Santi Smart Seal System
Santi drysuits come as a standard with most innovative and comfortable Santi Smart Seals® System. Soft rings allow fast and easy seal exchange for any seal you like or have at hand. The Smart Seals System allows quick and very easy seals exchange, without the need of 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 a diver 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).

Once we receive your M-to-M order we will go through it here, then email you back all details to verify the information before proceeding with the order.
HOW TO MEASURE YOURSELF FOR SANTI SUITS

Never take your own measurements yourself – they should be taken by another person to make sure all measurements are tight and at correct levels.
- Stand straight and do not bend over while you are being measured.
- It is important to take the measurements only wearing thin clothing, close to the body.
- Follow the instruction point by point as the measurements taken incorrectly may influence the final fit of the drysuit or undersuit
- Use only a tailor measurement tape that has centimeters scale (only use metric with cm)
- Don’t leave any additional measurement allowance – measure as close to the body as possible.
- Use Santi MADE TO MEASURE FORM to make sure all measurements are completed.
- Following instruction leads you through the measurement proces also shown in our movie step by step.
