Our View

We think this is an absolutely brilliant drysuit. Fantastic performance, lightweight and versatile. You only need a light layer of clothing under this suit – swim shorts and a t shirt will do the job. It’s not a cheap product but consider it an investment for the serious scuba diver.

It’s available in a host of different sizes, but if you’re considering investing in this, make sure you have your measurements. For the spend, you’ll want to make sure you get the right fit!

  1. Hi all,
    I am in the market for a new drysuit and have my eye on the Waterproof D1 Hybrid. I have researched as best I can but am getting very mixed reviews. Has anyone dived with one of these? I would love to hear how you find it.
    I currently dive with a Typhoon neoprene suit so I am used to having to carry a little extra weight to sink it.
    Thanks for your help.
