Diving Suits: Wetsuits and Dry Suits

There are two types of diving suits. Scuba diving suits and dry suits. The more common of the two are the scuba wetsuits because they are for warmer water temperatures. Dry suits, by comparison, are used for dive trips in cold weather climates like Alaska or anywhere else where you would need to be completely insulated. Military special operation groups use dry suits like our Typhoon Drysuit for the extreme weather conditions they encounter. Most typical divers only have a need for a wetsuit. Unless you are planning a dive up north in colder climates, we recommend browsing our wetsuit section to find the one that's best for you.

Different styles of scuba diving suits

So, you have figured that you indeed are looking for a wetsuit and not a dry suit. What next? A decision on what style best fits your needs. If you are diving in tropical weather, shorties are a good way to go. These are scuba wetsuits that are cut off above the knee and elbow. The style is great for those really hot climates in the tropics. For more coverage, you can go for the traditional scuba diving wetsuits with full length leg and arm coverage like the Hyperstretch Henderson Suit. Not only does the full suit keep you warm, it also can protect against stings from jellyfish, abrasions or other minor possible intrusions. Other items you might want to consider are Lycra tops and shorts. These go underneath your dive suit to avoid rashes and make putting on the suit a little bit easier. Don't forget to check out our accessories including fins, masks, watches, underwater cameras, and computers. See scuba equipment collections from Sea Elite and Henderson for more information on these.  More articles about Purchasing scuba equipment online.
 

 

Types of Diving Suits And Accessories

In addition to considering various styles of diving wet suits, you also need to consider that various materials are better suited for certain diving conditions. This guide to diving wet suits will help you decipher between the various materials available to you.

Spandex – Spandex is light and compact. It’s also useful as an under layer for thicker diving suits. You get the benefit of 45 percent more warmth than diving with bare skin.

Foam Neoprene – Foam neoprene can come in 1/8”, 3/16” and 1/4” thicknesses. This is a buoyant material, but the drying time is longer. You can obtain anywhere from 20 percent to 100 percent more warmth than diving with bare skin.

Accessories – Accessories like hoods, vests, boots and gloves let you layer for additional warmth and flexibility. You can achieve from 16 percent to 66 percent more warmth just by adding accessories.
