Waterproof D10 Pro ISS review

The Waterproof D10 Pro ISS is the flagship drysuit model at Swedish scuba gear manufacturer Waterproof.
It's a true powerhouse that fulfills all requirements of a drysuit and then some.
They released a new version last year and it's better than ever before.

First Impression

In a hurry and looking for the gist of things? Here is our review in short. Keep reading for the entire version.

Waterproof has a long history of making great diving exposure suits and the Waterproof D10 Pro ISS is a great one.

They are extremely well made and being from a cold country, all Waterproof drysuits feature excellent thermal insulation.

This is the successor to the popular D9 and previous D10 models and it comes with some nice quality improvements.

I’m personally not the biggest fan of crushed neoprene drysuits (which Waterproof calls Hi-Densite neoprene) as I value the flexibility and lightweight of trilaminate ones more.

However, if you are a professional diver looking for a rugged yet flexible drysuit for underwater work, this is your suit.

It’s also perfect for recreational divers looking for a heavy-duty drysuit for their home lake or quarry where the water temperature stays relatively similar all year round.

The biggest drawback of the Waterproof D10 Pro ISS is the weight. The suit alone comes in at 5.8 kg (12 lbs) which is almost double the weight of popular trilaminate drysuits such as the Santi Elite Plus.

The price tag is quite hefty on this one, too, but shows off the premium quality of the materials used inside.

Quality comes at a price and I would find it justified…if the suit did come with gloves included! Or a p-valve…
