    No you will damage the neoprene. I have a 5/4/3 and I got home and in the shower and 2:30 its damp to almost dry now.

    Let it drip dry

    in the dryer on maximum heat

    just kidding, drip dry out of the sun or buy one of those fan hangers for faster results.
    or, if you have a hair dryer that has a cold setting, that will work pretty good too, just make sure its not blowing any hot air.

    or you can put a towel bar under a air vent in your bathroom and let the hot air coming in dry your suit plus let it drip dry. and then for booties and gloves i put hand towels in them. but for gloves you gotta do it just right so it doesnt stretch your gloves out so i only put 1 small towel in the gloves and not all of the towel is in the glove.

    yeah, i just stick mine in the dryer for a couple of minutes and it dries just like that. The labels are wrong about saying "don't use a dryer", it's always worked like a charm for me.

    using a dryer will encourage dry rot faster. it may not damage the suit short term, but long term it will ruin it.

    There's nothing better



    Works wonders with boots and gloves, and when they're done, just slide your sleeves over the pipes. Low temp, steady airflow. NO SMELL! Charlie from OC recommended it and it's a worker bee.

    Yep, works really, really well. However, 7 mm stuff does take a while. But definitely keeps the funk away.

    The HangAir is for real too. Does a 5/4 in about 4-5 hours.
