Havent been on in a while, been a very busy and hectic summer. With excessive use comes excessive wear, those drysuit seals are going to need to be replaced for next summer. I just ripped my neck seal, and ended up looking for replacements. I found these guys, Gummifabrikken. They are out of Florida and my understanding is that their main demand is the offshore oil indeustry. Anyway, I am super pleased with their products, and of course, I am happy to keep my money in the states. Check out the gloves and other accessories.

As far as glue is concerned, the last few seal replacements i have done, I have used the Dry adhesive tape from Dive Right In Scuba. Its clean, doesnt get you high, and is (IMO) stronger than wet glues. Anyway, just some thoughts for those of you who use their drysuits like me... A LOT!!! DRIS* Carries also the G-Dive seals as well as a plethera of other drysuit accessories. I use them regularly for my repair needs.

I guess I need to raise the price on our latex wrist seals since our are less than theirs. I will put them on our website soon.

Steve, your store is very very hard to beat! Really need that distribution center in the lower 50!

I used to buy the bare latex seals but, I like the extra thickness of the heavy duty seals.
