Smooth Operators Only.

When chaotic scenes and harsh conditions arise, the Operator Dry Suit is eager to be put to work. A ruggedized design with a modernized feature-set turns this dry suit into an invaluable tool in the rescuer’s arsenal.

The specialized nylon-outer shell fabric provides superior abrasion resistance and added durability, yet remains incredibly light-weight and breathable aiding in the rescuer's endurance. To enhance durability in high-wear areas like the knees, butt, hips, and booties, the suit features abrasion-resistant nylon for added protection where you need it most. Keeping fit and functionality top of mind, a performance inspired cut reduces bulk for a low profile-high performance feel.

The Operator Semi-Dry Suit was designed and developed with the direct feedback and testing of active rescue and military personnel.

**The Operator LX model contains latex gaskets at the neck and wrists for a reliable dry seal.**
