Kathy Summers (paddlDC) demonstrates the ultra light, highly breathable dry suit, SUPSKIN Diabolo Race Review in a very cold 36 degree DC. I was waiting for her to take the plunge, but props for going in as deep as she did.
The only thing I wonder about it dehydration and heat vs dryness, safety and warmth. There is a threshold where the threat of hypothermia rules. Kathy is in 36 air and 36 water, a very high possibility of hypothermia even with a quick fall and recovery.
Here’s Kathy’s Review:
