Product feature
  1. Details on thermal insulation
    The wetsuit is made up of 7.5mm stretch panels with production tolerance. Neoprene distribution: Thermospan on the bust and back + Plush (nylon loops) on the shoulders to increase the feeling of warmth Supratex on the knees for increased resistance to friction Stretch on the rest of the wetsuit Smooth Glideskin sleeves at the extremities and on the neck: the smooth part is to ensure it sticks to the skin and limits the inflow and circulation of water.
  2. Watertight zip and wetsuit assembly
    The Tizip back zip is fully watertight. You are advised to lubricate regularly with silicone grease to lengthen the zip’s lifespan and to make the wetsuit easier to close. The seams of the suit and hood are waterproof, with a glued and blind stitched (GBS) assembly: the neoprene is glued first of all, then sewn for maximum resistance (the sewing needle does not go completely through the neoprene in order to prevent water infiltration).
  3. Freedom of movement
    One-piece with separate hood. 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. Pre-shaped cut on the arms and legs, with back arch for easier movements.
  4. Hood
    A separate 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.
  5. Getting the suit on and off
    Double sleeves with zips on the arms and legs for maximum comfort while getting dressed. The elongated pull cord makes it easier to close the back zip.
  6. Resistance to rubbing
    Ergonomic reinforcements on the knees (Supratex) and reinforcement panels on the shoulders. These reinforcements limit the effects of friction related to the environment or the material. The interior seams are ended with patches to make them stronger. The GBS seams are made of nylon thread rather than polyester for greater resistance to wear. Grippy print at the wrist to prevent the dive computer from turning.
  7. Weight of the wetsuit (size M)
    Weight: 3 kg with the hood (with production tolerance).
  8. 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: 2005). CLASS B certified wetsuit. A (+7 °C/+12 °C/+45 °F/+54 °F) B (+10 °C/+18 °C/+50 °F/+64 °F) C (+16 °C/+24 °C/+61 °F/+75 °F) D (+22 °C/+30 °C/+72 °F/+86 °F).
  9. What is a semi-dry suit?
    The semi-dry suit works on the same principle as a wetsuit, except that the TiZIP concept back zip is watertight. The cuffs prevent water from circulating. They are in fact clothes with low water circulation! The water is not renewed, which means there is less energy loss. Even if the body is wet, the main advantage of this wetsuit is that is keeps you warm when diving.
  10. How to use a semi-dry suit
    Put a little lukewarm water (with the aid of a Thermos flask) into your semi-dry suit before diving. This will reduce the squeeze effect: under the effects of pressure during the descent, air trapped in the suit from when it was put on gets compressed and can crush the neoprene, creating folds and leading to pinching of the skin. Remember to regularly lubricate the waterproof zip with a non-fatty silicone lubricant.
  11. Tips on how to get into a wetsuit
    Put your foot in a plastic bag. Then, slip your foot into your wetsuit. You entire foot comes out without snagging! 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.
  12. 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 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 wetsuit to fade and speeds up the ageing process of the neoprene. Zip fasteners can be cleaned with a toothbrush and lubricated with silicone grease.

    Dry your wetsuit out of the sun and well clear of all sources of heat. Store your wetsuit on a hanger to keep its shape and conserve the neoprene.
