If you own a DUI TLS350 drysuit manufactured from September 2009 through November 2009, here’s a heads up. DUI received 4 reports of unexplained damp spots inside the suit. Investigation identified inconsistencies in the butyl rubber layer of a single batch of TLS material produced by a single supplier. In some (but not all) cases, microscopic air bubbles in the butyl rubber layer may allow water to seep through the fabric. DUI used that material to make TLS350 drysuits from September 2009 through November 2009.
If you’ve been bothered by an unexplained damp spot, check the manufactured date inside your DUI suit to see if your suit might be affected. The manufactured date with the suit serial number can be found in two places:
Warning label inside the back of the drysuit
Serial number written on the bottom
of the waterproof zipper
