The PS330 Drysuit is an advanced suits, which they will be wearing once again, are designed to cope with extreme conditions and are used by voyagers on the oceans and in arctic conditions. The PS330's Hypercurve rear zip position makes it easy to put on and its fully ar ticulated arms and legs built into the breathable fabric means it is very comfortable to wear. Glide skin seals are designed for salt water use and there is an advanced mobile phone and VHF integration system in the collar pocket.
