diving equipment that protects the diver from excessive cold and trauma.

There are two kinds of diving suits. The waterproof suit made of rubberized fabric can be all one piece or come with detachable hood, gloves, and boots. The breathing tube from the diving apparatus is connected to its helmet. The water-permeable suit (wet suit) is composed of a tight-fitting shirt and hood of porous rubber and separate pants with attached stockings. There are many sizes and styles, depending on the diving apparatus used.
