What is the major difference between the Aqualock system and the Thermoprene system. Is it worth spending 2x the cash for the Aqualock? Which is warmer? I will be using this hooded vest to compliment my 7 ml Aqualock wetsuit.
Thermoprene is one of their earlier models of super-stretch neoprene and is approximately 75% more elastic than a normal neoprene suit. The current Aqualock version is using the newer blend of super-stretch neoprene that is 200% more elastic than a typical neoprene suit. It also uses the new Aqualock seam sealing technique to trap more water inside the suit and make it easier for the diver to keep warm.
Hello, Im a beginner and was advised to buy a hooded vest to use under a wetsuit of 5mm here in Japan. The underwater temperature seems to be about 18~24 Celsius degree. Im concerned about keeping me warm and comfortable. Would you recommend this model or is there any other that would fit better my purposes and Japanese water conditions? Thank you and best regards, Alexandre
Ive seen hooded vest worn both under and over a regular wet suit. It would seem under the wet suit would make more sense. Is either over or under the best?
Hi Lawrence, If you have a wetsuit that is a perfect fit were it on the outside. A lot people have a wetsuit with a little extra space on the inside, then wear the hooded vest under the wetsuit. Wearing a hooded vest is going to add more core warmth either way.
