If you really feel the cold or want to extend your diving season into the winter months, consider a drysuit.
Drysuits are designed to keep you completely dry and warm while diving in cold waters, by not allowing any water to enter the suit. This offers a much higher level of insulation and opens up many extreme water environments for exploration.
How much does a diving drysuit cost?
The cost of a SCUBA diving drysuit can vary widely, with prices generally ranging from around AUD $1500 to well over $4000. Factors like the style membrane verse neoprene, types of material, brand reputation, and accessories like drysuit gloves, hoods and undergarments all play a significant role in determining the price of your drysuit.
Generally, drysuits are used for cold water diving environments, however membrane drysuits have become popular in the professional, commercial and scientific fields in tropical water as they allow longer immersion times, can be quickly donned and doffed and can be thermally adjusted using different types of thermal exposure wear like Sharkskin.
