    I'll be curious to see what shows up. For me, the list was only "one" as I had to find a shop that did it (a rep. for manufacturer), and about 15 years ago, information like this was somewhat limited/guarded) - I ended up with DUI.....

    DUI does have a good web site that is easy to navigate. Many others are very hard to get specific information from.

    The website story may be limited on many since it's usually a measured by the shop deal. DUI does communicate the whole program but others may barely mention it. This is contrast that many custom wetsuis made from home measurements.

    The limitations of offshore production probably keep some out of the game. Even with express shipping, one rework cycle kills the margin/vlaue for 1 or both parties.

    HOG will do a full custom suit.
    My first drysuit came from OS Systems and it was a semi custom. They also do full custom.
    USIA will as well.
