We don't do wetsuits. We do A wetsuit. The goal was to make an attainable high-end suit that serves the PNW surfer.
Staying this focused on building the one suit we would use 95% of the year allowed us to get specific on the features and materials that best suited us. (pun intended)
If better ingredients can make better pizza then it can probably do the same for your wetsuits. That's what we're going for anyway.
Yamamoto Rubber. This stuff is the foundation of a top of the line wet suit. It's a big deal. This material is super stretchy and has one of the silkiest inside liners around but it has a more impressive trick. Yamamoto rubber is 99.7% water impermeable. This ability to allows Yamomoto rubber to stay lighter, be stretchier, and keep you warmer. And that's how it has earned a world-wide reputation for being the best wetsuit rubber ever.
With the worlds best rubber as a foundation we added a couple key features to make our dream suit a bit more durable, and a tad warmer.
Seams: ALL seams are double-blind stitched, glued, then reinforced with our red neoprene taping. This allows for stronger seams and can double the life of the suit. In an effort to consume less, we figured that the more durable these suits can be the fewer you need to buy. This is good for your wallet and the planet.
Insulation: Without faking a breakthrough technology or giving it a magical marketing name we've added a Hexagonal Polyamide Insulation to the chest and back for added core warmth. This combo of insulation and Yamomoto Rubber makes for a 4/3 suit that will outperform your expectations and keep you warm nearly year round. Designed for the 50-65 degree water we get here in the PNW.
YKK Front Entry zipper with zipper stay snap
Key Pocket located on the lower leg
Open cell neck line.
Ottoman Reinforced knee pads.
Subtle branding. (We don't need to brag. We figure you'll do that for us if the suit is everything we set out to make. And it is.)
Sizing: These suits can feel like they run a bit big, and Yamomoto Rubber can break in a bit as you wear it. We suggest buying the snuggest (if that's a word) size you're comfortable putting on. The silky lining, and stretchiness will make this easier than other snug suits you may have worn in the past.
I'm 6' 190lbs, and usually wear a large but found a medium in this material works best after break-in.
This summer we'll have a few demo days if you want to test it out first. Follow us on insta for those announcements.
