Conditions of use of the 6/4/3mm Liquid Taped Thermal Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit
The 6/4/3 Liquid taped Thermal Hooded Chest Zip wetsuit has been designed for extremely cold-water temperatures. Tested and developed in Arctic conditions this extra warm wetsuit is manufactured to the highest quality.

Seams of the Liquid Thermal wetsuit range are triple glued, blind stitched and internally neoprene taped, with a flexible liquid taping applied to the outer seams of the wetsuit. This triple seam construction offers the best warmth and seam performance.
