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 5 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.
Zip fasteners can be cleaned with a toothbrush and lubricated with silicone grease
This scuba diving shorty 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)
Tips for storage and maintenance
Do not bleach
Do not tumble dry
Do not iron
Do not dry-clean
Dry your diving suit out of the sun and well clear of all sources of heat. Store your diving suit on a hanger to keep its shape and conserve the neoprene.
Restrictions on use
Not advised for swimming or wave sports.
TESTS AND WARRANTY
Designed and tested by our teams and our technical partner in Hendaye (France) to approve the thermal insulation.
Our technical partner: Planet Ocean (the PADI 5-star diving centre) based at the WaterSports Centre by DECATHLON in Hendaye - France. The centre uses SUBEA equipment throughout the year.
The team of instructors are rigorously involved in the development of our SUBEA diving products: from the design phase with the SUBEA team (product manager, designers and engineers), to the endurance tests with the help of the centre’s divers (from beginners to trainee instructors, all year round).
