One of our most popular videos has been a guide to putting on a wetsuit and how it should fit.
To make it easy for you to understand how a
wetsuit is constructed and what that means to you in terms of benefits we have
created the easy guide below. As the features get more advanced the wetsuit
prices generally increases.
The two pieces of neoprene are butted
together to form a smooth overlay this is then stitched usually in two lines to
ensure maximum comfort. You will usually find flatlock stitching in entry level
summer 3mm wetsuits and never in winter wetsuits. Most shortie wetsuits that
you buy usually are flatlock and entry-level summer wetsuits. Visually if you
turn the wetsuit inside out you will see the stitching.
Glued Blind Stitched or GBS
This is the more popular construction of
mid to high end wetsuits and form a better bond to ensure water does not
penetrate the inside of the wetsuit through the seams.The material is butted together glued
and stitched without going through the neoprene. This type of construction is a
must as a minimum for a winter 5mm wetsuit. Most mid range summer wetsuits are
also starting to use
this way of making the wetsuit. For
starters it’s far warmer and definitely warmer just makes the whole process of
wearing a wetsuit far more comfortable. If you look inside the wetsuit you will
see the material is bonded with no visible stitching.
Smooth skin is the material usually on the
front and back panels of the wetsuit. To the touch it’s like a rubbery smooth
material this is designed to prevent wind from entering the wetsuit when its
wet thus keeping you much warmer. The only down side is that it can be torn by
finger nails when putting the wetsuit on so be careful with this type of
material. There is some debate on whether it is necessary anymore, as the development
of double lined neoprene which is where there are two layer of material crossed
over that forms a good layer may have made smooth skin less attractive. The
other down side of smooth skin is that it is not very flexible and can restrict
movement. So wetsuits like the tri are usually all smooth skin to aid with
swimming and prevent water drag. This material is a finemesh so not exactly the
This is the liquid that is put over the
seams on some high end wetsuits to ensure that no water can enter any seams. It
is less flexible than super stretch material so in that respect reduce flex and
again with the advancements of wetsuit technology it can be perceived as over
kill as the construction of wetsuits is so good nowadays. Some brands are
putting a more flexible taping system on the inside of the wetsuit to give you
all the flex and protection you need, I think this type of seam protect will
become the preferred method.
2mm of thickness is generally a summer
short arm and short leg wetsuit and is used in waters around 20C plus degrees
3mm of thickness is usually a full length
summer wetsuit and if the preferred choice to water as low as 15c plus degrees
5mm of wetsuit thickness is usually used in
terms of winter wetsuit in waters as low as 5C degrees plus
6mm of wetsuit thickness is for the serious
cold water user that needs maximum protection waters as low as 3C plus
