DUI CLX450 Drysuit
The DUI CLX450 Drysuit is a heavyweight drysuit for divers where only the most robust drysuit will stand the test of time. The CLX450 is made with a Cordura blend / Butyl Rubber / Polyester trilaminate upper body with a Cordura overlay over the chest and arms. The lower body is made from a polyester / butyl rubber / polyester trilaminate with cordura knee overlay. Cordura is extremely tough and very resistant to puncture and cuts from abrasion; it can be found it many garments and is popular with the military. The DUI CLX450 Drysuit maybe heavier than other drysuits but DUI have ensure maximum flexibility thanks to a wide range of features.
Quick zip front loading design
The DUI CLX450 is fitted with a cross chest, quick zip. Unlike traditional zips this one starts on the right hip and ends on the left shoulder, this makes zipping and unzipping both the dry zipper and zipper cover quicker. By moving the zip from the back and placing it across the chest it frees up shoulder movement as there is no longer a stiff rod across the back, this helps with valve drills no end. The main zipper is protected from contaminants and wear and tear thanks to a flap and plastic zipper, this helps to prolong the life of the dry zip.
Overall manoeuvrability of the upper body is helped by a telescopic torso. Extra length is giving in the trunk section of the CLX450 to allow the suit to be puller easily over the head for comfortable donning and doffing. The extra give in the mid-section makes reaching up and behind much easier as the suit is free to move with you rather than staying put. Once back in a normal diving position an elastic crotch strap helps to keep and excess material in check to keep the suit streamlined.
Warm neck collar
The chest overlay is fitted with a neoprene collar which helps to protect the latex neck seal from UV damage when at the surface but to help keep the neck warm when underwater. Latex is a poor insulator on its own but the warm neck collar helps to reduce heat dissipation. A hood with a warm neck collar can be tucked inside to provide further warmth and helps to hood to stay in position through the dive.
In keeping with the rest of CLX450’s rugged design Rock boots are fitted to the suit. Neoprene socks are fitted instead of traditional boots and then an over boot, known as a Rock boot is worn over the top. This is the most sturdy boot design giving plenty of ankle support for walking across rough terrain, the over boot also keeps air out of the foot for increased comfort and the added layer of material helps to keep the foot warm.
Zip Seals – optional extra
Zip Seals have revolutionised the way neck and wrist seals are attached to drysuits and are DUI’s most current patent. A flexible ring is attached at the neck and wrist that features a series of ridges, the end of the seal features complementing ridges that lock inside those of the suit. TheZip Seal system allows a seal to be changed in a matter of minutes, a vital upgrade when you really cant afford to miss a dive.
