Do you need a tough drysuit for working long hours under harsh
conditions? BARE Sports and Alaska Mining & Diving Supply have worked together
to come up with a drysuit suitable for commercial suction dredging. These suits
are designed specifically for Alaskan conditions and to AMDS specifications. Our
neoprene suits feature 6mm high-density compression resistant neoprene, laminated with "DIAMOND-TUFF"
nylon. The suits are assembled using exclusive No-Stitch Technology (NST). This
technology features double glued seams with seam stripping both inside and out. Seam stripping is where
a one inch wide strip of neoprene tape is glued directly over the seam, adding
to the strength and integrity of the seal. This is usually an expensive option
on other brands of neoprene suits. These suits also feature 3mm neoprene
roll-under neck seal and 5mm roll-under wrist seals. These neoprene seals are
much less prone to tearing and rotting than latex seals, and the roll-under
design insures a better seal than normal "push-though" neoprene seals. The
roll-under cuffs not only put the smooth neoprene surface firmly against your
wrist for a superior seal, but feature an exterior smooth neoprene surface that
mates perfectly with neoprene gloves designed for use with drysuits. The neck
seal is further protected by a 2mm nylon/smoothskin warm collar with vented neck
What is the most important item needed by a man (sorry ladies)
who spends 6 hours or more in a rear entry drysuit? Our suits feature
a pre-installed relief zipper, usually
an option, but not in our opinion! Attached boots are also a must, and this suit features the
vulcanized exterior 4mm compressed density neoprene inner liner boot with a
double thick rubber grip sole. The rear entry back zipper has an internal
protective flap. The knees are reinforced with K-PADz knee protection.
Suspender tabs are pre-installed – ready to accept optional suspenders. Finally,
AMDS specified that the inflator and exhaust valves normally installed on
these suits for deep diving purposes be left out. While this means these
suits are only suitable for shallow use (15 feet or less) it also means they
have a couple less items to maintain and that we can offer these suits at a
lower price. Best of all, BARE suits come with a LIFETIME GUARANTEE!

AMDS drysuits by BARE are custom made to our specifications. As such, if a suit
is out-of-stock and must be ordered, it will take up to 3 weeks to build the
suit. Shipping time, depending on the method chosen, will add to this time. Plan
ahead! Note that if a suit is ordered, there are many other options that can be
If we do not have a suit in stock to fit you and there is a
rush, standard versions of our drysuit can be built within a week, plus
shipping. These suits would come with valves but without a relief zipper.
Unfortunately, this suit is only available in men's sizing. A
similar suit is available in women's sizes but with 4mm instead of 6mm neoprene.
