WARM QUICK-DRY LINING

This lining inside the wetsuits adds an extra layer of insulation. It also dries quicker and offers a comfortable, soft, warm and dry feeling when wearing the wetsuit.

All our fullsuits are made with a quick dry lining.
Depending on the wetsuit, the lining is either located from chest to knees or to ankles.
In order to optimize warmth and weight distribution, we use different linings on our wetsuits, according to their patterns and designs.
