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 water trapped inside the wetsuit gradually warms up
2. 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 DG100 Light dinghy/catamaran neoprene wetsuit is intended for cool to warm weather:
The Tribord 100 Light neoprene wetsuit is made with genuine neoprene to ensure good thermal insulation.
The parts of the body most exposed and susceptible to wind and cold (torso and shoulders for wind, lower body for water) are protected by neoprene (thickness: 0.03 in).
In cool and/or slightly windy weather, wear the Tribord S100 sailing anorak on top.
Freedom of movement of the DG100 Light neoprene wetsuit:
The Tribord 100 Light neoprene wetsuit has a cut and materials designed to make the maneuvers and different positions of light sailing much easier.
The arms and torso are made of a super-stretch Lycra material to make maneuvers easier.
The legs 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 DG100 Light wetsuit on the knees, buttocks and thighs:
The Tribord 100 Light neoprene wetsuit features reinforced knees (down to below the knees), seat and thighs.
The additional 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 DG100 Light 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 everyone's skin reacts 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 design teams in Hendaye, France.\nTested by the 47°Nautik sailing school (Gulf of Morbihan, Brittany - France) during the 2016 spring and summer 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 could deteriorate the neoprene and the zips.\nAvoid direct sources of heat. \nHand wash recommended.
