Developed using a combination of superstretch and thermocore neoprene, the Proteus wetsuit is designed specifically for scuba diving and offers surprising thermal protection and comfort during a dive. Incorporating the unique hydrolock (patent pending) neck seal and long glideskin seals at the wrists and ankles, the Proteus wetsuit eliminates almost all water ingress and is rated the warmest diving wetsuit in its class by Sport Diver Magazine.
Durawear Patches: Applied to the critical areas of the proteus to minimise the abrasion for other equipment at the shoulders and around the waist. The stippled pattern on the chest of the suit maximises flexibility and thermal protection and helps to speed up drying time.
Glideskin Seals: Smooth Glideskin at wrists and ankles provide a highly effective barrier to water ingress and eliminate water flush through. In donning the suit - to avoid damaging the material, turn the seals up before putting the suit on and and roll them down once the suit is on.
Hydrolock Neck Seal: With over 8 months of prototyping, this features a unique combination of glideskin, smoothskin and standard neoprene. The double seal virtually eliminates water ingress into the suit. An internal back panel prevents water entering through the zip from reaching the back. The neck collar is lined with glideskin neoprene and fits snugly around the neck giving a smooth, complete seal.
