Demo Days- Insko lake. At demo days we went a small group of 4 persons with intent to do a bunch of cool divers and testing out suits and diving Santi warmers. Journey began early morning- the later you come the more difficult to cram the equipment under test.
This time it turned out to be different- equipment was not too much, but also queues could not be seen.
For us mattered to quickly find bed in motel- succeeded with the help of the owner of the dive base "Insko," Mark Zasztowt. By the way leads nifty diving center as the conditions of the lake Insko. For us it was not just Demo Days, but also learning a new diving center, because usually we snorkeled at another location of this lake, in the center of the "Dive Devil". “Insko” diving center is definitely attractive and has a richer base, which translates into comfort divers. Online you will find professional service, a lecture hall, social room and a lot of diving equipment. Studded cylinder is smooth and lasts a short time, and at the same time free property.
Returning to the testing diving equipment Santi- as a first were tested a dry diving suits. For testing I E.Lite diving suit and E.motion, lining Heating Extreme BZ400. Heating not tested because the batteries were not charged. Too bad, because you could perform a comprehensive test. I must say that my lining 100 is quite different, of course, skipping the thickness, but I mean more convenience. In warmer Santi felt like they were tailored exactly to me, all lies and fits like a glove. Do not restrict movement despite its thickness. The water also wrote a medal, despite the fact that on the surface did not go stand because of the ambient temperature, the water felt only thermal comfort. Only longer exposure at a depth of about 25 to 30 feet caused the sensation of coolness, but without exaggeration. Calm could withstand without throwing jaw ;)
The suit which tested the first E.Lite it was a little too big and therefore very comfortable. Although made of very nice material (Rip Stop Nylon / Butylene / polyester) from the start causing problems. Maybe it's habit, but the lock on the front diagonally to me is not very convenient. Yes, you can unhook and fasten it alone, but just removing it is not so obvious, and I even seemed very uncomfortable. What about the fact that the castle can unhook the same as I cannot release easily hands. In addition, there seems to be especially convenient to make the flange which is fastened to the bottom of the body suit. This additional ventral fold rather may interfere. As to how we will crotch strap may find that it is very uncomfortable. The suit is equipped with pockets on both sides. Inside pockets are hooks to pin, for example. Torch back-up or other equipment. Pockets are otherwise comfortable with Velcro, which simplifies operations under water. The second of the suits E.motion according to me is not much different from E.Lite, the material from which it is made, Rip Stop, does not restrict movement, provided that the size of the suit is well-chosen. The selection of equipment is not a problem, Santi has prepared the appropriate table according to which the image dimensions we select your size suit. With warmers is probably less of a problem, they are sewn and looks good in them quite well. As I mentioned earlier are also comfortable.
The advantage, which I discussed just before buying my dry suit with other divers, according to me, is that the shoes are integrated with the suit. I'm currently using the suit with socks and shoes separately and I have to say that you forget to pack them. Tragedy is not because usually the dive sites can be rented shoes but if you were going on a long trip or in a place where there are no dive base is the lack of shoes can be a problem not to jump. But dry suit with integrated shoe is cumbersome, because you cannot overturn it on the left side. Here I also see the advantage of the lock on the front because basically we have the suit broken in half and easy to get to the legs and the upper part of the suit. This can be an advantage in terms of being drying and cleaning the inside of the suit.
