I bought my first cressi opencell freedivingsuit for some weeks ago and now i wonder, how i shall store it without damage it?


Having space is nice! If you don't it can be difficult. I like to lay my suits flat or draped over a soft large radius pole. Folding is the worst thing you can do it makes creases weakening the suits and crushing the cells. This goes without say but always store your suit dry.
Don't store it!

I'd recommend using it at least once a week . . . that way you can just drape it over a drying rack (keep one set up in your bathtub) and make the excuse that it's not yet dry enough to put in the closet . . . solves all those perplexing storage problems.

I always hang it up with big space around and I belive this is good!

Does anyone knows if the neoprene affects some way of low temperature?

I would like to store my suits (4 suits) colder (the garage) because my wife have no place for her clothes!:D
I will not move them before I know if it's OK in 5-10 degrees Celsius.:duh

I would really appreciate if someone has a good answer.
I store my suit on the sofa for the moment:)
I don't live with my girlfriend so she can not complain:D
Once a week i turn the suit so that it dont get creased.
The longjon has been hanging on a coathanger. i hope that is ok?


Sounds like the way I did things before I got married. Enjoy it whilst you can.
