What is so special about Otter?
Otter is a manufacturer specialised in the production of drysuits for sport diving and professional diving. It is the only manufacturer in the world that uses the Armour Skin material and that is what makes Otter so special. It is a super thick and mega robust material. So, the suits may not be the most flexible but they are indeed the strongest. A nice fact: at many first dives, for example the first dive under the Poles, the first suits used were made by Otter.
Everyone knows about the titanic, that sank in 1912. But many people have not heard about the Britannic. At the time the Britannic was built at the same period as the Titanic and sank in 1916 during the First World War. The Titanic is located hundreds of kilometres deep but the Britannic is ‘only’ at 120 metres deep. So, a location that is accessible for a diver with a good technical training. For a diving expedition to the Britannic by John Womack sr., a special suit was developed at the request of the divers who took part in this expedition: the Otter Britannic. The suit is still very popular for many trips. This is mainly due to the front closure which allows you to put on and take off the suit yourself. This suit is also extremely popular among many technical cave/wreck divers, because when you squeeze through narrow openings you do not want you suit to get damaged.
