Santi Heated Vest Santi Heated Vest

The Santi Heated Vest is designed to be worn between a thin base layer and undersuit. This configuration allows most of the generated heat to be passed directly to the diver’s body and not to the thick undersuit.

The trunk is one of the most important part of diver’s body. The lungs and the heart sit in it. When we feel cold, the heart works faster and the lungs constrict, which significantly affects the quality and safety of diving.

The Santi Heated Vest is perfect for divers who need more insulation than can be provided by 'passive' undersuits. The Santi Heating Vest actually actively helps to keep you warm, it is not designed to warm you up but to limit the rate at which you become cold. As such the heating vest does not feel 'hot' but it's effects can be felt.

Santi Heated VestLimited to a maximum working temperature of 40oC chances of burns from the vest are highly unlikely. At 60 watts of power the vest requires a battery pack located outside of the suit, a 10 amp hour battery will last for around 1.5-2 hours, while a 20a/hr battery will last 3-4 hours.

The Santi Heated Vest is made from 200gr thinsulate to provide you with insulation even if the vest in not plugged in. The vest is firmly fitted with elastic in the sides and an elasticated velcro crotch straps to keep the vest exactly in position. The vest is already fitted with a terminated cable but batteries and a through-suit connector must be purchased separately.

To operate the Santi Heated Vest following can be purchased separately:

Santi Drysuit ConnectorSanti Drysuit Connector - Uses existing drysuit inlet valve

Santi Drysuit Connector connects your Santi Heated Vest, Gloves or Undersuit to the battery using your existing drysuit inflation valve (Apeks or SiTech).

E/O cord connector passes through a standard suit inflation valve and provides power connection from the external battery to a heated product under the drysuit.

  • Works with power supply no higher than 12V
  • Total length of the cables including 55cm
  • Height without the valve - 19 mm
  • Available with "Apeks” or "Si-Tech" srew size
  • CE certified

Once your Sitech or Apeks drysuit inflator valve is removed, the SANTI Drysuit Connector is placed and secured in the drysuit valve hole. The cables run through the connector. The existing drysuit valve is then screwed on top of the connector. Select which (Sitech or Apeks) valve you currently have under options as the diameter will be different.

Santi ThermovalveSanti Thermovalve - All in one

he Santi Thermovalve connects Santi Heated Vest, Gloves or Undersuit to a external battery. It replaces the standard inflation valve. Unlike the Santi Drysuit Connector, it offers two functions in one device: drysuit inflation valve with an integrated connector for Santi heating systems.

The 90° moveable valve head provides convenient hose attachment which allows for optimal E/O cord and pressure hose settlement under the drysuit.

  • Includes E/O Blind Plug
  • Works with power supply no higher than 12V
  • Total length of the cables 55cm
  • Ergonomic design
  • Available with "Apeks” or "Si-Tech" srew size
  • CE certified

Dry suit inflator valves are user replaceable. Your current valve (Apeks or SiTech) will need to be removed. Basically it will have to be screwed out. Once the dry suit valve hole is apparent, it is advisable to clean the area on both sides before installing the new Thermovalve in its place. Screw the valve in and tighten - you're ready to go!
