Additional information

Details on thermal insulation
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 you 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 seams of the wetsuit are waterproof due to GBS assembly (Glued and Blind Stitched): 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).
Resistance to rubbing
The wetsuit is equipped with reinforcements on the knees to increase resistance.
Weight of the wetsuit (size L)
Weight: 1.03 kg (with production tolerance).
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: 2005).This wetsuit is certified for use in waters warmer than 25 °C.
What is a wet diving wetsuit?
This is the most common type of diving wetsuit 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 wetsuits.
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 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.
What is the SUBEA brand?
Tribord Diving is now called SUBEA, the Decathlon brand dedicated to underwater sports (snorkelling, SCUBA diving, spearfishing and free-diving).The markings on all our diving products will gradually be replaced. Why SUBEA?Because: "SUBaquatic Experiences are Amazing"!For more information: www.subea.com

    Feeling Fantastic And Confident

    It's my first wetsuit and I'm really happy with the quality of material and the GBS. The suit's at a great price point too. Physically, I'm 175 cm tall, 65 kgs and have a small upper-body frame. The M size fits just fine. I've spent more than 10 pool-hours so far at 23 deg C, and felt fantastic, relaxed and confident. Taking it to the sea soon. Thanks, Decathlon! :)

    Excellent Build Quality and Keeps you Warm

    Purchased this wetsuit for use in Mumbai in winter months when the water gets pretty cold. The performance is superb, and build quality is top notch. Highly recommended.
