    Santi options for Drysuits

    Hello there,

    I am on the market for a Santi Drysuit, either emotion or emotion+ and I'd like to have your view on a choices for some options.
    1) Rock Boots versus Flexsole?
    2) Inflation valve, Apeks or Si-Tech?
    3) Exhaust valve, Apeks low profile, Apes high profile or Si-Tech?

    Thanks for sharing your view on these 3 items.

    Yvan

    I own an Espace and an Emotion, both with Flexsole.
    Flexsole are are very well done, comfortable and durable.
    Rock boots are useful only if you nust walk alot going diving (on rock or rough surfaces). Only pro is you can change if broken, but my Flexsoles, after five years, are as new.
    Absolutely Apeks inflation, and Apeks high profile for exhaust (better discharge).

    Good point on the walk. That happens quit often to me. I think I will have to go for the Rock-Boots.

    Apeks and high profile - it's better at dumping gas than the Sitech and it keeps tight when you're squeezed unlike the apeks lowprofile. It is also very easy to take apart and clean/service

    Flexsoles - the rock boot kills your fin control and they are just fine walking with in rocky terrain.
