    Since it refers to connections of dry suits, I guess there won't be any diver in the Philippines (at least no non-professional diver) who uses a dry suit here.
    I make 100% of my dives without even any wetsuit.
    But I still have my dry suit at home since MAYBE I will dive once during my trips home in the colder waters of the North Sea.
    Anyway, mine is not of that Swedish brand (it's from Norway).
    But it looks like a serious risk.
    No wonder that all these dry suits are recalled.

    A Dry Suit in the Philippines would be like a cheap sauna!

    Cheap ???? Have you ever payed that much for a sauna ?
    A reasonable dry suit is easily costing over 1000 Euro/ 66000 Ph P.

    I wasn't talking about taking a sauna! I was talking about owning your own sauna!

    A dry suit in the U.S. can be had for $1,000 - $2,000. A sauna costs alot more than that!!

    Good to know. Tells you how much I know about diving. Anyway, I'm glad it's not a concern in the Phil.

    I guess you can also compare it to the sweat box of olden times that people use, to lose weight.
