When it comes to selecting a wet suit or a dry suit an individual should understand which one is best for the particular diving that they may plan to be doing. This is because wetsuits are best for warmer areas while a dry suit will work best in cold waters and this is one of the major differences between them. In this discussion, we are going to look at some of the differences between wet suits and dry suits and which one is most preferred in different environments. Both the wetsuit and the dry suit are known to keep an individual’s body warm throughout by ensuring that they maintain the right body temperatures. As much as they may have this in common you find that each type of suit still works differently to be able to achieve the desired results that an individual may be looking for.
A wetsuit is best suitable for water sports in areas of cold waters and this is why it is normally tightly fitted around an individual’s body and it is made from a rubber-like material known as neoprene. A wetsuit usually comes in different body parts and one might decide to cover the entire body or use the one known as “shorty” which is best for snorkeling under warm water dives. Depending on the type of diving that one may plan to go for, one will get to determine the thickness of the neoprene so that they can be able to keep one warm with well-regulated body temperature. A wetsuit protects the body of an individual by trapping water between the suit and the skin of the individual so that they can get to heat the water to maintain a regular temperature that will keep them comfortable.
A dry suit, on the other hand, provides warmth in a different way by allowing room for wearing undergarments in the suit that keep an individual warm throughout their diving process. A wetsuit allows water to get into the suit so that it can heat it up to give one to the individual warmth while on the other hand a dry suit uses undergarments to maintain the individual’s temperatures. In the event that you may be handling a dry suit for the first time, make sure that you go through a specialty course from a professional instructor. In this discussion, we have been able to understand that for you to settle for the right scuba diving suit you have to put into consideration the particular diving you will be indulging in.
