Our Santi Elite Plus review

Below you find everything you need to know about the Santi Elite Plus, its features, specs and what we like, and don't like about it.

Santi drysuits are the absolute creme de la creme of scuba diving drysuits and the Santi Elite Plus is one of the best trilaminate drysuits I’ve ever worn.

It’s just so well made, comfortable and durable that there is really nothing wrong with it. The Santi suits are well regarded in the industry and come with some super cool and well-thought-out features.

Last but not least, they look great and are easy to put on and off.

The Santi Elite Plus is well deserving of the rare 5-star review on our site as it simply ticks all the boxes for an amazing drysuit.

From the classic design, to the high-quality build, and the value of the materials, there is just nothing I can find to complain about.

Most of all, it stands out due to some clever design choices, such as not putting any seems in the arm pits to prevent stress breaking from moving your arms.

The same goes for the position of the dry zipper.

If you want the best of the best, the Santi Elite Plus is one of the drysuits you absolutely have to check out!
