The AquaLung AquaFlex 5mm Mens Wetsuit is one of the softest and flexible wetsuits on the market made from super stretchy 5mm neoprene. The stretchy neoprene and liquid seams means that you stay warm and the suit moves with you.
AquaFlex Neoprene has three times the stretch of standard neoprene which makes the suit easy to put on and take off and won't restrict you in any way. The seams are sealed with liquid rubber which makes them durable against unravelling and stops water and heat from leaking through.
- 5mm AquaFlex neoprene used throughout. This is the base thickness of the neoprene layer before the nylon outer and inner layers are added
- The outer nylon material is resistant to abrasions and hook-and-loop materials due to the tighter weave. This keeps the suit looking good and functioning well
- The inner material is ultra-soft, making these suits easy to don and doff
- Skin-in-neck seal provides for a comfortable stretch and seals out water
- Internal thermal chest and back material keep warmth at the body’s core
- Liquid rubber seams prevent water transfer and unravelling
- Silicone print wrist computer traction pad
- Three-way zipper seal minimises water entry to maintain warmth
- Kidney pad for additional insulation in this high heat loss area
- Pre-bent anatomic legs and arms for comfort
- The knee pads, wrist and ankles are ultra stretchy

Aqua Lung AquaFlex 5mm Mens Wetsuit - Features
|Ankle Seal Type|
?As with the neck and wrists, the ankle seals help to stop water be flushed into the suit through movement, trapping warm water against the skin and maintaining body temperature
|Ankle Seal Zips|
?A extra layer than can be unzipped to allow the fitting and sealing of neoprene boots, helping to prevent flushing of cold water
|Entry Zip Location|
?The location of the entry zip. The zip is normally located in the centre of the front or rear of the suit but an offset zip can provide better comfort and aid donning and doffing.
A wetsuit system usually has a rear entry zip on the full length piece and a front entry zip on the shorty. This is to avoid overlapping the zips which would create an uncomfortable ridge.
?Whether a hood is supplied with the suit
|Male or Female Fit|
?Wet suits are specifically cut for either men or women to provide a more comfortable fit.
|Neck Seal Type|
?The neck seal is an important component of a wetsuit, providing a critical seal against cold water flushing into the suit. An entry level suit will feature a simple zip up collar whilst a high specification suit will have an adjustable closure and smooth finish to create a good seal.
|Reinforced Knee Pads|
?Reinforced knee pads help to prolong the life of the suit by protecting the knees from abrasive damage.
?The stitching can affect both the comfort and also the thermal protection that the suit can provide.
Overlock is the basic stitching type, two pieces are stitched together creating a small ridge which can cause indentations in the skin and irritation.
Flatlock and Blind stitch joins two pieces edge to edge providing a more comfortable flat finish. Blind stitch is different stitch pattern to flatlock that uses glue. The reduced number of needle hole and use of glue helps reduce water entry through the stitching.
Seam sealed utilises a blind stitch join for comfort with the addition of an internal tape or liquid seal to create a better water barrier and prevent water seeping through the stitching.
?The neoprene thickness of the wet suit. Generally speaking the thicker the neoprene the warmer the suit but there are other factors to bear in mind such as the amount of water that is allowed to 'flush' through components like the zip and seals.
|Wrist Seal Type|
?The wrist seal is another important barrier to prevent water flowing freely in and out of the suit.
|Wrist Seal Zips|
?Wrist seal zips allow a outer neoprene layer to be rolled back so that the hand opening in a divers gloves can be sandwiched between two layers, helping to prevent water flushing into the gloves.
