The Mares 2nd Skin Shorty Wetsuit 1.5mm for Men is made with Metalite, which has heat reflecting and heat retaining properties, this shorty is best worn underneath the steamer. Extremities are made in GlideSkin, and together with the neck custom closure and the 0.5mm hood create an extremely water-resistant shorty. It can also be used by itself for snorkeling. Thickness: 1.5mm.
WETSUITS TECHNICAL ICONS
THERMO PLUSH: 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.
SPINE PAD: 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.
DOUBLE CONE: 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 the upper cone, thus
providing an incomparable seal.
CUSTOM CLOSURE: This neck closure system allows for the easy customization of neck fittings. Beginning this year, Mares provides a
complete new style of velcro tag molded in rubber, to minimize snagging of the plush or neoprene. Back and front zips with skin-on-skin
zipper seals for a superior water barrier.
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.
TITEX ZIPS: Both Mares Isotherm and 2ndSkin use a TIZIP high strength 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.
