I remember my first dry suit.. It was a latex suit with no OPV, no power inflator, as a "kid" we tough it was enough for us to stay dry and be protected by the cold Mediterranean waters. I almost passed out, was white as an Aspirin and the squeezes marked by body for days. Since then I have tried almost all the Dry suit I could, Started with Spirotechnique Trilaminate, Poseidon 7mn Neoprene, Top Star Neoprene (famous suit in the French Cave diver community) Beuchat Trilaminate and Neoprene, Scubapro Trilaminate, Northern Diver (one of my best), DUI TLS 350, and then the SANTI E-space.
I am impressed by some nice feature of the suit, it is light streamline and well adjusted to my body, it is very well finished, the construction is unique, first the parts are joined together, then inside, they are glued by hand with a 1-1/4 inch wide tape. this process make the suit strong and durable with a 600gr/sqm cordura/Butylen/Polyester. two smart utility pockets with D-ring.
the suit has a 3 year limited warranty.
I think it will fit very well US and EU Tech divers.
Contact me for brochure or more explanations.

We have finished a CCR Trimix program in South Florida.
Two candidates from Brazil and two divers from France joined us for the dives. Anderson was working on his CCR trimix diver and Jose Mario Ventura was working on his CCR trimix Instructor. Jose is a new IANTD CCR trimix Instructor in Brazil.
we dove with RJ in Miami on the Ophelia, Dema Trader, we dove The Spiegel Grove in the Keys with Horizon divers, and we finished with Avid Divers who did as usual a superb work on the deep wrecks of the Hydroatlantic, The Lowrance, and the beautiful RBJ.
What a great week
Congratulation to our candidates for showing a great attitude respects of the procedure during the week.
