The SporaSub Sandwich 5mm Jacket is a popular smoothskin wetsuit with open cell lining, integrated hood and beaver tail closure. The smoothskin outer reduces and drag so you can slip through the water easier and open-cell inner traps water against you keeping you warm.

 

Smooth

The outer lining of the suit is smoothskin neoprene with flat seams that all reduce drag so you can move faster and easier through the water. An integrated hood keeps your head and body warm with less water flushing compared to a separate hood and it improves your streamlining too.

 

Open Cell

The inner lining of the suit is bare open cell neoprene that while fragile is great at sticking to your skin and stopping water from flushing around the suit keeping you warm. You will need help from some kind of suit lubricant to get it on but when it's on you can spend much longer in the water than a conventional suit.

Doubling up with the separate pants and you get twice the insulation over your mid section and it's easy to get on with two parts.

SporaSub Sandwich 5mm Jacket - Features

FeatureProduct Specification
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.
2-Part
Hood Included
?Whether a hood is supplied with the suit
Integrated
Male or Female Fit
?Wet suits are specifically cut for either men or women to provide a more comfortable fit.
Male
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.
Integrated Hood
Reinforced Knee Pads
?Reinforced knee pads help to prolong the life of the suit by protecting the knees from abrasive damage.
-
Stitching type
?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.
Blind Stitch
Style2-Part
Thermal Protection Class
?Class A: 7 - 12 degrees celcius
Class B: 10 - 18 degrees celcius
Class C: 16 - 24 degrees celcius
Class D: 22 - 30 degrees celcius

This is the thermal class given to the wetsuit by an independent testing body. Each class band covers a temperatures range that a suit certified for. This grading system currently only applies to full length suits, shorties are excluded.

As an example two different 5mm thick wetsuits may look the same but one is more expensive and receives a higher grade. Without the grade to identify that the suit provides better thermal protection it is difficult to justify the higher price.

-
Thickness (mm)
?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.
5
Wrist Seal Type
?The wrist seal is another important barrier to prevent water flowing freely in and out of the suit.
Open Cell
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.
