      Peacock...sorry for my tardiness to get back to you. Still not utterly familiar with all the features of this forum. Ice diving went very well. Had my SR1 as a back-up but dove with my Zeagle Flathead VI that I purchased for my double system. The dive was in 38 - 39F water and I had no problem. The Fusion performed very well....despite noticing a wet spot on my MK2 and sub layer undies due to a small defect. Within two weeks I had a replacement at my door step and I did a thorough inspection of the dry shelf and it is looking good. My girlfriend is presently shopping for a drysuit. She did try my Fusion just to get an idea as to general comfort and mobility. Being the cold type, she will probably be looking at the Bare XCD2 crushed neoprene suit as it is supposed to be a little bit warmer. The DS (Montreal) is holding an annual spring sale mid April and the Bare Bear rep will also be there so she will be able to try it with the warmest undies Bare offer...LOL.

      RTee, how was the ice dive? Did you get to use the new fusion ?
      I did another cold water 38 degrees withe the sr1 and maximus 1st stage with no problems.
