I don't know how you would go about it but Maori names like: Tangaroa - god of the sea, ika - fish, wai - water, Taniwha - a Maori word for a mythical monster or demon.



Hi Wayne,

Thanks for your comments and suggestions. As soon as the suits get here I will be taking detailed pictures of them all and letting everyone know that they are available.


Talk soon

Then it could be the DSD: Halocline or DSD: Minerva...etc etc..



Hey Rob, I am beginning to see where you were coming from with the DSD thing. Like DUI . Ok, you got me thinking. will give it more thought and see what comes out at the end of the tunnel. (hopefully a bright light!!!!!)

Besides, all my mates would be relentless in give me hell about that for eternity. But thanks anyway!!!

You're right - they would give you hell.

How about the Divagate Suit (to stray, digress, to wander)?
I can't find it in the dictionary to back up or confirm, but maybe "Diluvian" Suit?
the "Caul" Suit (another word for Membrane Suit)

A few more for you Pete...

The Slipstream : this sounds pretty fast like a SailFish, like having to slip into the suit and stream - as in water

Knightsuit : Dedicated to the Poor Knights (yes I've been there)

Subsuit : for those subterranean types like that submariner Aquaman, Marine Boy and the Man from Atlantis

Oceanus : Actually saw an english Soccer player with this as his surname - lucky fellow.

Well, I got a sneak preview of the new Drysuits Direct range this afternoon, thanks Pete!

Some nice looking suits - so nice we ordered one for the wife on the spot. 8)


I'd keep it simple on the naming front, Pete... the suit available in black only could be the T100 (T for the Model T), and the other suit the F100 (F for fancy, 'cause you can have more colours). Once the crushed neoprene suits are avaialble, they could then be the C100.

As you add more suits to the range, you can just up the number to the T200 etc.

Hi Guys,

Hot off the press, here is the new official branding of the suits. Thanks Rob and everyone else that offered a lot of ideas and thoughts torwards the suits. I got this idea off Rob for the new branding. here it is


Image



And the new T100 Tech trilam suit

Image


Havent quite sorted out a price as yet but with the exchange rates killing everyone - but I still want to make these suits affordable. So they will be round the $2200 - $2300 mark.

Thanks for the order Andy and I hope to have my site fully updated within the week.

Looking forward to it arriving Pete! I'm sure the wife will be over the moon, it's a great looking suit - and way less colourful than the yellow and turquoise number she's been wearing off and on!
