Based on the world’s first Ultra Light D9 Drysuit Concept from Waterproof, the D9X Extended Breathable Drysuit features some technical improvements. As a leisure diver, you can always decide NOT to dive if environmental or weather issues are of concern or if you don’t want to abuse or risk your equipment. But for some divers this is not always a choice. To meet their need for equipment that has extra reinforcement, Waterproof R&D redesigned the standard D9 suit and found a way to strengthen some areas without jeopardizing the most important feature of the suit: the Ultra-Light Concept.
The suit features newly developed stronger laminated material, same as we use in our EX2 suits, extra reinforcement from the elbows to the Zip-Off neoprene warm cuffs, which are designed to accept readily any dry glove system. Extra reinforced lower back and knees, lightweight pockets on both legs (featuring two cord loops on each), and delivered with XLITE Soft Boots. Yes, the D9X Extended Breathable Drysuit weighs slightly more than the exceptionally Ultra-Light standard D9 Drysuit but we know that most divers are willing to carry a little extra weight in exchange for added performance.
This suit was awarded both 2016 and 2017 Tauchen Award for Best Drysuit of the year.

Our breathable drysuit fabric is highly waterproof due to the PU layer, but improper usage or storage could damage the PU layer and decrease the waterproof capability. It is very important that you rinse and clean breathable drysuits after each dive and let them dry completely both inside and outside. Please follow the care instructions below carefully to maintain the sufficient performance of your drysuit.
If dirt, salt, oil, or sweat gets on the fabric, rinse off immediately with fresh water. Drain off the water from the garment and dry completely both inside and outside in the shade.
Leaving the garment without rinsing off dirt for long periods may increase the deterioration of the PU layer, which may reduce the waterproof capability, or may cause the delamination of the PU layer.
Do not store the drysuit wet, as this may cause the delamination of the PU layer.
Do not wring or knead the drysuit, especially when it is wet, as this may cause the delamination of the PU layer.
Do not expose the drysuit to direct sunlight for long periods, as this may cause the delamination of the PU layer, and may also decrease the strength of the fabric.
Even if the garment gets extremely dirty, do not machine wash. Hand wash with laundry detergent, brush off the dirt and rinse thoroughly. If the detergent remains on the fabric, it may reduce the waterproof capability of the fabric, or may cause the delamination of the PU layer.
Wash and dry properly, both inside and outside. Do not leave the drysuit in a wet condition.
Do not store in hot and humid conditions (such as in a car, near a radiator or a stove).
Store away from direct sunlight.
Do not store with dirt or salt left on the drysuit.
Do not fold the drysuit forcibly or place under any heavy object.
