The concept of thermal insulation using neoprene:
By trapping a thin layer of water around the body, a neoprene wetsuit works in two ways:
1. The trapped water inside the wetsuit gradually warms up
. Heat transfer from the body decreases.
The wetsuit and the thin covering of water form a layer of insulation.
Neoprene is a closed-cell elastomeric foam with trapped nitrogen bubbles that have insulating properties.
The design of the DG500 dinghy/catamaran neoprene wetsuit is intended for cool and cold weather:
The Tribord DG500 neoprene wetsuit is made of 100% neoprene (thickness: 3mm) to ensure optimal thermal insulation.
All seams are sewn together with strong thread for this particular type of fabric and are glued to prevent water getting through the seams.
A neoprene strip is sewn under the zip to reduce the cooling effects of the water that may get through underneath.
In the event of moderate to strong winds and cold weather, also wear the Tribord S500 jacket.
The freedom of movement of the DG500 dinghy/catamaran neoprene wetsuit:
The Tribord DG500 dinghy/catamaran neoprene wetsuit has a cut and materials designed to make the movements and different positions of light sailing much easier.
The arms and chest piece consist of a different piece of fabric to make maneuvers and movements much easier.
The legs, buttocks and knees are also separate pieces to make sitting, crouching and changing sides in the boat much easier.
All the seams are stretch seams.
Neoprene reinforcements on the DG500 wetsuit on the knees, buttocks and thighs:
It has reinforcements from the knees up to the seat and thighs. The thickness is 7mm on the knees for added comfort.
The extra fabric works in two ways:
- to reduce the wear and tear of the neoprene in areas that are the most exposed to rubbing and chafing from the boat (deck fittings, rubbing strake, carpet, etc., depending on the supports)
- to reduce the inconvenience of this rubbing and chafing on the knees, buttocks and thighs for the user, who is wearing the suit and is active on the boat
Construction of the neck of the DG500 dinghy/catamaran neoprene wetsuit:
The neck finish and height has been developed to limit the sensation of discomfort from the neoprene and irritation on even the most sensitive skin.
However, not all skin types react in the same way: in this case, we recommend that you wear a top under the wetsuit to reduce sensitive rubbing and chafing.
Developed and tested by our teams in Hendaye (France).\nTested by 47°Nautik nautical bases (Gulf of Morbihan, Brittany - France) during the 2016 season.
Foam : 100.0% Rubber - Chloroprene - Neoprene\r\nLining : 100.0% Polyester cationic
Once dry, store on a hanger away from direct sunlight.\nRinse with fresh water to remove salt that will deteriorate the neoprene and the zips.\nAvoid direct heat sources. \nHand wash recommended.
