3 mm full 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.
GBS (glued and blind stitched) assembly
The wetsuit's GBS assembly (Glued and Blind Stitched) means that the seams are waterproof: the neoprene is glued and then stitched for maximum durability (the needle does not go all the way through the neoprene to stop water getting through).
More comfort when carrying diving equipment.
A wetsuit specially developed for greater comfort when carrying a diving tank and wearing a buoyancy compensator.
The neoprene reinforcements are strategically positioned at the points of the BC exposed to pressure. 5mm more neoprene on the shoulders, the collar bones and the lumbar zone that acts like a cushion.
Snap hook on the upper thigh to attach accessories.
Reinforcements to reduce wear
The wetsuit has printed reinforcements on the knees to reduce wear. 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.
Freedom of movement/Easy to put on
One-piece with stretch neoprene side 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.
Why use a 3 mm wetsuit?
Even in warm waters, the body ends up cooling down (25 times faster than in the air). Wearing a thin 3 mm wetsuit will allow you to delay this drop in temperature so that you can enjoy your activity for longer. In addition, use a full wetsuit to fully protect you from UV rays and the underwater environment (coral, etc.).
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 suits.
Tips on how to get into a wetsuit?
Put your foot in a plastic bag. Then put your leg into your wetsuit. Your foot comes out completely and smoothly! 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 diving suit
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.
