ION Fuse Lightweight Drysuit FZ 2021

Postby Gergz » Tue Nov 24, 2020 8:48 pm

Has anyone already tried this drysuit?

This is the new lightweight waterproof and breathable material from ION apparently. What I'm most concerned about are the Neoprene cuffs! How is it performing in stronger winds and jumping/swimming in this suit?

Thanks for your two cents!

I have used it a few times and absolutely nothing bad to say. Few hours on practicing ducktacks, backroll turns etc. with a foil = many many many falls and endless body drags and still super happy about it. If you do a hard face first slam might get a bit water in but I had no problem what so ever.
And getting into the suit is just genious!
OK I deal with these suits so I guess I am biased but still happy about it :)

Why use a freaking back zip????...Ocean Rodeo must have a patent on front zip design..

Thank you guys for the info! I have just ordered mine so hopefully I can test it too as well.

harppa, how is it to wear your harness on top of all the clothing you wear under the drysuit?
