What amount of stretch does this suit have? Ive seen some sites list 30% or 100% and Im not sure what I should look for to use this wetsuit while surfing.
Hello Amy, this suit is not made out of any super-stretch material. If you are looking for a suit like this that will stretch then take a look at the: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-43/149506/Henderson-1.5mm-Microprene-2-Dive-Skin-Wetsuit.html.
I am 6ft 3. 180 lbs, 41 chest, 32 waist. I have been looking at mares sizing charts and numerous websites have different chart sizes for mares. Need some advice please
The waist and chest are the most important measurements for the fit with a wetsuit. Height usually will work even if it is one to two inches short or tall. Weight will depend on the divers body build and is the last measurement to consider. As long as the item is not used in the water you have 60 days to refund or exchange it.
hi , what is the fit wet suit for me .. my chest 45 , waist 49 , weight 120 kg and height 177?? thanks ...
The most important measurements any time you purchase a wetsuit using the manufacturer''s sizing charts will always be your waist and chest/bust measurements. The suit needs to fit your torso correctly in order to do its job properly. Keep in mind there is no such thing as a comfortable wetsuit on the surface. You want it to be snug, but not cut off circulation to your extremities. The more snug it is, the thinner the layer of water your body is heating. If its too loose you will remain warm for awhile, but eventually your body won''t be able to keep up with the greater amount of water flowing through the suit and you''ll wind up getting cold faster. After that your height is a secondary measurement. The manufacturers realize that generally speaking your boots and gloves can overlap slightly short arms and legs, or the diver can push or roll up longer sleeves and/or arms if need be. Weight is a measurement the diver can usually ignore. It really has little to no bearing what so ever on the sizing and fit of your suit. The manufacturers do not take into account muscle being more dense than fat, so based simply on fitness levels 2 people can be the exact same size but quite different in weight. This measurement should only be used if the person is literally on the fence between 2 sizes in all categories.
IS this wetsuit waterproof?
Hello Beto, no this suit is not waterproof. This suit is designed to trap a thin layer of water between you and the suit. Then over time your body will warm that water up and the suit helps reflect that heat back to your body to help with your warmth.
482068 - Coral Wetsuit
A comfortable second skin for the tropic dives
• Rubber knee pads
• Metalite fabric inside
• Easy donning and doffi ng
Coral is a very warm suit. The internal fabric called Metalite has a heat retaining effect. This means that the body heat is refl ected thus less heat is lost. Also ideal as a back-up suit or it can be worn under other suits. Stirrups secure placement.
Warm Water: Neoprene thickness of 3 millimeter or less.
Neoprene: Use of the micro bubble increases the density and prevents the pinhole penetrating through the materials. It reduces the thickness of the materials from traditional 7mm to 4mm and achieves light and compact fitting.
Trilastic is our distinctive marking, the symbol of Mares know-how in terms of Neoprene.
At the start, Trilastic was identified with the idea of developing a dive suit with Neoprene sheets of different thicknesses. The greatest thickness is positioned at the core chest area and back, gradually thinning out on the arms and legs down to the wrists and ankles, where the material used is not just thinner but also more elastic, to improve seal and, of course, facilitate putting the suit on and taking it off.
Today, Trilastic has greater meaning. It is a world of materials, linings, finishes, zippers, and technical details that all aim to create the ideal suit for every need and every type of dive. Trilastic means mating the most suitable type of material to each section of the body for that particular type of dive.
