Looking For A Back-Up Suit

Post by Tom Nic » Thu Aug 29, 2019 12:06 pm

Yeah... I really need one. As much as I dive (or at least want to), and the fact that any repair beyond seals seems to be 6-8 weeks, it makes sense to invest in a back up suit.

So, I don't want to spend 2 to 3 grand for a back up suit - for a primary it makes sense, but in my budget not in a back up.

So... Used? Inexpensive new?

Looking for a shell suit, 2xl to 3xl depending on how it's cut. My rental is going to cost me around $500 for a week, so I figure I kick in a little more and I should be able to pick up a back-up suit.

Any and all suggestions will be gratefully received!

He's listed it on NWDC as well. Figured I would share again. He has 3 for sale, one I recall was a laminate.
