    DUI's warranty is 3 years on the material of the "standard" suits, 7 on the "premium". Only 1 year on zipper, the exhaust valves, the inlet valve and crotch strap. 90 days on seals. I know people who have been happily diving the same DUI suit regularly for more than a decade, but I would be super pissed if my $2K+ suit's zipper had a problem in year 2.

    Plus lightweight for travel and they dry pretty much instantly

    Came from Bare.com set to Canada, switching to Global or US yields the same results.

    There are several flavors of neoprene. DUI's "Crushed Neoprene", for example, does not change buoyancy much (if at all) with depth.

    +1! My DUI CF200SP (crushed neoprene, with neoprene zipper guard, thigh pocket, and fold-under neck- and wrist seals) takes forever to dry. And if I travel before it dries, my minivan loses about 10 mpg! Okay, not really, but that sucker, already heavy when dry, is sooooooo heavy when wet!

    The good thing, though, is that it (my particular drysuit) requires less lead and thinner undergarments (so, requires even less-less lead).
