Diving is a sport in which we stay underwater for quite a long time. This is why we need to take care to insulate our body properly to avoid discomfort or even hypothermia. Neoprene foam It fulfils this task perfectly – it provides us with thermal comfort and Neoprene wetsuit for diving allows you to stay underwater for a very long time. Particularly if it’s the right choice.

The foam owes its properties to a special material, which does not allow air or water to pass through it. Of course, such foam does not only serve to protect the wearer from heat, but also protects the body from abrasion, wind, sun or potential injury.

How to choose the right neoprene wetsuit?

We already know that foam performs its function best when it is properly selected. But what does this actually mean and how do we do it? Foams are available in many different models, and each one is slightly different from the others. First of all, size is very important. The ideal wetsuit must fit snugly but not restrict movement, so it’s a good idea to try it on. If it’s not possible, it’s enough to measure key areas of our body and choose the best size from the table. On this basis we will also be able to choose the right size of wetsuit for us.

Neoprene wetsuits The thickness of the material is also quite important when choosing a foam, as this fact indicates the thermal insulating properties of a particular foam. Depending on the thickness, different foams will perform differently at different temperatures. The foams also differ in length – You can buy long wetsuits, which are those with long legs and sleeves, and short wetsuits, which are those with short sleeves and short legs.

When it comes to choosing specific foams, a very wide range of options is offered by Camaro. The foams with thicknesses of 1, 2, 3, and 5 mm neoprene, the material from which they are made, are divided into many different series. The Camaro Alpha 5 mm series foams have very vivid colours and a very modern look. They are made of top quality neoprene – Yamamoto. Thanks to the use of this material, the wetsuits fulfil their function perfectly. They are extremely comfortable, soft and comfortable to wear. The inner terry cloth layer makes the wetsuits very warm. Zips at the sleeves and legs make it easy to put the suit on.

The Typhoon brand has an equally large selection of wetsuits in its range. It is a manufacturer from Great Britain who has many years of experience in producing water sports clothing. The offer consists of many models not only for adults, but also the range of wetsuits for children is very extensive.

Diving wetsuits for children

Neoprene wetsuits for children

Neoprene wetsuits for childrenIt is a great way to ensure the comfort of our children. Such wetsuits are also made of very soft neoprene, which does not let water or wind through, and therefore provides ideal thermal protection during water sports or simply playing in the water. Above all, these wetsuits are designed to protect the child from getting cold in wetsuits for children The wetsuits not only protect children in the water, but also against any abrasions, injuries or even sunburn. What’s more, the wetsuits keep children afloat, which is an additional safety feature.

Typhoon’s collection of children ‘s wetsuits will ideally meet the expectations of parents and children. A good fit of the wetsuit to the body is the most important point when choosing a foam. Usually wetsuits for the youngest users are 3 mm thick, which makes them suitable for water games in the backyard, but also at the swimming pool, on the lake or at the seaside. The foams also provide ideal protection from the sun. Typhoon’s collection of wetsuits includes short shorts and long wetsuits. Wetsuits should be selected according to the conditions in which our child will use them. Especially the water and air temperature.

Insulation systems

Neoprene elements to insulate the water sports enthusiast, especially diving, are a very important part of the outfit. It is extremely important to take care of your own thermal comfort underwater. Therefore, our equipment should include various diving foams and insulation underwater body-warming elements. The Camaro company offers many such items. The collection includes long-sleeved neoprene shirts, sleeveless waistcoats, short and long shorts, and several models of neoprene socks to keep feet warm and extra protected when using fins.

The ideal body warming is to fill every free space under the foam. The Camaro Titanium collection is a range of elements which can be freely combined with each other, depending on the conditions in the water. These products can also be used independently as swimming suits or clothing for all other water sports. They are also used successfully in winter by walruses.

Neoprene hoods

hood as a complement to the diving wetsuit Neoprene hoods are also one of the important warming elements during water sports. They perfectly protect the head from the cold and increase thermal comfort. Diving hoods offered by Othree are the perfect solution. They work well in a wide range of temperatures and are available in 3mm, 5mm and 7mm thicknesses to suit the water temperature. They are made of very flexible neoprene which ensures a tight seal.
