Mares Wetsuit 2ndskin Man
Don the 1.5mm shorty 2ndSkin underneath the steamer and jump into a new generation of protection against coldwater. Lighter, more comfortable, warmer and modular, the shorty is made of Metalite to create a water barrier for your second skin. In addition, the steamer is equipped with a back SilverSeal zip and zipped wrists and ankles to complete the concept.
This internal fabric dedicated to the inside panel of suits is soft, smooth, durable and developed to increase free movement. Ideal to guarantee extreme mobility, its refined finish prevents the suit from retaining water with the double benefit of keeping you warmer and making the suit dry faster.
The spine pad is an additional layer of thick neoprene that is stitched under the back zipper of a steamer. This additional layer provides double benefits. Its smooth external skin perfectly adheres with the inner part of the zipper, thereby obtaining an exceptional seal. Its thickness provides much more comfort during diving, reducing the uncomfortable feeling of the tank on the back.
The double cone system (with or without zips) minimizes the water flow in the most critical sealing areas like wrists and ankles. First, fold the glide part of the inner cone against your skin and second, overlap a glove with the glide surface of upper cone, thus providing an incomparable seal.
New neck closure allows you to easily customize how tight you want the neck. Velcro neck folds in on itself when needed to eliminate snagging of the plush or neoprene. Back zips with skin on skin zipper seals for superior water seal.
SUPRATEX KNEE PAD
Knee protection made of anti-scratch polyurethane not only looks sharp, but is engineered for high strength and protection without compromising flexibility. The linear design moves in line with your body while still guarding this high wear area.
Both Mares Isotherm and 2nd Skin use a TIZIP high strenght zipper. Isotherm uses a horizontal version, the SuperSeal, which is the perfect zipper for semi dry diving suits. The 2ndSkin uses the SilverSeal which is extremely strong and forgiving when installed upright in the back of steamers. For best performance, it is recommended that both be lubricated regularly.
