Latex seals are the golden standard? I THINK NOT!!! That SHOULD BE silicone seals. Sure you need a ring system, but having that ring system is highly beneficial. If you’re at the dive site and donning your drysuit, an accidental tear in one of your latex seals ends your dive. There’s simply no way that you’re going to fix it in time for the dive. But with the ring system and silicon seals, changing a torn seal takes all of 5 minutes and you’re good to go. Just have a spare neck and wrist seal put in with your “Save your dive kit” along with other essentials you bring along in case of an emergency. I use a small fishing tackle box for all those spare items. It contains a complete set of “O” rings, a spare low and high pressure hose, a fin and mask strap, extra (charged) batteries for my light, a wrist and neck seal, and the tools necessary to perform any work needed while on a dive. I also put an emergency point of contact just Incase the unthinkable happens. This little kit has saved my dive more than once. There’s nothing like having a high pressure hose blow out while on a boat in transit to a Reef in the Florida Keys. Take the time, spend a few bucks, and switch to a ring system on your drysuit. The silicon seals are robust, very comfortable, and a cinch to swap out if and when needed. And there’s no trimming required. They’re a huge improvement over both the latex and neoprene seals. Silicon seals most definitely deserve to be the GOLD STANDARD. Latex, your day has passed.

Very useful summary. Thanks! My only feedback is to avoid repeating each “chapter’s” title because that gets annoying.
