Latex seals?

You've got me thinkin' about getting my Yak wet!

If your dry suit seals are of the thin latex rubber type, stretching probably won't achieve the desired results...
If there are concentric rings around the opening (wrist/neck) you can carefully trim the opening with sharp scissors...a little at a time, until the opening is large enough not to restrict blood flow to your mellon but not so large as to let in the ocean...
A fine line between happy dry and unhappy wet...
After the suit is dry, for longest seal life, apply latex conditioner and dust with talc powder before storing in a dry/dark place.
