    Far and Away the Coolest Thing at BTS

    Those of us lucky enough to catch Joe Dituri's talk on Friday night had our collective ears perk up at some buzzwords he used: "1 atm suit" "swimmable" "150lbs." $10k-$12k". He said you can actually just get up off the bench and jump in with it on. This is something I have long dreamt of, but figured it was decades away. Apparently not, the Exosuit is currently in Beta testing. Depth rating of 100m-200m, depending if it is poured aluminum, steel or titanium. The rebreather is built into the unit, with a 48 hour run time. It's hard to believe these specs, as they would seem to defy physics (to say nothing of the pricing), but if there is anyone who knows this stuff it is Dr. Nuytten.

    C'mon, how unbelievably sexy is that?

    Wow. I'm drooling at the thought of that! 48 hr runtime, 1 ATA, 600'? That would certainly redefine a "no deco" dive!

    How is that price point even possible? Would be awesome if true but wow, seems almost incomprehensible.

    good luck to him and if he can get them out the door for 10-12k each then hats off to him. I'll wait until the first units shop before i throw money down, even so it would be just too cool.

    For that kind of run time Laura would have to add the "U-poo" macerater to her She-P North America line!

    Does it come with a snorkel or a pony in case if you pop an o-ring?
