    It has been suggested contacting Steve Gamble for recommendations. I forgot Steve is a Brooks dealer, which is where I got my first suit and became a big fan. My current suit I ordered directly from them because the exchange rate is pretty good.

    I have a SF tech, and I really like it. It is a shell suit, with Kevlar in all the high wear places.

    You can get a brand new DUI suit for half price if you qualify for their Keyman program. You don't have to work for a DUI dealar; you just have to be "in the public eye."

    I have a Santi E.Lite. While I don't have experience with other drysuits I am very happy with the Santi. It has worked well from day one. I have only had one small leak from some sand lodge in the dump which was fixed easily. I'm usually the only "dry" one after a day of diving.

    Anyone ever try the SF Tech drysuits? Opinions of them?

    Gamble recommends them and I've heard good things. I have to have zipseals or an equivalent as a requirement so never looked closely at them. Stuck with dui.

    I have zipseals on my 4th element hybrid suit, installed by Gamble. Options are always available And the ScubaForce suits look pretty slick

    I have one of the new Scubaforce NST suits for almost a year now, and of the 10+ suits I have owned it by far the most flexible, and no leaks yet after 150 dives. But be sure to get a metal zip, not the Tyzip version.

    He's officially stopped doing that. He's a full fledged dui dealer now and they told him to stop. He doesn't even glue site he seals on zip rings any,ore. To make dui happy he had them specially make him bottleneck zipseals. I'm sure he may do it now and again for extra special clients, but if the average joe walks in he'll tell them dui has tied his hands.
