A still shot from the video taken on the last dive yesterday at Lake Wazee. 1st time diving the US Divers UDS-1 triples and 1st time using my modified smooth rubber wetsuit. It took almost 10 hours to apply all the yellow striping to the wetsuit hood, beavertail jacket, and pants. Looks very cool though.

I thought it breathed really nice and I think SeaRat said that his UDS-1 system also breathed really well when he dove it in the past. I took his advice but I put 8 pounds of weight inside the housing on top instead of 6 pounds. I thought it swam good but was a little tippy since I wasn't able to get the straps as snug as they should have been. I had to guess on the weight I wore and I was just a little heavy. At the beginning of the dive it was perfect and then towards the end as the wetsuit compressed I seemed heavy. I think if I'd take out 4 pounds it might be great.
Is there a clear lake in Crystal Falls to dive? When is that event? I told SurfLung he could try it next time so he has first chance.
