About four years ago it was time to buy a new drysuit. I went to the Birmingham Dive Show and was impressed by an all-Kevlar neoprene drysuit being shown. I have a pair of neoprene-Kevlar gloves used for wrecking which have lasted for years. I figured that and all-Kevlar drysuit would last a long time too. The manufacturer was an Italian company called Dive Systems. The drysuit was sold by a Dublin company called DiverTec, represented by Barry Law.
The drysuit is holding up well ... but unfortunately the zip has broken. I had hoped that it would last longer than this, but such is life!
Now I'm trying to get the zip repaired and I find that DiverTec no longer exist and I have no way of contacting Barry. Nor can I find any contact with the Italian company Dive Systems.
I could get a company like O-Three to carry out repair and fit a new front entry zip. They will charge Â£200 ... expensive, but I can live with this. The problem is that they want to cut out a 3 inch section on either side of the existing zip and fit a new panel containing the replacement zip. This panel will not be Kevlar-faced neoprene material and I think it will look like a mess.
Does anyone know how I can contact Barrie Law?
Does anyone know how to contact the Italian company Dive Systems?
Does anyone have any better/other suggestions?
I think that there were quite a number of the all-Kevlar drysuits sold in Ireland around 2005/2006. Does anyone else have one who can advise?
