Storing Wet Dive Gear While Traveling

Sometimes we don’t always have time to dry out our dive gear when we travel, so we store it wet. This can cause a ton of problems. In this video Instructor Bryan Stafford shows you a little tip that he has been using for many years, when he has to store wet dive gear. This will not only prolong the life of your dive gear, but it will also help keep other gear dry and uncontaminated.

    Did I hear you correctly regarding the price of your dry suit? OMG. I had no idea dry suits cost that much. Is diving with a wetsuit an option for your spring dives? I live in Florida and have often done dives without any wetsuit in the springs. I didn't think it was that cold. I understand if you are doing multiple dives you want and need the protection but isn't a wetsuit a more affordable alternative? BTW, I appreciate the tip about traveling with wet gear. I'm going to give your idea a try myself. Thanks.

    Brian, I am new to diving, only been certified for about 3months,I have been on numerous dives since then, but I am still learning. I have a 5mm Henderson wet suit, and I do dock clean ups in my area. It is now coming up on the winter months. With this said, I need to ask you a question maybe you can answer. The question is this…. Is a 5mm suit enough exposure for year round diving in South Carolina? I can't seem to find the average water temps in this area, and even if I did I wouldn't know if I would be wearing enough protection.

    Good tip! I also add hanging moisture trap in my bags. Lots of times we dive Lake Superior and then it’s a ten hour drive back home after last dive. The towels work great and the trap is usually full when I pull it out. Really makes a difference during ice diving season. Safe diving keep up the great vids

    I'm surprised you're not at DEMA… I was shocked to learn that Mares is owned by Head. I was looking all over the DEMA map for Mares, only to discover that the booth belongs to HEAD. Interesting…

    What Drysuit do you have? Is it 3500 for the stock Drysuit or all accessories?

    Thanks! This is a great tip. I have been looking for a way to help dry my stuff because I have a sealed hard case also.

    Love these tips! Great Channel!!

    Very useful information.
    Deep inside warm water (wetsuit) boots tends to take DAYS to thoroughly dry. I have been looking for a boot dryer that has forced airflow. Haven't found any recommendations on one yet.
