Seaskin Undersuit High Wick Thinsulate 250
We now offer made to measure undersuits as standard. We have come across many instances of divers going to the trouble and expense of getting a made to measure drysuit but then using a off the peg undersuit underneath. It is obvious that if the undersuit is to small in any dimension then movement will be restricted when the two are worn together.
Using 250gsm Thinsulate makes this undersuit suitable for even long dives when wearing a membrane drysuit such as the Seaskin Nova. Skylon on the outside offers breathable, shower resistance without restricting air flow around the suit. The High Wick Honey comb liner keep keeps the skin surface as dry and comfortable as possible. It is coated RUCO-PUR SLY which is an invisible treatment which optimises the following textile functions: Hydrophilic properties (the basic prerequisite for climate and/or moisture management) which means in practise that the wicking properties are improved also improves the fabrics softness to promote wear comfort. Antistatic properties prevent the textile from clinging to the skin or base layers making is easier to move in and to get on and off.

Pertex Classic fabrics are treated with a unique, durable water repellent treatment, which causes surface moisture to bead up, keeping the user dry and comfortable. This treatment gives excellent water shedding and, as this is not a continuous coating, breathability remains unimpaired. Pertex has focused on fluorocarbon-based treatments, as they offer both water and soil resistance an important combination in diving use. The waterproofing treatment has been further developed to achieve a grade five water repellence. This treatment keeps the wearer dry and comfortable.
