Technical information

Details on thermal insulation and reinforcement

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.
The wetsuit has printed reinforcements on the knees to reduce wear.

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).

Why use a 3 mm wetsuit?

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. 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 wetsuit

11) 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. 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. Zips can be cleaned with a toothbrush and lubricated with silicone grease.
