What is a semi-dry suit?
The semi-dry suit works on the same principle as a wetsuit, except that the T ZIP concept back zip is watertight. The cuffs prevent water from circulating. They are in fact clothes with low water circulation! The water is not renewed, which means there is less energy loss. Even if the body is wet, the main advantage of this wetsuit is that is keeps you warm when diving.
*The suit is made from 7 mm neoprene, covered on both sides with a polyamide fabric of varying thickness. *Thermospan on the chest and back. Sheico L foam. Nylon lining. Seals at the wrists and ankles with smooth double cuffs that can ALSO be folded over for added watertightness. *A high collar that is designed to be folded over with the smooth side against the skin for a seal at the neck. *T-ZIP concept watertight back zip.
*A separate 7 mm thick neoprene hood, with plush loop interior, that fits flat against the face with a preformed chin. *Air Expulse system: a system to evacuate air bubbles trapped in the hood. *It features a snap hook to attach it to the right thigh of the suit.
Getting the suit on and off
Double sleeves with zips on the arms and legs for maximum comfort while getting dressed. The elongated pull cord makes it easier to close the back zip.
Freedom of movement
One-piece with separate hood. Ultraspan side panels to adapt to fit different body shapes and suit various physiques. No underarm seams for easier arm movements. Pre-shaped cut.
Resistance to wear
Ergonomic reinforcements at the knees (Supratex) and shoulders, wrist protection to reduce the impact of friction. Interior reinforcements for enhanced resistance to use. Inseams covered with patches. Strength of nylon thread stitch bonded seams instead of polyester for better resistance to wear.

How to use a semi-dry suit 1/2
Put a little lukewarm water (with the aid of a Thermos flask) into your semi-dry suit before diving. This will reduce the squeeze effect (under the effects of pressure during the descent, air trapped in the suit from when it was put on gets compressed and can crush the neoprene, creating folds and leading to pinching of the skin).
How to use a semi-dry suit 2/2
For diving in very cold water (e.g. in lakes and quarries), we recommend that you wear a diving vest under your semi-dry suit for added comfort.
