  • Let you explain by someone who has used a survival suit before how to wear it.
  • Remember to zip it entirely! Otherwise it might be more of a trap than a survival help
  • Enjoy your trip
  • When you are back: clean it with freshwater and hang it to dry. If there is a damage/leakage, please hang it separately to dry and inform the responsible person
