Technical Information

Details on thermal insulation

Neoprene 5 mm one-piece wet-type with back zip.
Seams taped using a GBS (glued and blind stitched) assembly.
Once a thin layer of water (that enters through the zip) gets trapped between your body and the wetsuit, the water stays warm as it is not replaced.
This thin layer of water keeps you warm.
Rolled, smooth edged cuffs, ankles and neck for maximum watertightness.
Weight: 1.790 kg (size L)

Construction of the zip and assembly of the wetsuit

The back zip fastener is designed so that two panels of smooth neoprene overlap to limit the inflow of water.
The wetsuit's GBS assembly (Glued and Blind Stitched) means that the seams are waterproof: the neoprene is bonded and then stitched for maximum resistance (the needle does not go all the way through the neoprene to prevent water getting through).
Snap hook on the upper thigh to attach accessories.

Freedom of movement / Easy to put on

One-piece with separate hood (not included). Stretch neoprene under the arms and extremity panels (very soft and stretchy neoprene) to adapt to fit different body shapes and suit various physiques.
The extremities of the legs and arms are also made of stretch neoprene for easier dressing.
No underarm seams for easier arm movements.

Resistance to rubbing

The wetsuit is equipped with reinforcements on the knees to increase resistance.
There are also prints on the friction zones linked to the buoyancy compensator (shoulders and lower back).
Also provides better body support and prevents the vest from slipping on the slides.
Wrist protection to prevent the dive computer from turning.

Thermal performance class

This scuba diving wetsuit provides thermal protection that has been tested by the independent INPP institute (Marseille, France) to validate its compliance with the current standard (EN 14225-1:2005).
CLASS C certified wetsuit:
A (+7°C/+12°C / +45°F/+54°F)
B (+10°C/+18°C / +50°F/+64°F)
C (+16°C/+24°C / +61°F/+75°F)
D (+22°C/+30°C / +72°F/+86°F).

Adjust the thickness, adjust your warmth!

When diving, cold is your worst enemy! Using the right thermal protection based on the water temperature, is essential. This concept was created to keep you from having to purchase different wetsuits for different diving conditions, with 5 pieces that can be combined with your wetsuit depending on the temperature.
In this way, you can complete your thermal insulation with a hood, a neoprene top, a top with a hood, a 1 mm under-shorty or a 5.5 mm over-shorty.

What is a wet diving wetsuit?

This is the most common type of diving wetsuit on the market. It is not designed to keep the water out, but to trap it, so that your body then warms it up, creating a thermal buffer between you and the outside. Made of neoprene - a rubber polymer filled with air bubbles - these wetsuits are available in thicknesses of 0.5 to 7 mm. Thanks to their suppleness and modularity, they constitute excellent diving wetsuits.

Tips on how to get into a wetsuit

Put your foot in a plastic bag, then slip your leg into your wetsuit. You entire foot comes out without snagging! To adjust, ask someone to blow into your sleeve from the wrist. The incoming air inflates the interior of the neoprene wetsuit, immediately separating it from your skin. You can then easily proceed with the final adjustments.

Tips on how to take care of your wetsuit

1) Soak the inside and the outside of the wetsuit in clean water after each session.
2) Clean with a bactericide solution.
3) Rinse thoroughly in clean water.
4) Dry on a wide hanger in a dark and well ventilated place. Caution: the sun will cause the colours of the textile parts of the wetsuit to fade and speeds up the ageing process of the neoprene. Zip fasteners can be cleaned with a toothbrush and lubricated with silicone grease.
