Drysuit pockets

Postby Milky » Fri Aug 15, 2008 1:24 pm

hey all,

On average how many pockets do u guys have on your drysuit? and which types? I have the thigh pockets for left n right with velcro (but i wanna have at least one of them with zipper for my wide angle lens). Can u make your own pockets or buy another pockets that is not for drysuit and have it installed/glued or straps onto your suit?

What is the most # of pockets u have seen in a drysuit before?

I've got two pockets on my current suit, both velcro flaps - but I've stitched in loops that I can slip stuff to; having lost stuff before because the velcro came undone. Came with just one pocket, got the other glued on by The Dive Doctor (www.thedivedoctor.co.nz).

New suit - fingers crossed may have arrived today - has two zippered pockets; but will still stitch in the attachment loops as it makes it easy to sort through stuff without losing it.

New pockets no problem - you can buy the pockets and do it yourself, or get the Dive Doctor or Oceandry to do it for you.

You can buy Halcyon pockets online, though they don't have zipped pockets;

Try the dive shops. The Bare suits have zipped pockets, and you could probably get some pockets from Global Dive.
