Neoprene is a type of foam rubber that was
developed in the 1930s by scientists at DuPont. It
is used in virtually all wetsuits and is generally
laminated on either side with various materials to
produce varying degrees of stretch. BARE suits
generally use four different types of laminates
that produce four different degrees of stretch.
(1) Full-Stretch or 4-way stretch, used in our
ELASTEK suits, (2) Progressive-Stretch, used in
our Velocity series suits, (3) Powerstretch, used
in our Ignite series suits and (4) Standard
stretch used in our Sport s series suits.
What do I need to do before the dive?
When donning your boots be careful not to snag the
inner skin materials of the suit with fingernails,

What do I need to do after the dive?

the zippers completely. Once all the zippers have
been unzipped, make your way out of the boots

pulling or snagging with fingernails, rings,

rinse your boots and hang on a wetsuit hanger (a
thin hanger will stretch the suit). Be sure to
pull the zipper down all the way.
Note: Avoid placing your boots on hot surfaces and
storing in the trunk of your car for extended
periods of time.
