Apollo Drysuit Custom Manufacturing

Fit is everything. It determines the comfort, drag and ease of swimming of the suit. Apollo employs an advanced computer-aided design system that utilises up to 32 measurements in making each suit from scratch for each individual customer. The computer is linked to an automatic drafting table printer, which prints out a pattern based on measurement data. This system cost $100,000, and today Apollo is on its third generation system, capable of drawing about 140 suits per day. Panels of material cut from the pattern are hand-glued, then blind-stitched, before being heat taped to ensure a long life of complete dryness. During these stages, a single technician works with a single suit to maintain quality and uniformity.

A custom fit has obvious benefits for divers with non-standard builds, but even for those who can wear off-the-rack suits, custom fitting can dramatically decrease drag in the water. There are no folds of material to catch water or to snag in a cave, wreck or other overhead environment. Anyone diving in a high-flow situation will readily notice and appreciate this point. A second advantage is in the wrist seals. Apollo’s computer program utilises both wrist and forearm measurements to create a more cylindrical as opposed to a conical shape, providing more surface area at the actual seal. This produces a significantly drier suit. Boot measurements are part of the custom fit. The soles are rugged, giving the diver plenty of support, even during difficult entries or exits. Integrated shin and knee pads provide protection, even under the most severe conditions.

Measuring For An Apollo Edge Drysuit

Please view/download the Apollo Drysuit Measuring Forms (PDF, 11 pages, 1.4 Mb) and use them to get the best fit possible.

The measuring form is designed to get the best possible fit.

The form is designed to allow some tolerance in the measurements, however the boot size is critical. If you choose a suit and the boot size is too small it will be uncomfortable. To ensure you get the correct boot size follow these simple foot measuring instructions.

Please ask somebody to measure your feet using a ruler in CM. If you do it yourself the measurement will probably be incorrect.

  1. The measurement should be taken with full weight on the feet.
  2. If measurement is not a whole centimetre, round UP to the next highest centimetre.
  3. If you wish to wear thick socks whilst diving, then add one extra centimetre to the measurement.
  4. Measure BOTH feet and use the measurement for largest foot.
