    Looks like it was built more to protect against sea monsters than high pressure water.

    Presuming “Carmagnolle” was the name of the designer, I checked to see if there was a corresponding US patent for this suit. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case. Such a document might have given more details about how this suit works.

    Like, as one very small example, what exactly is the purpose of that hook on the backside of the glove?
