HDC TECH DRY suits

High end gear manufacturer BARE is introducing a new drysuit that is seriously tough.

If you throw everything including the kitchen sink at your drysuit, this one will be worth a look.

BARE says the HDC TECH DRY is its most durable new suit, designed for avid recreational, technical and professional divers who require an extra level of protection.

Tommy Aoki, Brand Manager for BARE said: “The HDC TECH DRY is an exceptionally tough but lightweight drysuit that can endure heavy use in rugged environments where you could encounter sharp or abrasive surfaces that would eventually damage normal suits.

“This is absolutely the toughest suit we’ve ever made. We’re using three types of highly protective stretch fabrics to ensure maximum comfort and mobility. With a full Cordura body, Keprotec kneepads made with Kevlar as well as lower sleeves, shoulders and seat reinforced with Cordura Ripstop, the HDC TECH DRY is practically bulletproof.”

Tommy hasn’t finished. Taking another breath, he said: “These fabrics are amazingly lightweight, and along with our attention to fit, they’re also extremely comfortable. As with all our drysuits, the seams and workmanship are guaranteed for life.”

Helping to ensure a more comfortable fit are the patented Automatic Torso Recoil system, which controls torso length and eliminates the need for a crotch strap.

The suit’s anatomical design does away with needless bulk and improves hydrodynamics. A removable inflator valve backer pad improves comfort when being ’squeezed’ at depth.

“We’ve put a lot of thought and effort into this suit,” continued Tommy. ”We’re very, very proud of it. It’s got so many extra features that divers appreciate. But first and foremost, it’s tough. Tougher than anything out there.

“These suits will last a long, long time.”

For the more technical/cave diving minded, the HDC also comes in an EXPEDITION model, with a slim “cave cut” design and crotch strap, and includes two high volume TECH POCKETS, TECH BOOTS, and Apeks valves.

The HDC TECH DRY is offered in 16 standard sizes (men’s only), red or black, as well as a custom and MTM drysuit.

The EXPEDITION version is only available as a custom MTM drysuit in red or black.

The HDC TECH DRY is priced at £1,699.15 (RRP), and is on sale from UK BARE dealers now.
