You can choose a PackSuit in stock under "configuration' with set options (size/color/features). If you want a specific selection (production on demand, no exchange), processing time will be about 4-6 weeks at the moment.
This is the Anfibio Packsuit with an alternative material. It features the same weight, same durability, same waterproofness - for less breathablity. However with an overall lower price.
It is sturdy 210den nylon with an microporous PU coating, that actually adheres less water, so it is really quick drying. Due to its limited breathability it is a suit recommended for boating only.
Construction, design/cut and gimmick free features are otherwise in line with the original Packsuit.
Neck seal: latex or neoprene
This is instant comfort (neopren) vs bombproof seal (latex). Latex is 50g heavier and needs to be worn in*. It depends how much time one spends under water. Eskimo rollers and wet entriests go latex. Casual boater go neopren. Smooth neopren ist still a very good seal on occasional dives, but it can't be guaranteed to 100% with strong movements under water. A lot of packrafters prefer Neopren. Though there are those who say a drysuit needs to be dry in any circumstances. Up to ones style!
* The neck seal is pretty tight in order to assure waterproofness for slim necks as well. Please try before real use in the field and stretch adequately, if needed (use a 10l busket or beachball over night). You can also cut the size.
Feet: latex cuffs or dry socks
Latex cuffs are already included in the basic price of a suit. They close tightly at the ankle, leaving the feet free. The cuffs may restrict the blood supply, which can lead to cold feet in some cases. Extra latex socks or neoprene socks can be worn if needed. Latex cuffs are more appropriate for longer walks.
Dry socks are waterproof footies made of latex or made of fabric and attached directly to the suit. The entire suit is easier to put on because the foot does not have to be forced through a tight cuff. The biggest advantage is that the feet stay dry while wading and swimming. To keep the feet warm, you should put thick socks underneath.
Latex dry socks are quite sturdy and flexible, so they fit the foot well. Fabric dry socks are a little more delicate, but breathable. To protect the booties (and the feet), you should wear shoes. The choice of footwear can range from sandals to sturdy (hiking) shoes, depending on the planned use.
Our recommendation is latex dry socks. Therefore, these are included with most of our pre-configured suits.
*Latex cuffs/dry socks are wearable items. UV light, sunscreen and mechanical stress can reduce the life span. However, they can be easily replaced. Replacement is also available as a service
. For maintenance we recommend Gear Aid 'Revivex'
Optional Fly zipper (P-zip)
An additional waterproof fly zipper (P-zip) is also a question of comfort, especially on long days. On the other hand, undressing is not a big deal also.

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 (60€ extra per measure, max. 180€)
IMPORTANT - rule of thumb for checking the measures:
measure 1 + measure 2 + 25cm = measure 7 (± 2cm)
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.
