Dry suits are made from thin materials, and have little thermal insulation. They are commonly made of vulcanized rubber, or laminated layers of nylon and butyl rubber.

I have a new Joe Abboud suit. Unfortunately the right sleeve got a very tiny hole caused by moss. Any suggestion on how topic it. I never wore the suit. It is new.


Hi Abdeighani:
Your question has appeared in the Cars & Trucks section.
As for your problem, I would suggest that you take the clothing to a local Dry Cleaning company and explain the problen to them.
It is quite probable that they will have a competent local seamster who will be able to perform the repairs for you.
Best of luck.

What is the type of rubber that is used on the wrists and neck part of a dry suit?


(as seen on wikipedia)

Neoprene is a type of synthetic rubber, often also used in neck and ankle seals in dry suits. Neoprene can be specially prepared to contain millions of tiny enclosed air bubbles, forming a buoyant and thermally-insulating material.

What should I wear under my dry suit?


Dry suits are not meant to keep a diver warm; they are designed to keep the clothing from getting wet. It may be even possible that a diver may get wet from perspiration or a leak in the suit. The types of materials to wear under the dry suit include pile fleece, polypropylene or wool as these types of materials will keep you insulated even when wet - avoid wearing cotton.

What is a dry suit and how is it different to a wet suit.


A dry suit is loose fitting apart from a sealed neck, wrists and ankles to stop the water getting in. Dry suits do not provide insulation and the clothes worn under the dry suit keep the people warm they are used more for deep sea diving. Wet suits no not keep a person dry but they are insulated to keep the person warm during water sports or scuba diving.

hello Dear
Firstly stop usind this product either ut is not for your hair type or it is not suiting you.
For dry and frizzy hairs before washing use OLIVE OIL, massage on your hairs and scalp for 15 mins and then let it on your head for 2 hrs. After this wash your hairs with DOVE DAILY HAIR THERAPY ( for normal hairs). it is really a mild shampoo and it won't have and adverse effect. IT is highly recommanded.

Scuba suit need?


"Wet suits and dry suits are very important when it comes to scuba diving. Your normal body temperature hovers around 98.6F (37C). If you are scuba diving in water that is cooler than your body temperature your temperature will drop. In all water, even the warmest, tropical waters, you will need thermal protection, like a wet suit, dry suit or dive skin, to keep warm and to keep safe while scuba diving. The cold affects our ability to think and our physical response time slows, which can lead to an accident. Warm tropical water will begin to feel cold after prolonged scuba diving, so it is always a good idea to wear light insulation at a minimum. When choosing thermal protection, like a wet suit or dry suit, you need to consider the following factors: Water temperature Your activity level during a dive Your body size You should always wear more insulation in colder water and lighter insulation in warmer water. Your level of activity can be a good indicator of how much insulation you should wear during a scuba dive. The more active you are during a dive the more heat your body generates and the warmer you remain throughout your dive. Larger scuba divers may need less insulation than smaller scuba divers and small, muscular scuba divers may need less insulation than larger scuba divers. It is important for you to try different amounts of insulation in differing water temperatures to determine what you need. Some scuba divers need more insulation than others, regardless of activity or size. Some scuba divers can dive in tropical water wearing only a lycra body suit, commonly known as a dive skin, while others need a 2mm wet suit. Some scuba divers can dive in cold water wearing only a 6mm wet suit, while others need the protection of a dry suit. If you are scuba diving in water below 55F (12.7C), a dry suit is the warmest type of thermal insulation available. Dive skins, wet suits and dry suits also protect your skin from cuts, scrapes, abrasions and stings which can occur while you are scuba diving. A simple brush against specific forms of coral and fish can cause painful irritations and burns on bare skin, but may not be noticeable or even occur, if your skin is protected."
