Hi guys, I was just wondering how long these suits of Latex can typically last for?
Also how well do they take to rain etc?
Anyone know?

a LAtex suit should last.. well for years.

i have some old old latex molds that are around 15 years old now. ans they are starting to kick the bucket.

UV light killed them. if you do get some water on them it wont kill it but do dry it off and such properly.

other than that if you keep it well it shuld last for at least 8-10 years till you see signs of it biting the dust.

I can't really say how long they last,but I've got a Morris '89 cowl I've had for over 15 yrs. and it still looks the same as when I bought it. The stuff I have now is much better quality.

Going by this example,I would say current latex Batsuits should last a VERY long time....at least more than 15yrs.,judging by the Morris cowl.

I had an old Morris cowl, too, and kept it like new by covering it on its pedestal with a plastic bag and treating it with Armor All® every 4 months or so. http://www.armorall.com/

Have since traded it and don't know now.
