    I was wondering why I get a water pocket right above the boot line. I kept wondering why my feet were so heavy after a dive. I originally assumed it was a long winter and I was out of shape. But after looking closely at a picture of me exiting the water I realized it was actually extra water weight.

    Does anyone have an explanation for the benefit of having such a design?

    Thanks

    Rich,

    There is a layer of 1000 Denier Cordura overlayed over the top of your drysuit material. There should be a drain hole right above the boot where you will see water draining out. If you do not have water draining out, there may be a problem. Give it a look and let me know what you find.

    Thanks for the response.

    It is draining. Just not as quick as I get out of the surfline. Here is the same picture with better contrast to show the drainage. Does it look like it is coming out at an expected rate?
