    One of my favourite moments in diving was with a regular dive buddy who just couldn't use his pee valve. The dive he finally managed to, I honestly thought he was toxing or having a fit, until he stopped and reported (via hand signals) that he had finally managed to pee underwater!

    Just catching up on this new dry suit. Anyone any experience with the stock plastic zip that it comes with? Keep it or use the traditional brass one?

    Plastic zips are nice and easy to use but seem to last a couple of years of hard diving. Metal ones are less easy but last longer. Canít say I noticed the difference in the water. I changed the zip on my suit from metal to plastic then back to metal when the plastic one started leaking.

    If you look at the YKK website they are really designed and made for surface dry suits not diving dry suits.

    Thanks for that. Can I ask was that plastic zip you changed, the one on the O Three 90/90?
