Technical Information

Details on thermal insulation

3mm wet shorty 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.
Smooth neoprene on the extremities of the arms and thighs for increased contact with the skin and to prevent the water from circulating.

GBS (glued and blind stitched) assembly

The seams of the shorty are waterproof thanks to the GBS assembly (Glued and Blind Stitched): the neoprene is glued and then stitched for extra durability (the needle does not go all the way through the neoprene to stop water getting through).

Freedom of movement/Easy to put on

Shorty with stretch neoprene side panels (very soft and stretchy neoprene) to adapt to fit different body shapes and suit various physiques.
No underarm seams for easier arm movements.

Reinforcements to reduce wear

Prints on the friction zones linked to the buoyancy vest (shoulders and lower back). Also provides better body support and prevents the vest from slipping on the slides.

Why wear a shorty to go diving?

Even in warm waters, the body ends up cooling down (25 times faster than in the air). Use a thin 3 mm wetsuit that will allow you to delay this drop in temperature so that you can enjoy your activity for longer.
Pay attention to the unprotected parts of your body (shins, calves and arms), which are no longer protected against the environment (coral, jellyfish, etc.). Stay at a safe distance!

Thermal performance class

This scuba diving suit provides thermal protection that has been tested by the independent INPP institute (Marseille, France) in order to validate its compliance with the current standard (EN 14225-1:2017).
This wetsuit is certified for use in waters warmer than 25°C.

What is a diving wetsuit?

This is the most common type of diving suit 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 take care of your wetsuit

1) Soak the inside and the outside of the wetsuit in clean water after each session.
2) Clean with an antibacterial solution.
3) Rinse thoroughly in clean water.
4) Dry on a wide hanger in a dark and well ventilated place.
Pay attention to the sun, because it will cause the textile parts of the wetsuit to fade. Zips can be cleaned with a toothbrush and lubricated with a suitable lubricant, such as silicone grease.
