competitor comparison


All aquata suits are pressure-tested in a water basin. No air bubbles are allowed to arise from the suit since existing tiny leaks may grow over the lifetime of the suit. Our test-systems guarantee 100% waterproof suits - even after a long storage time.

So-called low-budget suits are welded or glued and sewn but often not tested afterwards. This is because SOLAS allows minimal water entry. By cost reasons these manufacturers allow and accept small leakages, as testing and repairing would be too expensive. We tested some of these suits with disastrous results of leakages even though they are certified according to SOLAS.
