Our PADI Instructor Nick reviews his new Aqua Lung Fusion Dry Suit
This dry suit changed my perception on dry suit diving. Having tried several different trilaminate suits my enjoyment of dry suit wasn’t at an all time high. Leaking seals, immobility and inability to find the correct size had severely deterred me from cold water diving. The problem being wetuists are not suitable for year round teaching in the UK. So I was offered a chance to try the aqualung fusion sports dry suit, a membrane dry suit that at first I wasn’t sure about, but after doning my undersuit and dry suit, the mobility this suit offered over a typical trilaminate was markedly increased. I have always struggled to get my fins on wearing a trilaminate. Once on these dry suits feel completely different and are light and fit quite snug up against the body with out the squeeze other dry suits give. The outer layer compresses the membrane to the body so there is no excess overhanging parts and reduces the amount of trapped air in the dry suit.
Diving in these types of suits is amazing, they don’t require much air on decent to prevent a squeeze and make neutral buoyancy and proper trim a breeze. They are amazingly comfortable and easy to dive in and make teaching in the cooler months so much more enjoyable.
