    Herup Pickin´ nose... again.

    Just received my new Orca Free suite. According to the manufacture it is a hi-tech free diving suite (but let me let you in on this: It didn´t come for free) with many free dive specific features such as:
    Free Zip
    Free Seal
    Free Flow
    Free Wing Panel
    Free Fly Arm Panel
    Free Flex Back Panel
    And the unadvertised but free... CAMEL TOE...for men :hmm


    Best Friday regards

    PG13??? Well, maybe not. If so, please let me know so I can erase. Its FREE :D

    rofl I don't know what's worse - the camel toe or the disturbing, anatomically correct wetsuits that surface from time to time.

    Are my wetsuits anatomically incorrect? Inquiring minds want to know. :confused:

    Must get things right, you know . . . wouldn't want to surface without the correct suit! Could you post a link so I can find out how to fix the anatomy on my suits right away? :eek:

    No offense taken at all, BatRay! I just couldn't resist a bit of teasing. :eek: After all, like Uma Thurman said "There's just something about an anatomically correct rubber suit"

    I'm definitely thinking the anatomically correct option will result in a cleaner suit, even if it is a little NSW when not tucked in.

    One question to Simos and any other guys who have worn suits with this option, how bad is the leakage of cold water in with these things?

    Hmm I don't remember very well because it was literally the first few times I'd ever been freediving a few years ago and as you can imagine I had too many other things to worry about when I was in the water. :)

    For what it's worth, I don't remember any significant amount of water coming in the suit - I think 'tucking it in' behind the lower part of the top seals it to a decent extend.

    I am not too convinced it results in a much cleaner suit either though, unless you wear the suit naked (which I didn't). I didn't test that though as it was a borrowed suit so I was just bursting to go instead which spoiled half my session - I bought my own suit shortly after and made sure it was NOT anatomically correct lol

    I guess it depends on how bothered you are about these things but personally I think it's hardly worth getting such a suit. The only advantage is the fact that you can get out of the water after a couple of hours diving in cold water and still pretend there is something there lol

    In the interests of wedgie prevention I always go starkers in my suits. Learned that from the surfers.
