  • The high visibility orange used in the design will make it easy to locate you at all times.
  • The 4 mm thickness of the abdominal area will provide the thermal insulation you need, helping you maintain an ideal body temperature throughout your journey.
  • This thickness will also give you the buoyancy you need to feel comfortable and confident in the water.
  • The combination of different thicknesses of neoprene panels allows for a more elastic material to be placed in the arm area to increase flexibility in swim strokes. You'll be comfortable without the neoprene restricting your shoulders and arms.
