I am considering getting the boots changed on my drysuit (second hand, a size smaller than is comfortable), and I vaguely recall being told that you could get some of the material taken off the leg at the same time. The suits an inch or so longer than it should be, so doing so would be very desirable.

Is this possible or am I imagining things? It's a membrane suit by the way.

Thanks,
Ian

Hi Ian,

Yes it's possible. Otter did it for me. One thing to think about is the type of boots on the suit. The welly type tend to be large for their size. I normally take a size 8, but got size 7 boots and they are fine even with thick socks. The smaller boot also helps reduce air in the feet syndrome.

I had neoprene boots fitted to my dads membrane suit for exactly this reason.

Seaskin did it for about £60 plus postage, 5 day turnaround quoted, although i think it might have taken a bit longer than that as I also had a new autodump fitted and it's position changed. For some reason the old one was fitted on the elbow.

Very nice job they did.
