When diving, cold is your worst enemy! Using the right thermal protection based on the water temperature, is essential. 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. 100.00% Rubber – Chloroprene (CR) – Neoprene. 100.00% Polyamide (PA).
