    DUI zip seals

    Just purchased a used DUI CLX450. I was very happy with the condition, and the fit. The only thing thats miffs me is that it came with no neck and wrist seals. It has the zip seal system.

    The reason for my post is to see if anyone in Florida (especially around cave country) would carry the seals in stock. I didn't see any mention of them on Gambles website. I would be open to other suggestions about weather to keep the zip seal system, or replace it.

    Thanks for all your expertise.

    Cheers, Walt

    Keep them,
    They cost a fortune to install. Although the seals in themselves are not for free it is nice to have a pair in advance (kept in the darkness) because if you dont have spare it kind of kill their purpose

    Keep the zip seal system,

    Once you have a spare set in your kit bag they are worth their weight in gold......

    Their dry gloves are shear bliss for cold water diving.

    P.S keep any old wrist seals as you can re use them, by buying the cone seals and glue them on yourself ;)

    I have Zip Seals on my DUI I like them quite a bit. I have kept the original seals and when they wore out I cut off the Conical POS seals and glued on Bottle neck shape. 100X better. But I kept the zip seal system. Gamble will do this for you or if you send it to us we would gladly do it for you. We stock tons of different sizes, shapes and styles of seals.

    I really appreciate all the responses. I called Extreeme Exposure today and they have both the silicone and latex wrist and neck seals in stock. I will be picking them up in the morning.

    I am really thinking about going with the silicone ones for comfort reasons. My old latex ones on my Santi suit always made me feel like I was being choked out. I would really be interested in hearing your experience with the silicone seals, and what your thoughts are. Can new silicone seals be attached or glued to the old ones like people have done with the latex ones?

    Cheers, Walt

    I am talking out my butt rather than from personal experience, but it seems that the silicone can not be glued very easily at all.

    One of my friends tried using silicone seals and found them to tear very easily and went back to latex.

    I agree with you Dsix36. I have heard that you cant glue the silicone, but I wasn't sure. I also hear you have to be very careful with them. They are a bit more expensive, so I am weighing how much comfort I will gain for the extra cost.

    I'm on my first pair of the silicone wrist seals. My wrists routinely leak in latex because of my tendons and I'm not having that issue with the silicone so far. I have read about them tearing easily so I baby soap them to go on. I have about 40 hours on them and they look new.

    Are the silicone seals bottle shaped or conical? I had the same problem with my tendons for years till I switched to bottle shaped seals.
