Wetsuit Maintenance

Factors to reduce the life expectancy of gear:

  • Long-term exposure to the sun
  • Falls
  • Saltwater/air, and other harsh environments can cause abrasion.

You must immediately repair damaged gear. You should have no doubts about your gear’s reliability.

Mystic is not responsible if any Mystic products are altered in any way. Always rinse and dry your textiles thoroughly after contact with saltwater.

Drysuit care


  • To maintain the T-zip, please use a tube of grease attached to the hangtag to keep it waterproof and smooth. Repeat this process every season.
  • Dry your suit on a hanger to allow the air to dry the suit’s inside and out.
  • Always rinse your suit after coming in contact with salt water. The salt can cause long-term damage to neoprene or latex.
  • To clean the suit, you can use mystic wetsuit cleaner
  • The suit will be damaged by UV radiation. The suit should not be dried in the sun.
  • To prevent them from drying out, you can apply talcum powder to the latex cuff.
  • If you have damaged parts, the suit can be easily repaired with Neoprene glue. It is important to make sure that it is waterproof once again.


  • Wearing a drysuit with a lifejacket is a good idea. A drysuit is more energetic than swimming in a wetsuit.
  • Seams can be damaged by large impacts from waves and jumps. Mystic will be able to determine the source of leakage but cannot guarantee any warranty.
  • This suit is not designed for diving.
  • Mystic cannot be held responsible for any inherent dangers/dangers or hazards that may arise from the sport of mystic products. Before you go on the water, please read the safety rules.
