    So does that mean Baby Powder that is virtually 100% talc but contains fragrance should not be used as well?

    All the best,

    Yes. That's why people make the effort to buy the pure talc.

    Another thing to be weary of is hair gel. Any petroleum based products will contaminate the latex.

    I thought I would add to this thread even though it is getting old. I have used seal savor for many years with good results. I will also use it the day of my dive instead of talc powder. I find the Seal Savor works better for me in keeping neck rash away and helps me slip into my seals with no problems. I also use it after diving when I clean and store my suit.

    I have used an ice chest to store suits to keep them more air tight and away from hydrocarbons in a garage environment.

    I just ordered a Fusion and look forward to diving with it. I damaged the zipper on my shell suit because someone placed a heavy box on my gear bag. Is there a special way to transport the Fusion when flying? Do you store your suit rolled up or hang it at all times between dives?

    I transport my Fusion this way:

    • Zip drysuit zipper closed.
    • Lay suit face down.
    • Roll suit from feet to neck.
    • Cross arms "behind" rolled up suit.

    At home, or overnight on dive boat, hung up on a drysuit hanger.


    All the best, James

    I do the same for transport.

    At home though I lay it over the top of a bar in my basement so it is basically folded in half with the zipper open...
