ROBUST - WATER_GATE_PLUS - PRICE VALUE
Double lined Neoprene (DL): outside stretch jersey layer to prevent the neoprene against ripping, increases the elasticity and robustness of the suit and includes a laminated thermo jersey layer inside for enhanced thermal insulation and overall comfort.
Glued blind-stitch (GBS) seams: uses highly adhesive, UV resistant contact glue and blind-stitched seams (visible only on one side) – tear-proof, elasticated, highly water-resistant and provide great insulation and comfort.
Water_Gate_Plus: a batwing panel on the back (behind the zip). Acts as a barrier against water, which enters the suit via the back zip.
Seam_reinforcements: All the stress points that come under a lot of force are reinforced with either Melco_tape on the inside seam, or rubber patches on the outside of the suit to prevent ripping.
Contour_cut: to improve flexibility and comfort. It greatly enhances flex in the collar, wrists, elbows, insteps and the back of the knees.
Drain_holes: All wetsuits that have the Water_Gate_Plus batwing panels have small holes in the lower back. This keeps the back area dry by allowing water which has leaked in via back zip to drain out. They are also placed in the calf area to prevent water from being trapped.
