Item: 22532.02 | Product Description »

- NRS Women's Crux Drysuit
I recently purchased my first drysuit, a woman's crux. After much practice, I'm getting better putting it on but taking it off is a real struggle. I have arthritic fingers and wrists and would appreciate some suggestions. It is also a struggle getting the zipper started when putting it on. I recently started using a dry suit zipper lubricant but still need some suggestions. Is there a video about removing the crux? Thanks for your helpAsked on 4/29/2016 by Babs
A:Babs, here's a video on putting on the drysuit - http://www.nrs.com/learn/how-to-put-on-drysuit.asp - You're right on in using zipper lube. You can also made a zipper-pull extension with a loop of webbing, with something like a small carabiner on it. This will let you pull from a better angle. If you have more questions, give us a call, 800.635.5202.
Basically go slow, take the wrists off first, and don't pull on the suit
such that you are stressing the glued joints of the gaskets. Having someone
help you could also be what you need. Also, I used to use a tiny amount of
talc to help get the gaskets on. Hope that helps!Answered on 4/29/2016 by Anonymous
