How to Stretch a Latex Neck Gasket

Dry wear is the most efficient and versatile apparel for extending your boating season into the colder weather and water months. These pieces of life-saving gear can feel a little restricting, for some people, especially when the gasket is new.

A neck gasket that fits snugly enough to keep water from leaking in can be very uncomfortable, especially if wearing a drytop or drysuit is something new for you. Often, if you just persevere and put up with that choking sensation for a while you'll get used to it or the gasket will stretch on its own. If you're turning blue and wanting to send the damn thing back, it's time to take action.

In this video, Nick Newlan, NRS Wholesale, goes over the how-to of fixing the problem of a too-tight gasket.
