    DUI Neck seals.

    Just bought a second hand DUI and want to purchase a new neck seal (Zipseal)
    Any recommendations for a supplier?
    TIA.

    Most if not all non neoprene scuba dry suit neck and wrist seals are made from dipped latex.
    If so then the only supplier and manufacturer to all the various UK and overseas dry suit manufacturers is a company in sunny Bristol called:
    Precision Dippings Manufacturing Ltd

    https://www.precisiondippings.co.uk/latex-seals/

    If they give you any grief remind them of all the money the recreational dry suit companies owe them.
    While your a cash buyer. Failing that a free sample would do nicely if your nice and slim and not an XXXL 300lb gorilla needing
    half a rain forest to mould around your neck.

    Iain,
    DUI Zipseals have a ziplock fitting ring attached to them, they are not a standard neckseal. The original poster could remove the ring from his existing seal and fit it to a new seal but I suspect he just wants to buy something off the shelf.

    @steelemonkey, if you get asked if you want a Gen1 or Gen2 seal then you want the Gen1 version.

    *IF* you can get hold of an old neck zip seal, you can re-use the ring https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLx276jfHv0

    Alternatively buy new, take the hit and then do it cheaper next time round.

    Kind of defeats the idea of a quick change system.

    You have 2 rings at your disposal. An empty ring currently fitted to suit and another ring on the existing neck seal so you could give it a go. DIRDirect is where I got mine from I think

    Cheers. I have taken the old ring off and will fit the other seal today. It looks a bit old but will suffice for trying the suit out in the pool (when it re-opens!) and I wo't be too concerned if it fails.
    I will check out DIRDirect. Cheers.
