Questions and Answers for Bare 7mm Velocity Super-Stretch Hooded Diving Wetsuit Vest:
Do you think this will provide enough exposure protection when used over a full 3.5 mm wet suit in 40-50 degree water...thanks
Bill (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com)
That depends on the diver, but 3mm on the legs and arms is not enough.
7MM VELOCITY STEP-IN HOODED VEST
A progressive-stretch vest, which layers perfectly with a 7 or 5mm full suit, that provides additional warmth.
THE RIGHT STRETCH IN THE RIGHT PLACE. Progressive stretch is a concept only available in the Velocity series. It all starts with BARE-Fit, which is the foundation of every BARE suit. BARE-Fit uses ergonomic suit design involving complex shaped patterns with articulated arms and legs. From there, zones associated with performance within the suit are selected. Then, proven fabrics are chosen from various prototypes that have been tested for years. By placing the different fabrics in particular panels of the suit, the VElOCITY series delivers exceptional fit, feel and performance.

FULL-STRETCH DONE RIGHT. Full-stretch suits are not new. However, a full-stretch suit that combines legendary anatomically correct patterning for a 3D shape, premium components like a colormatched G-lock zipper and superior construction and graphics, stops the press. The BARE ELASTEK wetsuit line utilizes the latest in neoprene laminates that provide uninhibited fl exibility and stretch with a silky-soft feel that won't be felt in any other suit. Place the BARE ELASTEK side by side any competing wetsuit and you will not only be able to feel the diff erence, you'll see it too.
Our suit has a 3D shape that demonstrates our dedication to craftsmanship, while the competition will look quite flat. This shaping is key in elevating your comfort and keeping stress loads on seams to a minimum. Take a closer look at the detailing of the ELASTEK: color-accented seams, glossy 3D inks, sublimated graphics, stainless-steel zipper pull, new and more flexible FORMTEK kneepads.the list goes on. If you are a diver that appreciates the details in design and desires unbelievable stretch, this is your next suit.
