight and stiffness of the fabric.    

If any of your body measurements fall within the “extra large” definition, a 10% surcharge is applied to the base price of the suit. ( the +10% does not apply to the cost of any optional extras – over-cuffs, over-necks, comfort zips etc ) 

Extra Large is defined as being in excess of any of the following:  6’4″   18 Stone    49″ chest, stomach or hips/bottom.
