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.
3/2mm Wetsuit Thickness
3/2mm wetsuit thickness is ideal for cold waters. These wetsuits use 2mm of neoprene in the farthest ends of the arms and legs, and use 3mm 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.
Zipperless entry wetsuits have a pull-to-the-side entry point at the chest which can be tightened by a draw string. These suits are surprisingly easy to get in and out of. Zipperless suits minimise the chance of water getting in.
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.
