    Re: Sharkskin underwear

    Test of the Sharkskin underwear today.

    Water temperature 5°C. I weared the Sharkskin, thin thinsulate underwear from ski fashion and my Otter drysuit travelskin trilaminate.

    After 45 Minutes in water I had a little bit cold. After dive I realized that some water entered the suit trough the neck seal, propably afer turning my head to much. At dive nothing was noticed except this cold feeling at the end of dive.
    All in all I was + 50 minutes in the 5°C water, that's more then expected, especially with a wet chest!

    I noticed that compared to my 200G Otter underwear I need the same amount of lead. That's also more than expected. According to Sharkskin no extra lead should be needed, so I expected falling like a rock. This is not the case.

    Anyway, this undersuit is not bad at all. I keep update.

    Cheers,
    Patrick.

    Re: Sharkskin underwear

    Some news. I was in late september in Croatia. Water temp. 17°C. I was the only one with drysuit. Was a 2mm Crushed neoprene and undersuit the Sharkskin. This was PERFECT. Not much lead and very warm & confortable. Everybody else frozes after 30 Min in water. I make some dives around 1 hour and could stay easily another hour. But then with P-valve which this spare drysuit doesn't has.

    Equipement: No Name drysuit 2mm crushed neoprene, Sharkskin undersuit, SF-2 Rebreather, force fins & 5 Kg of lead. I guess I could drop 1 Kg lead, but decided to keep it like this.

    Cheers,

    Patrick.

    Hi guys,
    Me again resurrecting and old thread.
    I've just changed from neoprene to trilaminate drysuit, and would love to hear about people having dived with just a sharkskin under a trilaminate, and how you felt?

    I've done more than 2h with sharksin under a 3mm compressed neoprene drysuit in 17 degrees water in good comfort, but i don't think i can expect the same with my new drysuit.

    Cheers
    Nicolas

    I just made the compressed neoprene to trilam jump as well. In 72* fahrenheit water, when the air temperature is warmer than the water, the sharkskin works great as long as the dives are still under 2 hrs or so. This past weekend when it was 50* fahrenheit on the surface in north florida I upped the undergarments. Although, I don’t have much ‘bioprene’ either (6’1” 140lbs). YMMV.
