Understanding this wetsuit's technology
Steamer wetsuits are full body suits and are made for cold climates. The long arms and long legs are their to help keep in your body heat and help keep out any cold water. These suits are predominantly used in Winter.
4/3mm Wetsuit Thickness
4/3mm wetsuit thickness is ideal for really cold waters. These wetsuits use 3mm of neoprene in the farthest ends of the arms and legs, and use 4mm in the chest areas.
Neospan 4.0 Neospan allows the user four-way stretch. This allows easier movement throughout all conditions and situations. Neospan can be manufactured in a variety of colours and is most popular with ocean sports.
GBS refers to glued and blind stitched. This is the most common stitch you will come across. The GBS construction technique allows the rider to feel higher levels of stretch which also allows higher levels of durability.
Chest Zip wetsuits are made to be entered and exited via a zip in the chest. These suits are easy to get in and out of and are the most common suit you will come across in the intermediate to advanced market. Having the zipper in the chest affords the user maximum stretch throughout the rest of their body.
The key stash is a small piece of nylon string that allows the user to lasso and attach their key whilst they surf. The key stash is in the chest area and does not get in your way. The key stash does not work with electric keys.
Heat lining refers to an internal fabric which feels almost like fur to the touch. Heat lining materials hold your body temp and help maintain your warmth for the duration of your surf.
