one piece or

two piece

Two piece wetsuits are warmer than one piece wetsuits because they have double the insulation on your core (where you need it most). They are also more versatile because you have the option to take off the jacket & wear the long john by itself while you're mucking around on the boat. 

Our one piece, front-zip wetsuits are easier to put on than two-piece suits, & the two-way zipper means you can go to the bathroom without needing a comfort zip. 

 neoprene:

#38, #39 or #45

Our entire range is made 100% from Japanese Yamamoto neoprene, the warmest lightest, most comfortable & most durable neoprene out there. Within the Yamamoto range there are different kinds of neoprene with different levels of stretch, comfort, durability & warmth. As a general rule, the stretchier the neoprene, the more comfortable but less durable it is. Our range includes: ​

 

YAMAMOTO #38: Highly durable

YAMAMOTO #39: Stretchy & comfortable

YAMAMOTO #45: Ultimate flex, comfort & warmth (Yamamoto's top of the range)

exterior fabric

The exterior fabric also has an impact on the flexibility & durability of a wetsuit. Our range includes: 

TUFFTEX: Highly durable & hard-wearing

MR7000: Flexible, soft & comfortable 

HECS STEALTHSCREEN PATENTED LINING: Flexible & durable fabric that contains a mesh of conductive carbon fibre, neutralising the human body’s electrical fields & making them virtually undetectable to marine life

HYPERSTRETCH CAMO: 

Highly flexible, soft, comfortable & comes in great camo colours​​

open cell or closed cell

Open cell wetsuits are softer, more flexible & warmer than closed-cell wetsuits, but they are challenging to put on (you need to use lubricant), delicate & can tear easily. 

Closed cell wetsuits are more durable & easier to put on.

& delivery

Good things take time 

 

It takes around 4 - 6 weeks from the date you send us your measurements for us to create a unique pattern for you and manufacture your wetsuit at our workshop

When we receive your measurements we will check over them to make sure that everything looks OK. If any measurements look a bit out of place, we will get in touch with you and ask you to check the measurement again.

 

Once we are happy with the measurements we will begin the process of creating a unique pattern for you and manufacturing your wetsuit at our workshop.
