Please note that while minor pressure tears are not covered under our warranty, they can be easily repaired with neoprene cement. Wetsuits are designed for functionality and may experience natural wear and tear over time. Keep in mind that wetsuits are not dry suits; they are meant to get wet during use. Please note that these tears do not affect the wetsuit's functionality. Due to this nature, we do not accept returns for this product.
The product that kicked off the Stingray brand! This wetsuit is unique in every sense of the word. Unparalleled flexibility coupled with the unique Stingray buoyancy panel, makes for a super fast wetsuit that does not compromise on strength and quality. This suit has been tested by Olympians for speed and performance, novice swimmers for comfort and Navy SEALs for quality and durability. It passed the test.
The 5mm Stingray shaped chest panel is designed specifically to give the right amount of buoyancy in the chest area to deliver the perfect body position. The angular design also significantly aids body rotation.
Yamamoto Glide Skin throughout with a highly hydrophobic titanium coating so you will flow through the water. It is also a super flexible neoprene.
The 5mm Air Tech technology is used in the Stingray chest panel, hips and thighs. The tiny air pockets provide additional buoyancy where needed, but also significantly reduces weight.
0.8mm underarms and groin are the thinnest on the market, providing unparalleled flexibility when swinging your arms and running.
Using the same 0.8mm in the neck alleviates the common choking sensation, but lets in no more water than a much thicker neck piece.
The large 1.5mm shoulder panels cover the entire upper chest and shoulders making it incredibly flexible when swinging the arms, and much easier to breath comfortably. No more panic attacks!
2mm neoprene is used in the arms for medium warmth, with 4mm on the back and 3mm on the side, to give the suit the perfect balance.
Legs below the knee are 2mm to allow for some leg kick, but the 5mm above the knee will not let them sink.
Finally, a small but important touch. The rough velcro side is on the wetsuit neck not the flap, so this avoids the chances of chaffing.
