Based on the worldâ€™s first Ultra Light D9 Drysuit Concept from Waterproof, the D9X Extended Breathable Drysuit features some technical improvements. As a leisure diver, you can always decide NOT to dive if environmental or weather issues are of concern or if you donâ€™t want to abuse or risk your equipment. But for some divers this is not always a choice. To meet their need for equipment that has extra reinforcement, Waterproof R&D redesigned the standard D9 suit and found a way to strengthen some areas without jeopardizing the most important feature of the suit: the Ultra-Light Concept.
The suit features newly developed stronger laminated material, same as we use in our EX2 suits, extra reinforcement from the elbows to the Zip-Off neoprene warm cuffs, which are designed to accept readily any dry glove system. Extra reinforced lower back and knees, lightweight pockets on both legs (featuring two cord loops on each), and delivered with XLITE Soft Boots. Yes, the D9X Extended Breathable Drysuit weighs slightly more than the exceptionally Ultra-Light standard D9 Drysuit but we know that most divers are willing to carry a little extra weight in exchange for added performance.
This suit was awarded both 2016 and 2017 Tauchen Award for Best Drysuit of the year.
Arm reinforcements â€“ Double layers of abraision resistance Cordura fabric.
