W30 Mens 2.5mm Shorty
The Waterproof W30 Mens 2.5mm Shorty is a thin wetsuit perfect for tropical waters where you want some core protection from chill. Covering your core will keep you warm but is much easier and comfortable to don and doff.
Who's the W30 For?
The W30 is a tropical shorty to be worn in warmer waters. If you feel the cold or are planning a longer dive then a 2.5mm will keep you warm enough but won't feel bulky or buoyant. Big open panels of neoprene stretch so you can move around easily while still being protected from a chill.
The Waterproof B1 Boots will protect your feet and be just as comfortable as your wetsuit. The R30 Short Sleeve Rash Vest or the Long Sleeve R30 will match the style of the W30, protect you and make it easier to don and doff your suit too.
If you normally struggle to get your hands or feet into your suit then Quick Gel is a water-based lubricant that helps you get into your suit and then disappears just as fast.
WaterProof have designed and delivered an extensive line of high-performance exposure protection with top-of-the-range materials and fabrics since 1984. Their suits are designed over a long time, often three to four years of design and testing in the Arctic to make sure that their suits are perfect for your needs.
WaterProof W30 Mens 2.5mm Shorty - Features
?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 temperatureClose.
?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.Close.
|Male or Female Fit|
?Wet suits are specifically cut for either men or women to provide a more comfortable fit.Close.
?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.Close.
?The type of neoprene is important to you and the environment with cheaper petroleum based neoprenes and hypoallergenic limestone based neoprenes that are better for the environment.Close.
?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.Close.
?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.Close.
?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.Close.
?The wrist seal is another important barrier to prevent water flowing freely in and out of the suit.Close.
