Hi,

looking for help and advice about neck seals on a membrane drysuit. I am going to order a new drysuit but am unsure about neck seals, one guy in my club says to get neoprene and the other says latex.

Help!

Hi, the first consideration before you decide do you have a small or large neck? if your neck is small say 14 coller then you may be better to go for laytex more steetch but if you have a medium to lage coller size then both seals are ok, how ever the neoprean seal is much harder wearing will last longer, and allso keep you warmer I have a 17.5 coller size and a short neck i have tried neoprean and latex, I find the latex is much better for me, latex tends to roll down and becomes very uncomfortable, the neoprean takes a few times to get used to but is a much more comfortable seal, and retains more body heat, I hope this is of some help and best of luck Paul
