    Poseidon Unisuit Alterations

    I have a ML Poseidon Unisuit with a good zipper and fairly nice neoprene neck and wrist seals. The problem I have is that I get cold hands pretty quickly which has facilitated my search for either 1: new drysuit (thoughts on 4th Element argonaut?) or 2: alterations to poseidon unisuit (in good condition) or even 3: trade in suit and see if I can get a discount for #1

    I have been doing some research online about repairs and alterations and my question specifically on the Unisuit is whether or not one could have SiTec dry glove (or any other suggestion would be great - heard diving concepts may be good) that would allow for removable dry gloves to a silicone wrist seal

    any help is great

    Hi!
    Being not as expirienced as others on this site, i think there are many routes to warm hands.
    1. Be sure that hand seals are not very tight, verify that your hands being cold not due
    restriction in blood flow caused by tight seals.
    2. Use more thick and warm under-gloves.
    3. Think about electirc heated gloves and vest.
    IMHO.

    Is there a wet set of electric glove heaters? I found the Santi set for drysuits...

    My hands always get cold quick. Been a long challenge to keep them warm. Don't want to give up alot of flexibility if I don't have to.

    No. Salt, electrolytic corrosion, wet heaters soon corrode to death.
    All electric glove heaters that i know are for dry gloves.
    Often they are used with dry gloves which are installed not on the cuff rings,
