    Has anyone tried the waterproof meshtec undergarments?
    How warm is it?

    I have not used their Meshtec yet but have used their BodyTec Dual Layer. I find it quite warm using it around 58 degrees F with their D7 cordura drysuit. How cold do you think you will be diving?

    I just did some icedives, water temps at 38-39 Degrees F and was very warm with the BodyTec Dual Layer + warmtec 200g.

    good morning. I just did my first two dives in a D10 wearing bodytec single layer and Meshtec tops and bottoms. water temp was 39 degrees. first dive was 40 min. and the second was 36 min. I was also wearing the ultima glove system. I stayed nice and toasty warm. the meshtec lets you dive with a slight squeeeze on the suit without compressing the undergarment. it is warmer than dual layer bodytec alone. Great product, you wont be dissapointed.
    I used the size of my drysuit for sizing. DIVE SAFE!!!

    How was your weighting with the meshtec?

    Just did a dive with the meshtec with the same config as you,
    bodytec+meshtec and Draco(older version of D10) dry-suit.

    Normally I dive with a compression layer and the bodytec with which I require 9kgs (20lb).
    With the meshtec 12kgs (26lb) barely enabled me to get negative.

    I do tend to dive with a slight squeeze and little air in the suit, meshtec adds loads of air in the suit compared to that.
    Next dive I'm gonna try 14kgs (31lb).

    I have and have used a meshtec top. It provides about the same warmth as a 400 gram wool shirt. I am most comfortable with an extra two pounds of lead when I use the top - as such it has moved to my backup bin.
