I have been out in my Pyro two times, both times I was wet from the waist down in my right side. I followed the instructions for checking for a leak (kudos to OR for a vey good instruction booklet BTW, other brands please take note) and found the right leg to be leaking along the seam, at about 5 different points between knee and hip.
Anyone else come across this? The video quality isn’t great, relevant action at 0:30 seconds onwards. You can clearly see about 5 points where air leaks make bubbles/froth in the the soapy water.
The suit is elsewhere, and I just realised while typing this that I did not check the tape inside the leg. The tape over the seam is 100% fine when I look at it. It’s perfectly aligned over the seam, is not loose anywhere, it looks fine. It’s prime wind season here, middle of winter, and I am skipping sessions now because getting soaked isn’t fun.
PPS Otherwise great suit, but adding more “overlap” (with velcro strap underfoot?) at the ankles would perhaps making it even better. And maybe a flap with velcro over the zipper? Less sand in the zip. Gul has both these design touches, and while it is an inferior suit otherwise when compared to the Pyro, they’re good ideas.
