About Waterproof D1 Hybrid Drysuit

Waterproof spent three years analyzing the problems of standard dry suit; they sourced superior quality materials and exhaustively tested prototypes in the Antarctic to find the answer to the perfect dry suit. The results of this analysis produced the revolutionary patented D1 Hybrid. The D1 is the world's first Insulated Constant Volume Dry Suit.

The first suit ever with Integrated Silicone Seals (I.S.S.). No more aborted dives due to seal rupture. You can change the seals on the spot in no time. Silicone offers great ozone, chemical and UV resistance paired with a high comfort factor due to its flexibility. Say goodbye to neck & wrist seal choke! Suit has 3D Mesh Lining that provides built-in warmer insulation. The lining is fixed to the suit which avoids internal movement; it is part of the suit and fits accordingly. Your body moves inside the lining. This concept allows a slimmer fitting suit-cut while keeping you fully insulated.

The 3D lining has no obstructions making donning easier, no overheating when worn on land between dives, and is soft with better buoyancy control characteristics. There is no damp underwear when you finish diving and no contact with the condensation moisture on the shell, in every aspect, more comfortable than traditional bulky underwear.

This unique 3D mesh construction like a bed mattress has two layers that are kept apart by nylon springs creating a constant insulation. The inner lining works like a thermos keeping the insulating air between you and the cold water. Lining also provides unrestricted airflow and will not trap air. The outer shell is a 10 Butyl Layer Tri-Laminate design. Other features include; Warm Neck Valve, Elastic Waist Band, Armored Dry Zipper with Chill Guard, Polyurethane embossed seat area for non-slip and abrasion protection, Kevlar Knee Pads Schoeller Keprotec Military Grade, Kevlar reinforced anatomically cut boots, form molded Velcro tabs, Two expandable POWER POCKETS on the thighs with accessory D-Rings mounted inside for attachment of accessories, SI-TECH swiveling inlet valve and adjustable automatic outlet valve, and H1 HAVS hood and dry suit bag.

Comments about Waterproof D1 Hybrid Drysuit:

This is a solid well built drysuit.

I am 5'11" 250 lbs. I ordered a 2 XL and it fits wonderful except the boots. I guess most 2 XL guys have a size 12 foot. But I do not. Had to spend $250.00 to get my size of boots put on. The fact that you can not order a $3k drysuit with correct size boot is the only negative and keeps it from a 5 star. Waterproof aka Tusa recommended Diver's Cove in Essex CT. They did a fabulous job and the new boots look as if they were put on in factory.

I have dove 41F water with just a light skin on underneath. Was warm the entire time. Could not say about previous Drysuit. (White's Fusion Bullet with Thermal fusion undergarment.) The Fusion Bullet was also extremely difficult to get into.

The D1 Hybrid suit is a cinch for a big guy like me to get in and out of.

Did I mention this suit appears bulletproof?

It's on the heavy side and it took me an additional 15 lbs of lead to sink it than same gear without drysuit. This however is the same additional weight I added for my Fusion Bullet. Both drysuits tests were with Aluminum tanks. You will be able to shed off some additional weight with a steel tank.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Can you simply remove the D1 liner for warm climates?
Ben T  The liner is integrated into the suit and cannot be removed.
Shopper  What's the difference in flexibility between the Whites Fusion Bullet drysuit and the D1 drysuit? And what did the diver from Omaha mean when he said the D1 was on the heavy side, how much is heavy?
Ben T  The D1 is extremely well made. The suit is very durable and flexible for its tough material design. The suit weighs approximately 20-25 pounds depending on its size. We do not carry whites suits currently so I can not compare them for you. However we do carry other brands and the D1 is definitely one of our top Drysuits.
Erick L  Hello, I'm thinking about purchasing a Waterproof dtrysuit and I'm not quite sure about size. I'm 1,79cm tall and 78kg (Atheletic and thin legs) so I don't know if I have to go for an ML (1,78cm) or L (1,80cm )?.Thanks
ROBERT P  I am just a little shorter then you. I bought a large, just a little more room for under clothes.
