SANTI E.MOTION+ – Comfortable like E.Motion but durable like E.Lite drysuit

Santi E.Motion+ drysuit design is based on the two flagship models: Santi E.Motion and Santi E.Lite drysuit, combining the greatest advantages of the cut and fabrics to provide maximum protection at critical places exposed to possible damage and best diving ergonomics.

As in any of Santi drysuits, E.Motion Plus comes with two big and solid cargo pockets with bungee strings to mount the equipment. Both pockets have a useful additional zipper fastened pocket for double ender.

A special cut of the crotch pad allows for comfortable leg movements. The E.Motion Plus suit is equipped with a YKK Aquaseal plastic zipper which is very durable but also light and flexible. It is highly resistant to dirt and needs only minimal care in the docking area.

Two different materials

Durable E.Lite material is used in critical areas, whereas the lightweight material of E.Motion provides flexibility for the top and front part of the suit. The result is a modern drysuit with a high degree of comfort and protection where necessary without compromising mobility.

The top part of the drysuit and the top front of the legs are made of flexible E.Motion fabric (Ripstop Nylon/Butylene 235g/m2).

Elbows, belly, lower back area, crotch pad, back of legs and lower part of front legs are made of E.Lite fabric (Rip Stop Nylon/Butylen/Poliester 535g/m2)

Santi Smart Seal System

Santi drysuits come as a standard with an innovative and comfortable Santi Smart Seals® System. Soft rings allow fast and easy seal exchange for any seal you like or have at hand without needing special tools.

The Smart Seals system replaces the standard wrist seals attachment in drysuit cuffs and works with any type of wrist seals available on the market – latex or silicone. There is no need for specially designed or dedicated seals, meaning you can carry spares and change a torn seal in the field.

The Smart Seals System also gives the possibility of adding dry gloves using Santi Smart Gloves Ring System (purchase separately).

Front Zip Direction

For the Santi E.Motion+ Drysuit, it is possible to have the front zip in two different directions. The choice is yours: traditional Left to Right or if you prefer Right to Left.

Santi Neoprene Hood

The suit comes with Santi’s Neoprene Hood with an innovative cut made from a very flexible neoprene. The outer shell is covered with jersey, while the inner coating is “smooth skin” type. These 6mm and 8mm hoods adapt perfectly to the shape of the head and are easy to put on and take off, even when wet.

FREE “Made to Fit” service

Very few divers require a totally made-to-measure suit due to the wide range of standard sizes available from Santi Diving. With this in mind, Santi offers a free-of-charge Made-to-Fit service to any standard Santi suits ordered, sculpting standard suits to a divers’ measurements.

With your suit order, you can request up to 4 changes (ranging from 2 to 5 cm) to any of the standard size measurements listed under the chest, inner arm, biceps, forearm, waist, hips, inner leg, thigh, calf or body trunk on the Santi size chart.

If you would require more than 4 changes to make your suit perfect, you can add two more changes for a small additional charge.

Which Santi drysuit is best for me?

Deciding which Santi Drysuit would be best for you and what the differences are can be confusing. To help you, we have prepared SANTI DRYSUITS COMPARED 2023. Hopefully, this will help, but please CONTACT us if you have any question

How long does it take to get my suit?

We will place your suit order with Santi as soon as you have confirmed and are happy with all the details. We will go through this process as quickly as possible so the suit can be ordered without any delays on our part.

All Santi drysuits are made to order, and therefore estimated production times vary slightly depending on how busy Santi is or if the production period falls within their holiday times.

Santi estimates a 7 to 9 weeks production time for standard-size suits, with or without modifications. The production time is a couple of weeks longer for a completely made-to-measure suit.

Suits must then be checked, shipped from Poland and cleared through customs. This usually takes 1 to 2 weeks.

Unfortunately, due to the fluctuation in demand, neither we nor Santi can guarantee suits within a specific period.

Once we have your suit and we check it, we will email you to make sure you are not away and take receive delivery.

Size Chart

Measuring Guide


Carefully watch SANTI’s “Instructions for Self-measuring” video below. The video shows all measurements for Made-to-Measure suits.


Download the Santi MADE TO MEASURE FORM. Use only a taylor’s tape measure that has a centimeter scale (only use metric with cm).

Never take your own measurements yourself! Measurements should be taken by another person to make sure all measurements are taken tight up to the body and at correct placement for a specific measurement.

It is important that you stand straight, look forward and do not bend over while you are being measured. It is equally important to take the measurements only while wearing thin clothing, close to the body. Don’t leave any additional measurement allowance.

HEAD – approximately 1cm above the eyebrows to choose the correct hood size.
NECK – above the t-shirt line, under the Adam’s apple and the end of the neck.
BODY TRUNK – hold one end of the tape on the central point of the neck end and lead the tape across the crotch to the back. Mark the place where tape ends and measure the rest of the line to the spine neck bone. Make sure the tape is close to the body including all the curves.
SHOULDER TO SHOULDER – back shoulders length from one top arm bone to another.
OUTER ARM LENGHT – from the back neck spine bone to the wrist while the arm is fully stretched.
INSIDE ARM LENGHT – from armpit to wrist.
LADIES ONLY / SIDE TRUNK LENGHT – from the armpit to the waist line.
BICEPS – widest point on the loose arm. If you have a visibly athletic figure it is advised to measure the biceps also with bent elbow.
FOREARM – in the widest point.
WRIST – between the palm and the wrist bone.
CHEST – first measure the chest in rest and then after breathing in air. Normally the difference should be around 3-5cm. For ladies measure in the fullest point of the bust, preferably while wearing a bra.
WAIST – measure on the belly button level. Remember to measure the waist line in the widest point on the belly button line. To measure a female waistline correctly, use any kind of “marker belt” and fasten it around the waist line.
LADIES ONLY / BACK HEIGHT – centrally from the neck spine bone to the waist line marked with the belt.
LADIES ONLY / CHEST HEIGHT – from the soft neck area (where the neck ends) to the bust line in the fullest point.
HIPS – in the fullest point of the buttocks.
THIGH – widest point approximately 5cm from the crotch area.
CROTCH TO KNEE – from crotch to knee.
CROTCH TO FLOOR – hold one end of the measurement tape in a convenient place in the crotch and measure to the heel end.
CALF 1 – measure the calf in the widest point.
CALF 2 – height from the widest point of the calf to the floor.
CALF 3 – measure the calf 20cm from the floor.
ANKLE – measure the ankle on the ankle bone.
FOOT – place the tape on the floor and step on it to measure from end of heal to end of toes.
