Am I the only one wondering how its even possible for a human to swim in Antarctica for more than like 20 seconds?

dry suits.... keeps all the water out and they have an insulating undergarment that keeps you toasty

Those things are awesome, I dive once every few months and I'd kill for one of those. You can basically wear whatever the hell you want underneath it.

then after a few uses it freaking turns into a dampsuit if your lucky... if your not, it turns into a wetsuit

Not if you treat it properly.

yea, you might get a few more uses if you take care of it properly... but you gotta remember, this thing is spending hours in saltwater, going through constant pressure changes, going through constant temperature changes, expanding, contracting... it takes a toll on it especially along the seams and zippers (which, unfortunately is really expensive) but the plus side is that my wasp knife is ******* kickass and i get to bring it out whenever i go diving (although ive only used it once on anything life or death and a lot more watermelons i care to say)

That's why you rinse it once you are done diving, I have several people at the diving club who have been using their drysuit for a few years now.

i usually do.... but i only bring it out on special occasions now, i much prefer a wetsuit even though it limits my choices to tropical waters... but whatever, i work for delta and i could fly for practically free (to put it in perspective, i pay a little under $40 to fly to japan.... first class) so i get to indulge in as much tropical dives as i please

Well, shorty > drysuit any time of the day if the temperature allows it.

but cold-water dives are so pretty!!!!
User avatar #78 to #77 - sirrelevant (10/18/2013) [-]
Well, the only ''cold-water dives'' I've done are here in the Netherlands, and to be honest, they're quite muddy.

special suits and insulating cream that works a bit like a hot-hand.

then again, the last time I made an educated guess on a topic ive been wrong, so dont trust me, it could be sacrificial blood magic and astronauts for all I know.

nah that pretty well covers it

Ah, I suppose that makes sense. Must still be pretty ******* cold though.
