By keeping a film of water around the body, the suit has a double effect:
1-The trapped water gradually warms up.
2 - Calorie exchanges drop.
The suit and film of water form an insulating layer.
Once a thin film of water is trapped between your body and the jacket, no more water is able to circulate thanks to the Inner Stop Water inside the sleeves.
The suit has 5 mm of neoprene on the chest to guarantee thermal protection.
4 mm on the sides and shoulders and 3 mm of Supratex on the sleeves, this extra layer has the comfort and ergonomics required for a canyoning suit
What is a wetsuit?
This type of suit is the most commonly found on the market. Its purpose is not to keep out the water, but rather to trap it to allow your body to warm it up to create a thermal buffer between yourself and the outside world.
Manufactured in neoprene - a rubber polymer filled with air bubbles - these wetsuits range from 0.5 to 7 mm thick.
As such, they constitute an excellent wetsuit because they are supple and adaptable.
Tips for looking after your canyoning suit?
1/ Soak the suit after each session in clean water outside and inside
2/ Use a bactericidal solution to sanitize it
3/ Rinse well in clean water
4/ Dry on a wide hanger in a shaded and well ventilated place. Be careful of the sun as it discolors the textile parts of the suit. The zips can be cleaned with a toothbrush.
Choose your size carefully
To fully enjoy the practical features of your suit, you must choose the right size. A canyoning suit must be very fitted and have no visible folds. When dry, it is normal for it to feel tight, this discomfort disappears as soon as the suit is wet. If you choose a suit that is too large, folds will form, will irritate your skin, and thermal insulation will be reduced (water ingress).
Try it before buying it
When we are in the water, we lose over half your bodily heat is lost through the body's extremities (feet, hands, head).
This is why we recommend the following accessories:
- in warm water and temperate water (>63°F) => 3 mm low neoprene socks - in cold water (54 - 63°F): 3 mm gloves - in very cold water (45 - 54°F): Neoprene jacket, gloves and hood.
