Drysuit

Postby dericcio2 » Wed Nov 24, 2021 11:02 pm

Dear kiters,
Finally I have received my new drysuit prolimit nordic, I unpack it and uuuu amazing finishing perfect manschette, perfect shape and size but… fabric is extremly thin!
I am using drysuit since more then 10 years very happy with it and Never seen such thin material.
Before I had gul, prolimit hydrogen, tried wip forward.
All of these had this kind of strong nylon impossible to tear!
It does not make sense to save 100g weight and having that risk in cold water.
This nonsense continuous downsizing of all kite materials!
In future I will go back to neos!
Have you the same experience with drysuits?

It s not a matter of prive.. gul and prolimit as well in the past used thicker fabric… and were cheaper…

I have owned 3 drysuits, Gul, Kokatat and Level 6. All 3 had more or less the same thickness of fabric the Gul is 15 years old and still useable but there is some small leaks in the zipper seal. The newest is the Level 6 about 3 year old doing fine so far. Maybe this is unique to this brand.
