USIA is an American corporation established in 1987 as a manufacturing firm mainly involved in defense contracting. In 1989 the first recreational diving suits were offered to a select few diving retailers due to an increased demand for quality recreational drysuits.
USIA headquarters and the manufacturing facility are located in a large compound in Oregon. The facility includes administrative offices, shipping, production area, testing and quality assurance department, research and development department, and training compound.
Our dry suits and thermal wear protective undergarments are the result of many years of extensive design and development. The USIA dive team has conducted hundreds of dives in every kind of environment and under extreme conditions. Almost every branch of the U.S. Military has purchased our dry suits, Most of these groups have re-ordered our products due to the versatility and durability of our drysuits, dry bags, undergarments.
