FEATURES OF THE PRODUCT

The concept of thermal insulation using neoprene:
By trapping a thin layer of water around the body, a neoprene wetsuit works in two ways: 1. The water trapped inside the wetsuit gradually warms up 2. Heat transfer from the body decreases. The wetsuit and the thin covering of water form a layer of insulation. Neoprene is a closed-cell elastomeric foam with trapped nitrogen bubbles that have insulating properties.
The design of the DG500 dinghy/catamaran neoprene wetsuit is intended for cool and cold weather:
The Tribord DG500 neoprene wetsuit is made of 100% neoprene (thickness: 3 mm) to ensure optimal thermal insulation. All seams are sewn together with strong thread suited to this particular type of fabric and are glued to prevent water getting through the seams. A neoprene strip is sewn under the zip to reduce the cooling effects of any water that gets through it. In the event of moderate to strong winds and cold weather, also wear the Tribord S500 sailing anorak.
Freedom of movement of the DG500 dinghy/catamaran neoprene wetsuit:
The Tribord DG500 dinghy/catamaran neoprene wetsuit has a cut and materials designed to make the manoeuvres and different positions of light sailing much easier. The arms and chest piece consist of a different piece of fabric to make manoeuvres and movements much easier. The legs, buttocks and knees are also separate pieces to make sitting, crouching and changing sides in the boat much easier. All the seams are stretch seams.
Neoprene reinforcements on the DG500 dinghy/catamaran wetsuit on the knees, buttocks and thighs:
It has reinforcements on and below the knees and on the seat and thighs. The thickness is 7mm on the knees for added comfort. The additional fabric works in two ways: - to reduce the wear and tear of the neoprene in areas that are the most exposed to rubbing from the boat (deck fittings, rubbing strake, carpet, etc., depending on the supports) - to reduce the inconvenience of this rubbing on the knees, buttocks and thighs for the user, who is wearing the suit and is active on the boat
Construction of the neck of the DG500 dinghy/catamaran neoprene wetsuit:
The neck finish and height has been developed to limit the sensation of discomfort from the neoprene and irritation on even the most sensitive skin. However, not everyone's skin reacts in the same way: in this case, we recommend that you wear a top under the wetsuit to reduce sensitive rubbing and chafing.

    Alles in allem gut.

    ist ok. türkiser Streifen in der MItte ist geschmackssache. Größe für eine schnellwachsende Jugendliche schwer zu bestimmen. Riecht- wie alle Anzüge scheinbar- sehr nach Plastik.

    Drôle d'odeur

    Combinaison confortable.
    Mais degage une odeur forte et désagréable.
    Espérons que ce ne soit pas toxique...
