Drysuit Repair

Post by derekcs » Thu Apr 06, 2017 10:06 am

I have an old crushed neoprene drysuit (Teknodiver) that needs a thorough overhaul. Zipper, boots, wrist seals. What's a good shop in the Seattle/Tacoma area to take it to?

For those concerned, I replaced this drysuit with the one I currently use a couple years ago.

Diving unlimited international (aka DUI) repairs other manufacturers suits now as well... they've dramatically expanded the repair section of factory compared to first time I was down there...

I've had a bad year for drysuit zippers. I've had to replace two already this year and a third one is sitting in the garage. I've had the two replaced this year at TLSEA, I will soon send my third one in to the same shop.
