HD Latex Wrist Seals with Neo Covers
Available with drysuit purchase only
Adding neoprene covers over Heavy Duty latex wrist seals gives more protection from abrasion damage and UV degradation due to sun light. When combined with a pair of neoprene gloves (which are worn under the cover) it much warmer around the wrist area. These can making the fitting of rings for dryglove systems difficult (they do work well with “normal” drygloves with their own seals).
If you would like this option but would prefer the seals to be cone shaped instead of bottle shaped, add this item to cart and then select “Dry Suit Option – Swap from Bottle to Cone Wrist seals”
This is an option for an Ultra drysuit. Should only be ordered if a Ultra (compressed neoprene) type drysuit is also ordered.
Latex seals are available in two different shapes (as well as standard and heavy duty thickness).Bottle seals have a 40mm parallel section at the end which sit comfortably on the wrist. We have fitted bottle wrists as the nom for many years and when correctly sized to the wearer, they offer a good balance between comfort, wrist sealing and ease of dressing. There are some people who prefer the cone type as they feel that the tapered end “bites” more firmly into the skin of the wrist giving a better seal this high fitting up the wrist also can reduce any interference from under suit sleeve ends. The smaller sealing area of cone seals can avoid the channels caused by wrist tendons that can cause leaks with some divers. Cone wrist have ring trimming guides to further adjust the fit. The shoulder section of bottles seals makes the fitting of any dryglove ring system much easier.
If you are unsure which to go for the safe bet is go with the bottle type.
