Dry Wear Maintenance & Storage

Avoid unnecessary repair or replacement costs and protect your investment with these tips for Drysuits, Drytops & Drypants.


  • Do not use liquid laundry detergent or harsh chemicals when washing
  • Use Revivex Pro Cleaner designed for cleaning technical outerwear
  • Hand washing and rinsing is recommended
  • Air dry. Do not put items in a dryer
  • If the item is used in seawater, rinse in fresh water after each use


  • Do not bend zippers during transport
  • Keep out of direct sun and hot vehicles
  • Store neatly or on a hanger in a cool dry location


  • Clean out obstructions and lubricate the zipper teeth. Never force the zipper to close as it could be damaged if closed over debris.
  • Use Zipper Cleaner and Lubricant
  • Never bend or crimp dry zippers
  • New gaskets take some time to form to your body. Speed up the process by placing an object slightly larger than your neck, wrist or ankle in the gasket and let it sit for 12-24 hours
  • Do not use chemicals such as insect repellent or sunscreen around the latex. These products are known to cause significant damage to the latex
  • Remove jewellery before you put on or take off the suit/top. 
  • Keep your gaskets lubricated protected  with Revivex UV Protectant 
  • Even with the best of care, the latex will break down over time. To avoid extra replacement costs, we recommend replacing old gaskets at home. Many online video tutorials are available to guide you through a gasket replacement and it is not a hard do-it-yourself project.
