Dry Suit Diving
When the temperature drops below 16º C, a special piece of equipment is needed : a dry suit, a constant volume suit or a suit which allows the circulation of hot water and heaters for the inhaled gas.
Unlike a wet suit, a dry suit insulates from the surrounding water and keeps warm, even in very cold water.
Thanks to these characteristics, the dry suit allow the diver to stay longer underwater, even during the autumn and winter months.
When wearing the correct suit in colder water, hypothermia is no longer a problem for our organism. However, diving in very cold water may be a source of other problems.
