Level Six Exposes Counterfeit Drysuit Ring

-

- Advertisment -

In the ultimate unboxing video, Level Six president Stig Larsson purchased a counterfeit Level Six dry suit from Amazon — from a brand that was copying their images and designs — and puts it through a detailed analysis. The brand also did a pressure test at the end of the video to test the waterproofness of the seam tape.

Is your Level Six Dry Suit the real deal?

Check it out and draw your own conclusions!

Here are some of the brand’s key takeaways, also available on their website:

// Less than half the quality of our Dry Suit. Not worth the $560 spent on Amazon (with shipping and tax) for that price you could buy a 5 year old used emperor and it would still be a better suit.

// Inferior latex gasket, that may only last a couple of uses

// Double tunnel is not long enough to work or create a seal around the tunnel of a spray skirt

// Waist adjustment system that doesn’t work

// Bulky neoprene socks will not fit any river boot

// Questionable quality waterproof zipper. Stig would not trust his life with a waterproof zipper that is not YKK or TIZIP. If your suit fills with water during a swim in whitewater, “it will probably be your last day”

// Not worth taking the risk to save a few hundred dollars

// When you buy Level Six you are supporting years of hard work that has gone into designed a drysuit and great causes that give back to the kayak community and watershed conservation.

// Support the community that supports you!
