The Mares XR3 Drysuit is a neoprene drysuit which is made to be both tough and flexible with a handy thigh pocket too.  The high density neoprene is pre-compressed so depth shouldn't affect it very much and the suit can resist abrasions.

  • High density hyper-flexible neoprene - tough but flexible
  • Adjustable, pre-mounted, large, comfortable elastic suspenders
  • Neoprene 4mm neck and latex wrist seals (allowing for use of dry gloves)
  • Enhanced design for maximum flexibility
  • Embedded boots in 4mm neoprene with a rigid sole
  • Reinforced boot instep and adjustable velcro strap for perfect closure
  • 1 neoprene wide zippered pocket on the right leg
  • Dry seal around neck and complete coverage from the hood to avoid water exposure
  • Graphite (Kevlar type) protection on the knees, shoulders and posterior
  • TM back mounted dry zip - XR inlet and outlet valves
  • Latex seals on neck and wrists

Mares XR XR3 Drysuit - Features

FeatureProduct Specification
Cargo Pocket(s)
?Whether cargo pockets are fitted to the drysuit, typically to the outer thigh area.
Yes
Carry Bag Supplied
?Whether a carry / storage bag is suppled with the drysuit
Yes
Dump Valve Type
?Dump valves allow a diver to vent excess air from the suit to achieve the required buoyancy.

Typically two different dump valves types are available, an automatic valve mounted to the shoulder which has adjustable sensitivity, as the air pressure builds up inside the suit the valve will open at its predetermined setting to reduce the air volume.

The other dump valve is a one way valve mounted by one of the cuff seals which is operated by raising and lowering the valve to release air as required
Auto Shoulder Dump
Hood Supplied
?Whether a dedicated hood is supplied with the dry suit
Yes
Inflator Type
?An inflator valve allows a diver the add addition air into the suit to increase the buoyancy. Two generic types of inflator valve exist.

A fixed inflator valve is installed and set at a pre-determined angle. The disadvantage is that it can not be altered if you wish to route your inflator hose a different way.

A swivel inflator eliminates this problem by allowing the inflator to swivel though 360 degree, giving far more potential for hose routing.
Swivel Inflator
Integrated Boots
?Dry suits are commonly fitted with rubber boots which in some cases are also neoprene lined to increase the thermal properties. Some suits, however, are fitted with neoprene stocks so that divers are able to choose their preferred footwear such as neoprene or laced boots.
Yes
Integrated Braces
?Whether the dry suit is fitted with or is supplied with internal braces to increase the comfort of the suit. Braces help to keep excess material up around the torso area where the extra freedom of movement is required.

Braces are more likely to be found on membrane suits that have a lot more excess material due to the nature of the membrane material.
Yes
Neck Seal Material
?Seals prevent water from entering the suit and can be made from either latex or neoprene.

Latex seals are more flexible but can be easily damaged and perish over time. They can also be affected contaminants such as oil and can deteriorate if left in sunlight

Neoprene seals typically last longer but because the material is stiffer they can allow water to enter the suit as they are not able to create a seal that is as effective as latex.
Neoprene
Neoprene Thickness
?The neoprene thickness in mm if applicable
4mm
Suit Entry Type
?The suit zip is commonly installed across the back of the shoulders, but can also be found diagonally across the front of the torso.

A rear entry zip is usually easier to get on and off but does require a buddy to initially open and close the zip.

A front entry zip allows the diver to open and close the suit zip alone without the need of assistance. The zip location and cut of the suit panels can hinder donning and doffing of the suit to some degree though.
Back
Suit Material
?Membrane suits are typically made using thin materials laminated together in layers. A membrane suit by itself provides very little thermal protection against the elements so a diver is reliant upon a seperate thermal layer to maintain body temperature. Membrane dry suits typically do not stretch, so they need to be made oversized and baggy to allow flexibility at the joints and this also makes a membrane dry suits easy to put on and get off.

Neoprene suits are made from a synthetic rubber material which contains millions of air bubbles, providing far greater thermal protection without the need for a seperate thermal layer. Additional, should the suit be punctured or torn the suit will still maintain a significant amount of its thermal properties. As the suits are made from a fairly rigid material and are designed to fit reasonably close it can be more difficult to to get on and off.
Neoprene
Wrist Seal Material
?Seals prevent water from entering the suit and can be made from either latex or neoprene.

Latex seals are more flexible but can be easily damaged and perish over time. They can also be affected contaminants such as oil and can deteriorate if left in sunlight

Neoprene seals typically last longer but because the material is stiffer they can allow water to enter the suit as they are not able to create a seal that is as effective as latex.
