Apollo EDGE Drysuit - Custom

First of all, Apollo had to define the perfect drysuit; one that is so simple to use that there is no discernible difference between diving in it and diving in a wetsuit. Basically, divers want the warmth of a drysuit with all the advantages of a wetsuit. What sets Apollo’s drysuit line apart from the others is an advanced computer aided design system that provides for a complete custom fit; a new material called Microcell neoprene; and state of the art hardware.

 

Fit is everything as it determines the comfort, drag and ease of swimming of the drysuit. Apollo employs an advanced computer aided design system that utilises up to 32 measurements in making each suit from scratch for each individual customer. The computer is linked to an automatic drafting table printer, which prints out a pattern based on measurement data. This system cost $100,000, and today Apollo is on its third generation system, capable of drawing about 140 suits per day. Panels of material cut from the pattern are then hand glued, then blind stitched, before being heat taped to ensure a long life of complete dryness. During these stages, a single technician works with a single suit to maintain quality and uniformity of the design throughout the whole process.

 

A custom fit has obvious benefits for divers with non-standard builds, but even for those who can wear off the rack suits, custom fitting can dramatically decrease diver drag in the water. As there are no folds of material to catch water or to snag in a cave, wreck or other overhead environment. Anyone diving in a high flow situation will readily notice and appreciate this point. A second advantage is in the wrist seals. Apollo’s computer program utilises both wrist and forearm measurements to create a more cylindrical fit as opposed to a conical shape, providing more surface area at the actual seal. This produces a significantly drier suit. Boot measurements are also part of the custom fit and the soles are rugged, giving the diver plenty of support, even during difficult entries or exits.

Choosing to go for a Custom made Drysuit gives you many benefits over and above an off the rack Drysuit model.

Please Note that a custom made Apollo Drysuit will take between four and six weeks to make.
