I felt a bit strange applying coconut oil to my door, but whatever, plus it worked great! The stuff is antimocrobial, antiviral, and antifungal, so nothing will grow on it. It's also very hydrophobic, so it shouldn't immediately wash off in the water. One possible issue could be with it melting. The melting point is quite low (like 76F), so if you have it in the car, or the sun warms it up, it could simply melt off, possibly getting messy and impacting the suit's breathability.

My first drysuit (custom Kokatat Icon) should arrive next week. I'll probably be going with Zip Tech just to be safe, but if you give the Coconut Oil a shot and it works well, let us know.
