Questions and Answers for Pinnacle 3mm Breaker Titanium Wetsuit:
There are no questions yet.
The BREAKER is an industrial-strength 3mm suit. Built with all the features of a 7mm suit, the BREAKER is ready to withstand years of tropical travel.
Breaker • 1 piece rear-entry jumpsuit design • A full 3mm neoprene throughout the entire suit – not a reduced 3/2 like some suits • Roll neck collar with Velcro™ closure is soft and comfortable, yet forms a superior water seal • Molded rubber shoulder pads protect the diver and the suit while helping stabilize the BC • Honeycomb o-ring wrist and ankle seals • 10mm spine pad includes smoothskin sealing surfaces to retard water entry through the zipper • Each seam intersection is equipped with stress disks to reinforce stitch strength and improve comfort • Contoured body panels create a better fit, adding comfort and reducing water entry • Free wetsuit hanger
The key step to making any wetsuit perform to its ultimate potential is reducing water transfer. This process, whereby water from the diving environment enters and exits the wetsuit, allows cold water to enter the suit and lets bodywarmed water exit; thus chilling the diver, even in tropical waters. PINNACLE nearly eliminates water transfer by creating better barriers to keep cold water out, making more form-fitting products that prevent internal water movement, employing the renowned Merino™ lining system to enable body heat to warm internal water, and then making it extremely difficult for that warm water to escape.
In order to prevent water entry and egress, PINNACLE employs the latest technology in sealing systems. Features like honeycomb o-ring wrist seals, Orcaskin™ forearm gussets, smoothskin chimney seals in the ankles, roll-neck collars with smoothskin sealing surfaces, smoothskin-to-smoothskin sealing surfaces on 10mm spine pads, and the innovative Pinnacle Defense System (P.D.S.) combine in PINNACLE suits to create a significantly better water barrier than in other brands. These sealing systems work as checkpoints, neither allowing water in the suit nor out.
The second step, having a more form-fitting suit, is achieved by offering divers more choices in sizes. PINNACLE offers as many as 17 male, 12 female and 4 children’s sizes in wetsuits, as well as more sizes of boots, gloves, and hoods than most other manufacturers. PINNACLE has the ability to customize suits to some extent to fit people with more challenging shapes, but with up to 33 stock sizes, one is sure to fit almost any diver perfectly; and a tighter, better-fitting suit leaves less room for water to move, which keeps the diver warmer.
