The FLX Extreme, which tied with Bare for Testers’ Choice, is the latest in a long line of innovations from DUI. A trilaminate front-entry with latex seals (latex or neoprene available on the Select series), the suit has excellent comfort and range of motion, thanks to a telescoping torso with suspenders and internal waist adjustment cord. ScubaLab testers were most impressed with the custom-like fit for a stock suit. (In those rare instances that the 14 men’s and 18 women’s sizes can’t fit a body size, the FLX Extreme can be made to order.) Apeks low-profile valves are standard on the suit, but Si-Tech is available as an option. Some testers reported a second effort needed to reach the shoulder valve. The suit comes with double layers of cordura over the knees and the option of the DUI RockBoot System or the Turbo Sole Boots with ankle straps.
A Testers’ Choice, the male and female FLX Extreme suits had excellent scores across all categories.
