This suit has been made to be almost completely watertight so cold water is kept out and only just allowed to be absorbed by the neoprene rather than seeping in through cheap seems. This is done by the use of a waterproof stretch taping that covers every seem within the suit itself along with a very warm mesh neoprene chest and back panel keeping you nice and toasty where it really matters. Please note this is an Ex-Showroom Product. The product has never been used. Only minor graphical alterations may have been made when compared to a main line product. There is still a one year warranty that still stands with these products.
