Ten test divers were able to climb into our Trilam Pro test suits, with 80 percent of them reporting a “Good Fit.” The Trilam Pro proved to be lightweight and pliable, and at the same time provided a decent level of ruggedness—the large K-Padz kneepads did a good job of protecting the lower legs while divers were crawling around on the bottom. However, with this suit the big selling point among testers was its superior comfort in and out of the water and its range of motion. This is due in part to the suit’s T-Zip zipper that’s super flexy so it doesn’t inhibit shoulder movement. It also zips and upzips extremely easy. The Trilam Pro’s wrist seals are of the bottleneck-shaped variety. They’re made of heavy-duty latex which makes them a bit harder to get on and off but resists tearing. When it came to the positioning of the exhaust valve testers were divided: some felt it was well-positioned, others felt it needed to be a bit higher and more forward to make it easier to bleed air. On the other hand, everybody liked the attached vulcanized rubber boots; testers found them to be well-shaped, they provided good foot support, and the flexible uppers didn’t inhibit ankle movement. The suit comes with built-in suspender tabs, but only the size-large test suit had the optional suspenders. Male divers loved them, female divers wanted them.
The test team really liked the features and the overall feel of the Trilam Pro. It racked up the most points for overall favorite drysuit in this year’s shootout, earning it the Testers Choice. On a side note, test divers also liked the SB System Mid-Layer two-piece undergarments Bare sent along with the suits. Not only were they comfortable as stand-alone garments, but when teamed with the Trilam Pro suit they created a near-perfect drysuit thermal system.
