Water Test


Garth Schmeck recently posted a really interesting article on the P&H Blog on how Kokatat manufactures and tests their dry suits. You can read about it here in more detail.

To test for leaks the new suit is sealed up, filled with water and put under pressure. Any leaks in the suit will show up with a small bubble of water.
