Click HERE for website and prices. Colour of the suit is Black with Yellow PowerSeam We’ve made the best even better. Trusted to deliver the most advanced levels of performance, the all-new Drylock features all-new TD3 Th3rmoDry – the ultimate neoprene, our warmest, lightest, and driest system yet – and FusionWeld seams for a virtually stitch-free, watertight construction. A waterproof zipper plus exclusive warmth, stretch, and fit innovations make the Drylock a must-have for surfers seeking only the best. ENTRY SYSTEM WATERPROOF DRYLOCK ZIP Front entry attached at the right shoulder to keep more water out; with a waterproof zipper, SmoothSkin hem seal, pull cord/barrel lock combo, and a snap lock to keep zipper pull in place. CROSSOVER NECK ENTRY Overlapping inner front and back neck panels (underneath the zipper flap) stretch to allow extra wide, step-in-through-the-neck entry. MATERIALS TD3 TH3RMODRY New! The ultimate neoprene, Th3rmoDry is a 3-part combo of our most premium materials: Inner Quick Dry Lining + lightweight, ultra-stretchy, ultra-soft V Foam + outer Quick Dry Fiber. An extra-plush, diamond patterned Quick Dry Lining traps core warmth in the chest. With fast drying technology inside and out, plus the best foam available, Th3rmoDry is the warmest, lightest, and driest system yet. Available exclusively in the Drylock and Revolt fullsuit series. QUICK DRY FIBER Fast drying, hydrophobic outer lining promotes maximum warmth. V FOAM The most lightweight, premium foam available; significantly lighter, stretchier, and softer than standard foams. AIRPRENE Core layer of air-chambered, insulating neoprene that traps body heat for optimal heat retention; ideal for chest panels and hoods where the greatest warmth is required/generated. QUICK DRY LINING More lightweight inner lining with faster drying time; made from recycled polyester fibers. ULTRASTRETCH NEOPRENE Comfortable, lightweight neoprene with softer foam and a tighter weave textile for less water absorption and better durability. TEXTURE SKIN Texture embossed rubber that provides excellent wind resistance; ideal for outer chest panels hoods, and other areas that would otherwise lose warmth quickly. CONSTRUCTION FUSIONWELD The most durable, stitch-free, maximum all-way stretch seam construction. A glued seam is heat fused with a durable composite outside and seam taping inside for a fully leakproof seal. FUSION SEAM TECHNOLOGY Inner waterproof stretch Fusion taping fuses seams together; used primarily in the upper body where maximum flexibility is required. PRESSURE BONDED SEAMS A glued & blindstitched seam using pressure to bond panels together for a highly durable yet still flexible seam; finished with inner taping for comfort; used primarily in the lower body. GLUED & BLINDSTITCHED SEAMS A fully sealed, maximum stretch seam construction that keeps water out. Neoprene panels are glued and pressed together, then blindstitched (needle doesn’t fully penetrate neoprene, keeping water out). Can be finished with seam taping for added stretch, durability, and comfort. DRYLOCK WRIST SEALS Exclusive “donut seal” construction keeps water out and forms a snug, comfortable seal. NEXSKIN SEALS A thin band of liquid neoprene (“NexSkin”) in the inner wrists and/or ankles forms an excellent seal, and helps minimize flushing. FIT 3D KNEES Extra pre-bent, extra contoured knees for maximum flexibility and comfort. CONTOURED NECK Comfortable collar design, with a slight lower contour in the front for a better feel. LESS SEAM = MORE STRETCH Smarter product design means minimizing seams to maximize stretch. Any seams used are always pre-bent and contoured for a truly engineered fit. DURAFLEX KNEE PANELS Contoured, durable panels that stretch with you.
