I once went to bed wearing a really tight speedo, with a cricket protector and a small drop of shampoo in it.

It felt really warm, slippery and quite frankly very nice, then I fell asleep. I woke up at 4am with intense itching. I washed off all the shampoo and collapsed back into bed for the rest of the night.

The next day by sack was weird, sort of shiney and coated. Turns out it was essentially dried out. After a couple of days the skin cracked, then peeled off to reveal new skin underneith.

I'm not sure if I the skin had dried out, or if I had chemical burns. Anyway, no lasting damage :)

I have often thought about trying a load of basic aloe vera in my wetsuit, it is just getting around to trying these things.

Between diving, swimming, and just having fun around the house, I've certainly spent more time in a wetsuit then out of one over the last week. Skin is certainly starting to get a bit tender from never getting to dry all the way

Of course......
Just spent all day diving, came home and put on my orca alpha wetsuit and will be wearing it until tomorrow when it will be time to switch back to diving wetsuit.

How did you manage to lock yourself in? Wondering if it's easy to do

The simplest ideas are always the best.

I would have never thought of just using a bit of chain. I was thinking about somehow gluing something over the zip that could be locked - a bit like a hasp on a garden shed.

This is how I do:


And this is what you can do:
(No way to escape from :P)

And, of course, the key is here:

This methode is for front zip wetties, like mine, but I think it can be applied to back zip wetsuits too

nah not rlly. only thing u could do is wrappin the zipper strip around ur neck n lock it that way. but i dont think thats so safe. so id stick to a non tightable chain.

That's what I did. I swear, I haven't done this in years!
