Typhoon International, one of the world’s leading manufacturers in the diving and watersports market, has unveiled a limited edition dive suit to celebrate the company’s 70th anniversary. 

The Typhoon DS1, so-named in consideration of ‘Dive Suit One’, the first membrane dive suit that Typhoon produced back in 1947, features all the original logo designs. Despite its decades-long heritage the DS1 offers Typhoon’s TX6 fabric offering increased performance for all forms of diving.

James Tinkler, Head of Leisure Sales at Typhoon International, comments, “The DSI dive suit represents seven decades of quality UK design and manufacturing. This milestone year has given us all at Typhoon the opportunity to reflect on how far the brand has come and celebrate 70 years as a major player in the diving market place.”

Like all Typhoon dive suits the DS1 is built using single needle construction with double hand taped seams to ensure dryness and longevity along with HD latex neck and wrist seals. The adjustable warm neck collar is designed for increased comfort.

One high volume dive pocket is positioned on each thigh and contains multiple internal compartments, complete with slate pockets and internal D-ring.

The YKK dry zip offers easy entry and reduces weight and bulk and the suit comes complete with a choice between 5mm Neoprene sock or thermic boots. In addition valves, hose and changing mat bag are also included.

The DS1 is designed and manufactured in the same factory that designed the first suit in Redcar, UK and comes with a 3 year warranty.
