Dry suit survey - Roho

WET n DRY Dry suit survey

Distributor: Robin Hood Watersports 01924 444888.
First Impressions: It looks like a cheap copy of a more expensive Cordura suit. Obviously made down to a price.
Material and Construction: All seams are taped on the outside but only some are taped on the inside. None appear to be stitched.
Boots: Standard unlined wellie-style.
Zip: Mediumweight with outer covering flap.
Seals: Heavy-duty latex parallel wrist seals. Conical latex neck seal with neoprene collar fixed in position.
Wrist Seal Contact Length: 3.5cm.
Knee Pads: Double layer of suit material over knee and shin.
Valves: Apeks rotating inflation valve and low-profile dump valve with outer gaskets.
Notable Other Features: Quick-release braces.
Ease of Dressing: A cinch to get in and out of..
In The Water: Surprisingly, a very nice suit once in the water. One of the most comfortable. The inflator felt a bit juddery but I was totally dry. I felt almost as if I had no suit on. No-one would be disappointed if this was their first drysuit but it was slow to dump air, even with a Roman salute.
Approx. Weight: 4kg.
Made-to-Measure: Yes.
Tested by: Tim Bradley.
