Just got a new O'neil Boost drysuit. Didn't come with any directions on how to care for it. Anyone have some tips on keeping it in perfect condition?

Thanks

You can buy lubricant for the neck,hand, and leg seals. Spray once or twice a year to keep rubber soft. When storing for the season put in some container that is a bit more air tight to keep the rubber from drying out.

Anyone had the seals replaced on these ? Mine have gotten small cracks in them over the years and it's now useless =-(

Yup, replacing one tonight, not too difficult, do a google search on it and there are tons of how to vids.

I keep mine inside in a plastic trash bag! I think the seals dry out quicker outside!

You want to treat the seals with a silicone spray when storing for the summer and winter. It will keep the seals from cracking. Here is a link to the one I use. It works great. http://www.amazon.com/Silicone-Spray.../dp/B001O78GY0

Don't spray it in the house because the mist will get on your floor and it will be like a ice skating rink.
