Oceanic Full Length Wetsuit Ladies Med Large (14)

|
This is an excellent wetsuit and in my opinion one of the best ever made. It is no longer made but I have added text below of the review when it was launched. This appeared on Divernet I have taken photos of the ankle seals to show they are intact and in good condition and also the knee pads so you can see that has not been worn much. This suit is practically new. We also have a shortie to go with this which is also on sale as a separate item All velcro fastenings, zips and seals are in excellent conditionPlease note it has the our name written inside but it can t be seen when worn. This is a full length wetsuit in 5mm.In keeping with modern wetsuit design, this suit has contoured knees and elbows with high-stretch neoprene in areas at the back of the knees, the underarms and the crotch. This means that it does not feel so restricting. There is heavier-duty material at points of wear such as the shoulder pads of the jacket, and there are rubberised knee-pads too. For extra warmth, the spine pad and kidney areas are of double thickness and the neoprene has a titanium layer both to the inner and outer face to add to its insulation properties. The construction seems to be of high quality. For example, all the seam joints on the inside are reinforced with 25mm discs. This suit looks unlikely to fall apart too quickly. A thick suit can feel cold when water flushes through it, but to prevent this, there are seals at the ankles, covered by a zipped seal. The Shadow hood is designed to integrate fully with the rest o fthe suit and has a smooth skin seal long enough to mate with the collar and top seals of the one-piece base layer. A vent at the top lets out any exhaled air gathered by the hood. I like to have my arms and legs covered when I dive. In fact, fully dressed with all the options, there is around 15mm of neoprene down your spine. I felt that I would have been confident enough to use it in the sea around the coast of Britain, provided there was someone standing by with a warm towel when I took it off! The boots, which have rubber-covered toe-caps, are also designed with ankle seals and these integrate with the ankle seals of the one-piece suit. In this way Oceanic has almost entirely done away with water flushing through. I had some reservations about these boots when I first saw them because I felt I would never be able to get my big feet through the small opening. My fears were unfounded, because they proved sufficiently stretchy and became the first zipless boots I have ever worn successfully. The Shadow suit can be summed up in one word -flexibility. It is both extremely flexible to wear and gives you the flexibility to wear exactly the right amount of insulation for any conditions that you might encounter. Of course, its not a substitute, in British waters,for a good drysuit!PLEASE NOTE THIS IS FOR THE FULL LENGTH SUIT ONLYPlease also note that it has our name written on the inside of the suit but this is not seen when being worn. It should be possible to remove the wordsDelivery to UK addresses only
