Technical information

Technical features

A 7 mm thick neoprene hood, with plush loop interior, that fits flat against the face with a preformed chin. The central grey band is made of stretch neoprene to best adapt to the shape of the head.
Air Expulse system: a system to evacuate air bubbles trapped in the hood. It features a snap hook to attach it to the right thigh of the suit.

GBS (glued and blind stitched) assembly

The seams of the hood are watertight, sewn with GBS stitching (Glued and Blind Stitched): the neoprene is glued first of all, then sewn for maximum strength (the sewing needle does not go completely through the neoprene in order to prevent water infiltration).

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 diving suits for different diving conditions, with five pieces that can be combined with your suit 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.

Tips on how to take care of your diving suit

1) Soak the inside and the outside of the diving suit 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 diving suit to fade and speeds up the ageing process of the neoprene.
Zips can be cleaned with a toothbrush and lubricated with silicone grease.
