Refurbish OR Soul drysuit

Postby knot_moving » Fri Jan 01, 2021 5:50 am

Leg seal split on me this morning as I was putting my suit on. Suit is about 7 years old so I guess its time to replace them. I would like to have them replaced with goretex booties (or something similar). Looking for recommendations on where to have this done and if there is something specific I should ask for.

Also I think the pee zipper is leaking slightly. Is there something I can coat the zipper with to improve sealing? Other option is to just use some 3M 4200 black and just seal it permanently - I never seem to use it.

Refurbish for now. You probably will not be able to get a new one. Our local shop was told April before OR can even get them made. I was going to replace mine this year as well. Just have to wait now.

Rainy Pass Repair is your answer. They can fix and pressure test (zipper test) drysuits and they're also a certified Goretex repair center. :thumb:

Thanks - I will try your rainypass recommendation first - since they hopefully can put in the gore-tex booties! Not a huge shipping difference from Fl to West coast or NE.
