Haven't field tested it yet, but the quality is obviously superior. I found this company after Kokatat decided they would no longer honor their lifetime warranty to repair or replace suit-wide seam failure (I have a pressure-test video). It is obviously sturdier and the fabric on the reinforced areas seems extremely durable. I would recommend this suit to anyone. I can't give an honest 5 stars because i haven't field-tested it yet.
Had to return original dry suit and get one size up but other than that I’m extremely pleased with my purchase!
We use this for canyoneering!
My wife and I bought the emperor dry suits for canyoneering (canyoning) here in Utah, which means swimming through ice cold slot canyons in the desert. My wife is a petite lady and gets quite cold even when it is 100 degrees F (37 degrees C), so having this dry suit allows her (and us) to do these watery slot canyons in comfort! Sure, wetsuits work, but being dry while being surrounded by water can't be beat. The abrasion-resistant material on the Emperor Dry suit is invaluable as well, as that's the main reason why we bought this model over others. They are easy to put on, easy to maneuver around, and when you pack them - they all fit nicely and tight in the backpack. We are excited to see what new improvements or future models that Level Six will innovate with, especially when it comes to Canyoneering. I tell anyone who does Canyoneering who is looking for a dry suit, to go with Level Six and specifically the Emperor dry suit. Here is a recent video (03-2021) of video through Das Boot slot canyon, which is near the famous "Subway" in Zion National Park where 1 to 2" ice thick was found. https://youtu.be/_We7G40z2vE
Very pleased so far, only had a couple initial test swims. I was very nervous about the sizing on this as I'm 6'2" but 150lbs with a size 12 foot (bought a large). This makes size shopping a nightmare for me. However, once the suit is burped it's not overly baggy on me. I do wish the gaskets on the large were still sized medium and trimmable (neck is trimmable, wrists are not) as I feel they're not quite as tight as I'd like them to be and the smallest amount of water got in through my wrist. I'll need some more testing to see if I need to send it in for smaller gaskets. I would love to see a medium-tall size come out in the future. I found a company that makes this size in wet suits and they've won me as a customer for life as theres often medium-stout options, but nobody makes a size for the tall&skinny folk. All in all, any of my complaints are due to my lanky proportions and this is a great product.
I am currently using it on the Petawawa, 1’celsius and it has been amazing, no complaints! Awesome product! Greatest improvement yet!
