Aqualung's Aquaflex 5mm Scuba Diving Wetsuit is a premium quality scuba wetty that is consistently one of our best selling dive wetties because of it's supreme warmth and stretch. Many years of product progression has allowed Aqualung to deliver a time-tested cut that fits a diverse range of body proportions, thanks to it's high-stretch rubber and anatomical panneling, which is a fancy way of saying that this suit is designed around your body profile when diving.
Completely sealed seams and a triple sealed zipper ensure that minimal water will enter this suit. Wetsuits don't create heat, they simply reflect your body heat back at you while keeping the cold water off your skin. This function only performs when a wetsuit is well fitting and sealed. An analogy we often use is that wearing a wetty that isn't sealed, or doesn't fit very well, is like having the heater on but the windows open.
AQUA LUNG WOMENS AQUAFLEX 5MM GALAXY SCUBA DIVING WETSUIT FEATURES
Glued and Blind-Stitched seams: This suit is stitched together with the GBS seam not only because its highly flexible but provide an effective seal against water entering your suit through the seam. A sealed seam is the most critical component of a scuba diving wetsuit yet is often overlooked. You can get the full rundown on seams here.
Taped Seal Reinforcement: The only downfall to the GBS seam is that it, like all seams, degrades over time. However, the application of a rubberised tape over the seams greatly increases seam durability, this is because the tape is lower stretch than the surrounding neoprene, this means stretch and strain is applied to the tape, not the seam.
Anatomical Panelling: conforms to the body and provides stretch where it's needed. AquaFlex: Aqualung's premium neoprene is used for the entirety of the wetsuit. Learn more here.
Limestone Neoprene: reduces dependacy on oil.
Skin Sealed Neck: A sticky internal lining 'adheres' to the skin, making it very difficult for water to enter through the neck.
Heavy Duty Zipper: will stand the test of time, if it's stuck just apply some hot water but be careful not to burn yourself or the neoprene.
Pre-bent anatomic legs and arms: Designed to rest in trim posture.
Ultra stretch wrist and ankles: Easy on and off!
Three-way zipper seal: Minimises water passage through the zipper, you can learn more about zippers and their positioning here.
