SANTI E.LITE - No compromise in your urge to explore
Made-to-measure version of the Santi E.Lite Drysuit is recommended for especially technical, cave, and wreck dives due to the exceptional durability of its fabric and additional protection of the most sensitive areas exposed to possible damage.
The unique quality of E.Lite is provided by Ripstop Nylon, exclusive to Santi, in addition to an ergonomic Y-cut shape and the greatest attention to detail.
A long front entry waterproof zipper is covered by an additional zip-fastened flap, new shape of Kevlar® knee pads also protects the front leg area.
Like any Santi Drysuit, E-Lite has two big, solid cargo pockets with bungee strings to mount the equipment. The right pocket has a useful additional zipper fastened pocket for double ender
Santi E.Lite drysuit is made of a unique Rip Stop Nylon/Butylen/Polyester material (535 g/m2). Rip-stop nylon is a lightweight, flexible fabric with inter-woven ripstop reinforcement threads in a crosshatch pattern, which provides superb durability and protection.

Santi Smart Seal System
Santi drysuits come as a standard with an innovative and comfortable Santi Smart Seals® System. Soft rings allow fast and easy seal exchange for any seal you like or have at hand without needing special tools.
The Smart Seals system replaces the standard wrist seals attachment in drysuit cuffs and works with any type of wrist seals available on the market – latex or silicone. There is no need for specially designed or dedicated seals, meaning you can carry spares and change a torn seal in the field.
The Smart Seals System also gives the possibility of adding dry gloves using Santi Smart Gloves Ring System (purchase separately).
Santi Neoprene Hood
The suit comes with Santi's Neoprene Hood with an innovative cut made from a very flexible neoprene. The outer shell is covered with jersey, while the inner coating is “smooth skin” type. These 6mm and 8mm hoods adapt perfectly to the shape of the head and are easy to put on and take off, even when wet.
Which Santi drysuit is best for me?
Deciding which Santi Drysuit would be best for you and what the differences are can be confusing. To help you, we have prepared SANTI DRYSUITS COMPARED 2023. Hopefully, this will help, but please CONTACT us if you have any question
How long does it take to get my suit?
We will place your suit order with Santi as soon as you have confirmed and are happy with all the details. We will go through this process as quickly as possible so the suit can be ordered without any delays on our part.
All Santi drysuits are made to order, and therefore estimated production times vary slightly depending on how busy Santi is or if the production period falls within their holiday times.
Santi estimates a 7 to 9 weeks production time for standard-size suits, with or without modifications. The production time is a couple of weeks longer for a completely made-to-measure suit.
Suits must then be checked, shipped from Poland and cleared through customs. This usually takes 1 to 2 weeks.
Unfortunately, due to the fluctuation in demand, neither we nor Santi can guarantee suits within a specific period.
Once we have your suit and we check it, we will email you to make sure you are not away and take receive delivery.
