    Then fill it with water. You'll see the leak. (Next time)

    The bottom end of the zipper or the crotch?

    S#*t, I hope not. I'm pretty sure the zips fine (read hope), although given its a Tizip could well be. I'd be pissed given its only done around 70-80 dives. Guess I'll find out in the next few days.

    In my case a new zipper was leaking at the attachment point. I just removed and replaced the the failing aquaseal (about 60%). So far so good....if I haven't jinxed myself. Hopefully your zipper's fine and you just have a butt leak. I meant leaky butt....hey wait....that's not what I meant at all.

    Thomas? He is the person I would refer you to and your story is similar to many I know, local shops won’t touch it

    Drum roll....

    He found several pin hole leaks around the kidney area which would match my wet spot. He's going to check further but hopefully that's all it was.

    My next question is how did it get pin hole leaks?

    I'm guessing a light in a dark room would have revealed those holes.

    No, m suit comes into contact with nothing except me and the gear im using. It's location is under my plate. It's very strange, perhaps just wear from the plate rubbing...that would make the material seem rather fragile...
