Biggins, you should get in touch with your local Ocean Rodeo Dealer to get that suit off to us for an inspection and a repair if necissary. Your suit should not be leaking!biggins wrote:Mine leaks through the cuffs on the legs and arms!!! REAL pain. I have NOT tried it out in cold water yet as I'm too scared since it leaked in warmish water.
Viktor is on the right track here. The seals will actually "relax" over time a bit so helping to speed this process up initially is a good idea. Stretching the neck seal over a pot or pan and the wrists and ankles over a large pop bottle works well. Leave it for 24-48 hours. If you do need to cut the seal do so with your best scissors. Turn the seal inside out and cut one ring at a time. Be sure that the finish to your cut is clean with no knicks to start a tear from. Test the fit after each cut to see if it works. The rings look like a small change but it does make a difference! Your seals should all be "snap" tight but not uncomfortable!viktor wrote:In my opinion, do NOT cut it. The reason I say this is that the seal will become shorter and might leak. Put a pan or something in the neckseal and let it strech over night. Strech it just a little at each time since if it gets too streched...werll you figure it out.Che wrote:Hi guys I tried OR Pyro and found that rubber collar was very tight. What then to do about it.
Chris.. the zipper on the pro extends up to your shoulders .. right .. when you do a no wip rotation and turn your face .. dose your cheek ever hit the zipper? I herd this once from a friend .. was the guy full of it?cglazier wrote:I am riding with the Pyro Pro which has a zipper across the front of your chest. It is nice and comfortable and I cannot imagine how anyone could scratch their face on the zipper.
Having said that, it is not really much nicer than the standard Pyro which has the zipper on the back ..so it may not be worth the extra money if you are on a budget. In fact a lot of people like the Pyro lite around here which is their least expensive drysuit. It's up to you.
I don't want to start a flame war but the bit I don't get is why skypilot is making out like Vancouver is cold in winter. I was born and grew up in the city and it is generally like ... err ... damp and mild in winter. Now if we were talking lake Ontario, that would be another thing.skypilot wrote:
On a windy winter day in Vancouver, Canada it is like the Ocean Rodeo Army with a solid majority of the riders equipped with some form of the O.R suit.
Gotta agree with North-wind on that one. Vancouver ain't cold. But city folk also don't think coffee is coffee unless it costs $4 a cup. (Just teasing city people). Here is a pic. that gives some cred. to the OR pyro suit and how it is in the cold weather. This guy was out for a couple hours with no complaints of coldness.I don't want to start a flame war but the bit I don't get is why skypilot is making out like Vancouver is cold in winter.
