Crewsaver’s drysuit are built to be tough, but as with all equipment they do require a certain level of care and maintenance to ensure continued performance.
Rinse And Dry
After a day on the water, it is easy to change quickly and to put your kit in a bag and leave it in the car until next time. But this does not help our kit, please follow the below instructions instead:
A) Rinse your suit in clean fresh water – both inside and out
B) Hang your drysuit up to dry, in a well vented area, but not in direct sun light
C) Make sure the drysuit is completely dry before storing it
D) While transporting: Fold your drysuit carefully trying to ensure the zip remains flat, as bending the zip can break the teeth.
- Zips are an integral part of your drysuit and need special attention.
- Keep sand/grit and general dirt out of the zip, do not use oil based lubricants as this only attracts them
- Avoid forcing jammed zips, or extensive pulling as again this may damage the teeth.
- Zips should be lubricated regularly with Bees Wax
- Zips should never be folded as this will break the teeth.
- Do not forget this also applies to the relief zip.
Latex seal are made from a natural product and care should be taken with them as they are fragile, always rinse in clean water making sure you remove contaminates such as sun location, body oils, make up, after shave, perfumes, pollutants, etc. this will extend the life of your seals. Allow to dry before storing.
On all Crewsaver Drysuits the Latex neck and wrist seals can be trimmed to suit the individual requirements. It is important to follow the comprehensive instructions provided with each Drysuit purchased.
