Custom drysuit for female?

Post by on the rocks » Sat Feb 02, 2019 10:31 am

My partner is looking to get a custom fit drysuit. The off the shelf options don't fit, she currently uses separate dry trousers and cag but the waist seal is too cumbersome and not water tight enough. Please can anyone recommend a supplier? A drop seat or similar arrangement is essential. Thankyou

Reed ? (Chillcheater)
You’ll need to speak to them to have the drop seat added.

Andi Riley at DAM Watersports will make one to measure for you. Give them a ring on 01234 - 267314 or email: damwatersports@yahoo.co.uk

I have short legs and could not get one off the shelf to fit either. Had mine 10 years now and still going strong, can't fault it.

Look no further than Dam X, excellent dry suits made to measure at affordable prices. Built to last, not breathable, but are any?

DAM X do breathable, but the non-breathable will last a lot longer.

I use Dam X as does my wife, they are not as stiff as they look & seem to be reliable & robust.
