All you need to know when it comes to wetsuit technologies, from neoprene to seams or closing system.
All wetsuits are made of neoprene. Great wetsuits are made of great neoprene. The higher the quality, the lighter, warmer and more flexible your wetsuit will be.

When combined with neoprene, the lining drastically reduces heat loss. Its unique construction helps to expel water, so you stay warmer and your suit stays lighter.
It's our warmest, fastest-drying lining to date. Mineral-enriched fibers retain body heat while our Diamond Deluxe material maximizes stretch and traps air against the skin for added warmth.
Thermal lining uses mineral-enriched fibers to insulate and retain body heat longer. Its unique construction helps expel water so you stay warmer and your suit dries faster.
Technology super warm fleece lining keeps body heat in and water out. This lightweight material insulates to keep you warm yet repels water for a faster drying time.
The seams are the skeleton of a wetsuit. They determine the strength, flexibility and watertightness of its construction, so it's an important factor when picking the right suit for you.
F'N LITE TAPED
