This neoprene wetsuit is much thicker than most designs, making it a particularly good pick for kids who are dinghy sailing in cold conditions - the seams are glued and stitched too for extra protection against water getting in. The knees are thicker still, but loaded with stretch so every movement is easy.
  • Good resistance to abrasion
  • Pull tab on the zip for easy on/off
  • Thick and warm, yet stretchy

Technical Information

The concept of thermal comfort using neoprene:

By trapping a thin layer of water around the body, a neoprene wetsuit works in two ways:
1. the water trapped inside the wetsuit gradually warms up
2. heat transfer from the body decreases.
The wetsuit and the thin covering of water form a layer of insulation.
Neoprene is a closed-cell elastomeric foam with trapped nitrogen bubbles that have insulating properties.

The DG500 dinghy/catamaran neoprene sailing wetsuit is designed for cool and cold weather:

The Tribord DG500 neoprene wetsuit is made of 100% neoprene (thickness: 3 Mm) to guarantee good thermal comfort.
All seams are sewn together with strong thread suited to this particular type of fabric and are glued to prevent water getting through the seams.
A strip of neoprene is sewn under the zip to reduce the cooling effects of any water that gets through it.
In moderate to strong wind and cold weather, combine with the Tribord S500 smock.

Freedom of movement of the DG500 dinghy/catamaran neoprene wetsuit:

The Tribord DG500 dinghy/catamaran neoprene wetsuit has a cut and materials designed to make sailing manoeuvres and changing positions much easier.
The arms and chest piece consist of a different piece of fabric to make manoeuvres and movements much easier.
The legs, buttocks and knees are also separate pieces to make sitting, crouching and changing sides in the boat much easier.
All the seams are stretch seams.

Neoprene reinforcements on the DG500 wetsuit on the knees, buttocks and thighs:

It is reinforced on and below the knees and on the seat and thighs. The thickness is 7mm on the knees for added comfort.
The additional fabric works in two ways:
- to reduce the wear and tear of the neoprene in areas that are the most exposed to friction on the boat (deck fittings, rubbing strake, carpet, etc., depending on the craft)
- to reduce the discomfort of this friction on the knees, seat and thighs for the user wearing the suit and moving around on the boat

Construction of the neck of the DG500 dinghy/catamaran neoprene wetsuit:

The neck finish and height has been developed to limit the sensation of discomfort from the neoprene and irritation on even the most sensitive skin.
However, not everyone's skin reacts in the same way: in this case, we recommend that you wear a top under the wetsuit to reduce sensitive rubbing and chafing.
