COMPRESSED NEOPRENE DRYSUITS

Diving Concepts Pinnacle Drysuit
The Pinnacle 200TM and Pinnacle 400TM drysuits are made of 2mm and 4mm compressed neoprene and are the height of drysuit technology and design. The Pinnacle Series drysuits offer the streamlined fit and stretch approaching that of a wetsuit with the comfort and warmth of a drysuit. Similar to a thermostat you in your home, you can vary the type of insulation you wear to keep you warm and comfortable depending on the water temperature. The flexibility, durability and warmth of the Pinnacle 200 and 400 make these drysuits the distinct choice of many divers.

The Pinnacle 200 and 400 compressed neoprene drysuits are of the highest quality because we develop them from the highest grade of basic neoprene material available - Rubatex G-231 nitrogen gas blown neoprene. The seams on the Pinnacle Series drysuits are triple-glued, cup-stitched and polymer sealed to protect their integrity and thus keep you drysuit dry for many years to come.

Both Pinnacle Series drysuits are very durable and offer a streamlined fit. The Pinnacle 200 drysuit offers greater flexibility as compared to the Pinnacle 400 due to the thinner material. In warmer water conditions of 70-75F, the comfort, flexibility and minimal weight requirements of diving in the Pinnacle 200 without undersuit insulation offer an incredible dive experience that makes most divers abandon their wetsuits.  At colder, near-freezing water temperatures, the Pinnacle 200 is a great choice when changing your drysuit thermostat by wearing our warmer TPS Series undergarments.  The flexibility and temperature range of the Pinnacle 200 drysuit is truly outstanding.

The Pinnacle 400 drysuit offers many of the same benefits as the Pinnacle 200.   This is a slightly heavier and more buoyant drysuit with an even greater thermal capacity. The Pinnacle 400 is recommended over the Pinnacle 200 in the following situations: (1) when the diver is thermally challenged by either very long or multiple dives in extremely cold water (<40F), (2) the diver prefers to wear a thin undersuit or (3) the diver is very small and is extremely cold due to heat loss and doesn't mind the extra bulk.
