We have had a lot of questions about our upcoming DrySuit Certification and Drysuit Rental program.
We have ordered the Bare Trilam Tech Dry Drysuits. Because these do not have the ring seals for the neck and wrists they are a special custom build by Bare for us. It can take up to 6 weeks for the Drysuits to be made and shipped. Once they are in store we will advertise them as being available for rent to those that are verifiably Drysuit Certified.
To rent one fo the Drysuits there are conditions and stipulations apart from being either Drysuit Certified or have registered for a Drysuit Diver course with us. With each rental the Drysuits will have a set of uncut seals installed. As everyone's physiology is different the seals quite often need to be trimmed. Especially the neck seal so it is not too tight. A subject that is taught in the class.
Because of the "tailoring" or cutting of the seals specifically tailored to you and not the next diver. Therefore there is a charge for the seals that are tailored. And then those seals are yours to keep and use the next time you rent a Drysuit.
In addition because of the nature of the Drysuit there is a refundable cleaning deposit taken at the time of rental. If the Drysuit is returned soiled the deposit will be forfeited due to the time and products needed to clean the Drysuit.
