We bring you a comparison of SANTI drysuits to make it easier to choose what suits you best. Every SANTI drysuit is made to perfection with durability, diver safety and comfort in mind. All SANTI trimalimate drysuits have front entry zippers covered with protective flaps with a second zip as well as telescopic torsos. Eliminating the restrictions of traditional back entry suits, this combination allows great mobility regardless of equipment used or thickness of any undersuit. All SANTI drysuits also have internal suspenders with handy pockets, large cargo pockets on both legs, Apeks or SiTech valves, Flexsole Boots or neoprene socks (or boots depending on model) and come with inflator hose and protective travel bags.

The difference between SANTI drysuits isn’t about quality but the functionality of that suit for the purpose it is made for — reflecting on the material or material combinations used in production, the amount of comfort and flexibility (or reinforced areas) a specific suit offers, whether or not it comes with the SANTI SmartSeals® ring system and any additional components the suit price may include.

Notably a suit made out of a blend of different fabric to prioritise flexibility and durability in areas where each matters most as well as those that include the SmartSeals® ring system will be more expensive than a suit made out of a single type of fabric with standard neck seals.

With that said,  from the low-cost SANTI drysuit, the E.Space, which is recommended for intensive cave and wreck  diving as well as public safety work, to the top of the range E-Lite+ (Plus) that offers exceptional durability and mobility in parts of the suit where it matters most, all SANTI drysuits are a symbol of quality.

How long will it take to get my SANTI drysuit?

SANTI produces each dry suit individually whether it is a stock size or made-to-fit. Production generally takes between 6 to 8 weeks from placement of order although at times this can be quicker. Once we receive and process an order we are able to follow its progress online and give you an estimated delivery date when production begins.

Where do you ship to and from?

We ship SANTI drysuits, undersuits and heating systems world-wide with fast and secure courier delivery. While we hold a large stock of SANTI wear and heating systems, drysuits are made to order and manufactured in Poland. Once produced they arrive at our HQ and are inspected against the confirmed order before being re-packaged and dispatched to you. We dispatch within 24 hours after the suit arrives with us.

Stock size, made-to-fit or made-to-measure?

SANTI provides 16 sizes of male and 12 sizes of female standard suits that fit most of standard, tall or short body silhouettes. As a SANTI Premium Centre we will first try to fit you into a stock size SANTI suit which is the most cost-effective option even if some minor modifications may be needed. Fortunately the Made-to-Fit option allows for up to 4 changes to be made from 2cm to a maximum of 5cm to any stock size measurement free of charge. If, however, a stock size with minor modifications does not provide the ideal fit which suits you, we can measure you up for a made-to-measure suit for any SANTI model. SANTI made-to-measure suits are cut specifically taking into account up to 24 body measurement points.

What's the best fit - How do I measure myself?
Trilaminate dry suits with front zippers and telescopic torsos offer far greater flexibility and mobility compared to neoprene drysuits or standard drysuits with back-zips. When measuring up for your dry suit it’s worth taking into account that the suit needs to be comfortable without any hindrance to movement during a dive.  It should  enable completion of all  necessary movements of a divers arms and legs – specifically ensuring the legs move freely in vertical, horizontal position  and when knees are bent (i.e. entering a boat, exiting water etc.) Arms should be long enough not to restrict hands reaching the back/valves. With that said, the same suit  should not be too large either and avoid bulky legs. Finally, all these need to work with the thickest undersuit you will eventually be wearing…  Santi stock size table can be found in the SANTI Drysuit charts For Men and For Ladies.
Do I order online or in-store?

You can order in-store where we can measure you or online via DirDirect by using the sizing form with detailed instructions for measurement. Our SANTI fitting days at Underwater Explorers are Friday through Tuesday but please still call in advance to ensure a qualified member of staff is expecting you. A fitting session can take 1-2 hours, so allow yourself some time to spend with us.

Whether  you order online or we measure you up, we will not proceed with your order until every measurement and specification is clarified and confirmed. You will receive in writing exactly what the drysuit order consists of, including detailed sizing and/or modifications for your final approval before the order is processed for SANTI to start production.

What happens if/when I order online?

To order a SANTI drysuit online from us you use the product options windows to make your selections prior to checkout. Once you decide on the product options and check out you receive a confirmation that your order/payment has been received. We will then carefully go through the order and correspond with you on any extra information required while clarifying possible modifications. Once that stage is completed, usually within 24 hours, we will prepare an order confirmation stating all the details of your order to proceed and for SANTI to start production of your suit. * Please note: All measurements should be taken in cm / The person who takes the self-measurements takes full responsibility for their result and potential discrepancies. If you need assistance with measurements, feel free to contact us any day or drop in for a free SANTI fitting session Friday through Tuesday (including weekends/Bank Holidays).

How do I pay for my suit?

If you order online with your own measurements the payment in whole is taken in advance and processed through a secure payment gateway. If you come in store for a fitting session with us (see above), we will charge 50% of the total price once you approve the order with the rest payable on suit delivery. While we have no direct financing facilities, if you have a PayPal account you can use PayPal credit at checkout with 4 months interest free credit to spread the cost of your suit.

Can I return a drysuit after production?

As stated in our Returns Policy the statutory cooling off period does not apply to “any goods made to order, tailor-made or clearly personalised (including but not limited to drysuits, wetsuits, undersuits” as these are non-stock items obtained on special order. In the unlikely event there is any fault with your drysuit on arrival, this will obviously be addressed and corrected as fast as possible.

If there is a sizing issue:

  1. If we have measured you in store and processed the order according to those measurements, we will bear the cost of any post-production adjustments required.
  2. If you have ordered online and have a sizing issue with the drysuit delivered, we will arrange for the suit to be collected and returned to the manufacturer at cost you will bear and organise for the adjustments to be made before it is returned to you.

* Please bear in mind that suits need to be measured taking into account any thermal undersuit you will be using on your dives and the necessity of mobility especially in the knees and shoulder/elbows. A proper fitting dry suit should allow for knees to be bent without restriction when frog-kicking in horizontal  position and let a diver reach his/her valves for shutdowns with minimum effort.
