WET n DRY Dry suit survey
MOBY (414) THE SUITS


Distributor: Moby Diving Equipment 01280 706897.
First Impressions: Appears to use thicker material than the similar Aquion Pro. The stitching looked a bit tacky. Reflective strips look like they came off a motorcyclists jacket. A basic entry-level suit obviously made down to a price.
Material and Construction: Trilaminate. The material looks long-lasting but the stitching gives cause for concern. The seams are glued and single-taped on the inside. The waist is elasticated at the back.
Boots: Substantial neoprene-lined rubber boots.
Zip: Mediumweight with protective flap held closed by some strips of Velcro.
Seals: Latex bellows-style neck seal. Parallel latex wrist seals.
Wrist Seal Contact Length: 3.5cm.
Knee Pads: A nice touch - they feel like they have padding between the layers of material.
Valves: Sitec fixed inflator. High-profile auto dump with studs visible on the inside. Gaskets on the outside.
Notable Other Features: Narrow webbing braces stitched rather poorly and fixed at the back. Only one anchor-point.
Ease of Dressing: It just slipped on.
In The Water: I found that the dump valve was positioned totally in the wrong place. I had to lie on my back to get rid of the air. Its positioned thus because it really needs to go exactly where there is a seam. I stayed dry.
Approx. Weight: 3.7kg.
Made-to-Measure: Yes.
Tested By: Tim Bradley.
