Feedback: "Just something else I wanted to say. The anfibio drysuit is just outstanding for its weight and has kept me completely dry until now after many swims, no leakage at all through the neoprene neck gasket so far. So just wanted to say you've done a great job with the anfibio drysuit." Joery Truyen
 
General info
 
Drysuits are ideal for Packrafters, as normal (hiking) clothes can be worn underneath staying totally dry. No need for heavy wet suits anymore. The drysuit itself is simple and thus very compact. No gimmicks such as pockets, braces, extra layers or neck covers. As a result our drysuit is robust, portable and affordable.
 
The Anfibio PackSuit focuses on a drysuit's core necessities: waterproof seals at the wrist, neck and ankle in conjunction with a fabric composed of a polyester inner and a robust nylon shell sandwiching a microporous waterproof/breathable membrane. This creates a light and functional suit that is comfortable to wear in and out of the boat.
 
Use
 
The wide chest zipper allows for easy entry as well as half way closures to enable ventilation in calm water or on the shore. Wearing it rolled down to the chest or waist is good for walking short distances ('hiking mode'). The high position of the zipper also reduces failures from debris and dirt. And it does not interfere with sitting and paddling in the boat or wearing a PFD.
 
A drysuit is not only a factor of comfort, but is also a matter safety. Cold water is one of the biggest risks in boating. Moreover, many rivers are only navigable in cooler seasons. A drysuit allows you to extend your paddling season from early spring to late fall. In the north European winter a drysuit is an essential accessory. In all counries far north, like Scandinavia, Scotland, Icland and Canada you will enjoy the benefits year round.
 
Options
 
Neck seal: Latex or Neoprene (+20€)
 
Soft neoprene offers instant comfort while rubbery latex makes a bombproof seal. Latex is 50g heavier and needs to be worn in*. It depends how much time one spends under water. Eskimo rollers and swimmers go latex. Casual boater and tourer go neoprene. Smooth neopren is still a very good seal on brief immersions, but it can't be  guaranteed to 100% with extended swims. A lot of packrafters prefer Neoprene, but some say a drysuit needs to be dry in all circumstances. The choice is yours! 
 
* The neck seal comes tight in order to ensure waterproofness for slim necks. Try on for size before use in the field to allow the latex to stretch, if needed. To pre-stretch use a 10-litre bucket or beachball overnight. You can also trim the cone-shaped seal aperture to increase the diametre. Make sure you trim in small, 1-cm increments.
 
Latex cuffs or enclosed socks
 
Enclosed socks (latex or fabric) enable dry feet in the water and make dressing easier (no tight ankle cuffs), but for walking they're not as durable. For packrafting a flexible combination would be latex cuffs with extra socks such as Megalite neoprene or Latexfeet. Enclosed fabric socks are breathable and lighter, but are less durable than from latex. 
 
*UV-light, suncream and mechanical stress will cause latex seals to wear out over time, but the seals can easily be exchanged (also available as a service). For care we recommend McNett UVtech
 
Fly zipper (P-zip)
 
While undressing is not such a big deal, the provision of a waterproof fly zipper (P-zip) greatly adds to convenience for men, especially on long, cold days.

All dimensions in cm.

If you are not quite sure about your size, use our helpful sizing guide to measure yourself in detail and send the specs via order comment. We will then select the appropriate size and make it for you. We also offer custom/tailoring according to your personal specs upon request at an extra cost (50€ extra per measure, max. 150€). 

IMPORTANT - rule of thumb for checking the measures:
measure 1 + measure 2 + 25cm = measure 7 (± 2cm)

EXAMPLE
measure 1 = 63cm
measure 2 = 93cm
measure 7 = 180cm

63cm + 93cm + 25cm = 181cm (180cm + 1cm)

The ascertained reference value is 1cm above measure 7. So the ascertained measures are consistent.
