Typhoon drysuits : technical data

High everybody,

I'm looking for some technical data about the Typhoon drysuits, made in TX4 fabric. What are the figures for respirability (in g/cm2/24h) and impermeability (in mm) ? I cannot find the information anywhere, and Typhoon does not seem wanting to answer my question (asked on their website)

Any idea ?

Thank's in advance,

Olivier

I don't think it matters. How breathable is your BA, spray deck or any material when it's wet?

If Typhoon don't say, they probably don't know. In my experience they've always been pretty good at customer interaction. I haven't seen any test results, so all I can say is that for respirability, if I rinse my Typhoon suit and drain the free water off it, both inside out and right side out, I can hang it up and by the time the cuffs and hood are dry, the inside will also be dry. For impermeability, if I go in the water I don't get wet.

I got a typhoon drysuit and rate it very highly. Breathability far superior to my Palm cag ( boil in the bag and damp from sweat ) I looked at a lot of reviews and all rated highly.add on the fact that the RNLI use them.
