The Argonaut 2.0 drysuit uses the award winning BIOMAP® system to create a bespoke pattern unique to the diver.
At the heart of the pattern development was the quest for improved mobility, stronger construction, greater streamlining, easier gas management, lighter weight and easier donning and doffing – but most importantly, the introduction of an improved women’s pattern, that fits beautifully.
The system allows complete control over suit design and specification. The result is more than just ‘made to measure’, it is a bespoke suit built to the exact requirements of the customer.
Options and Extras include:
- Neoprene Neck and Wrist seals.
- 3mm, 5mm or 7mm Hood.
- Standard or Tech Dry Boots.
- Pockets on both or just one leg (none if you prefer).
- Low Profile Apex Valves.
- SiTech Trigon, Halcyon or Light Monkey p-valve.
“My [Argonaut] Stealth was the only suit that didn’t get torn to shreds over the three week trip. Man, the diving conditions in the Galapagos were really challenging for drysuits and the Stealth stood up well against the sharp rocks and strong currents.”
Pete Mesley, Professional Dive Expedition Leader, technical diver and Underwater Photographer.
“Underwater, the Argonaut is a dream to dive. There is little air migration, virtually no hindrance to movement, and the close fit allows you to slice through the water. [This is] a very capable drysuit.“
Scuba Lab (Sport Diver Magazine)
“I am so thrilled, the suit is just amazing! Probably as comfortable as my pyjamas, and they are really comfortable!”
Daniel Schmid, PADI Course Director.
