Additional information

Details on thermal insulation
Wet-type full one-piece wetsuit, made of 100% stretch 5.5 mm panels (with production tolerance).5mm neoprene foam, covered with nylon fabric on both sides. Seams taped using a GBS (glued and blind stitched) assembly. Weight of the wetsuit (size L): 1.7kg.
GBS (glued and blind stitched) assembly
The seams of the wetsuit and hood are waterproof, stitched in GBS (Glued and Blind Stitching):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).
Ease of movement / Putting on and taking off the wetsuit
One-piece with an attached hood equipped with the Air Expulse system:a system to evacuate air bubbles trapped in the hood. Easy to put on with the diagonal zip on the front of the wetsuit.No underarm seams for easier arm movements.
Size identification
Club special: easy to read sizes thanks to the large print on the neck.
Resistance to rubbing
The wetsuit is equipped with reinforcements on the knees to increase resistance.
Weight of the wetsuit (size L)
Weight: 2.15 kg (with production tolerance).
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 C 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).
Adjust the thickness, adjust your warmth!
When diving, cold is your worst enemy! Using the right thermal protection based on the water temperature, is essential. To avoid having to purchase different wetsuits for different diving conditions, we created the concept, with five pieces that can be combined with your wetsuit 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.
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 slip your leg 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.
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.

    Für Preis ganz gut

    Bequemes Neopren, verwende es für Canyoning. passt bei mir sehr gut nur die Kapuze ist zu kurz (oder meine Nacke zu lang), und habe lieber die Kapuze ein bisschen dünner. Sonst bequem, gutte passform, ziemlich stretchy.

    Super Preis Leistung

    Ich tauche seit über dreißig Jahren. Ich kenne gute und vor allem auch teure Anzüge. Ich habe diesen Anzug für mich und einen für meinen 15 jährigen Sohn, der noch wächst gekauft. Meine Erwartungen bei dem Preis waren eher verhalten. Allerdings überraschte mich die Qualität. Die Verarbeitung und das Material sind erstaunlich gut. Erstaunlich vor dem Hintergrund des geringen Preises. Der Anzug passt.Das Material ist weich und geschmeidig. Die Beweglichkeit ist gut. Keine Kratz- und Scheuerstellen an Nähten und Reißverschluss. Über die Haltbarkeit kann ich nach so kurzer Zeit noch nichts sagen. Die häufigste "Todesursache" für Taucheranzüge ist falsches An- bzw. Ausziehen. Ich habe meinem Sohn erst einmal die wichtigsten Fehler dabei erklärt. Nun bin ich optimistisch, dass wir lange damit Spass haben werden.
