Proper wet suit care can help protect your investment and give you many warm dives.
A scuba diving wet suit can be pricey, anywhere from $50 to $800+ for some custom made suits. So what care will protect this investment?
Luckily it is pretty easy and straightforward. However, do realize that all wetsuits will eventually start to shrink and stiffen somewhat no matter what type of wet suit care you practice. But you can prolong inevitable.
(Take a look at our wetsuit buyers guide for a complete list of all our pages and information on wetsuits including our picks for best wetsuits at different price points.)
Salt water can cause neoprene to lose its flexibility. Not to mention the nasty smell an unrinsed wet suit can have.
So there you have it, the basics of wet suit care. May your wetsuit last forever (or however long is practical).
