“When is a Freediving Suit Not a Freediving Suit?”
- Well, when you’re not Freediving in it of course! 

There are very few eureka moments when it comes to new dive gear, the moments when you try a new piece of kit for the first time and immediately wonder how you’ve gone on so long without it.  Using a Freediving suit for the first time is almost always one of those moments...
