Representing a major step in wetsuit innovation, the Reactive 5mm uses Graphene OMNIRED, a responsive textile that warms the wearer using their own body heat. By tapping this heat-capturing technology, the Reactive can insulate for hours without skipping a beat. The body-responsive effects of Graphene, combined with the power of OMNIRED, allow divers to maximize their comfort on every dive. In fact, lab tests have shown a 5-degree Celsius average temp increase over the original OMNIRED Technology.
Fundamentally, Graphene is a one-atom-thick layer of carbon arranged in a hexagonal lattice structure. At room temperature, it’s one of the best conductors of thermal energy ever discovered. Materially, Graphene is strong, flexible, lightweight and, of course, highly conductive—all traits that are well suited for use in a wetsuit.
But we didn’t stop at the lining. In a step toward sustainable design, the Reactive is made from a clean limestone-based foam that minimizes pollution while performing at the same level (or higher) as petroleum-based alternatives. Dope-dyed fibers cut pollution and wastewater discharge in our textile operations, and water-based glue—rather than solvent—perform over the long life of your suit while sparing the air of unclean toxins during the production process
Extra-long 21" (53.3 cm) S-Lock2 back zipper with offset tooth design. Polyurethane (PU) coated zipper tape guards against water entry and skin-to-skin double internal sealing zipper flap for added warmth. For easy donning and doffing the zipper is equipped with a full-length puller with silicone print for easy grip and grip tab at base of the zipper to further increase ease of self-fastening the zipper. Extra-long 11" (28 cm) heavy-duty ankle zippers are also for easy donning. Armor Flex 2.0 highly flexible, durable, abrasion resistant 3-D kneepads; help protect this high wear area. The suit is built to fit right with an anatomically correct pattern for three-dimensional fit throughout. Comfortable contoured 5mm Glideskin collar with 360° hook and loop adjustment and skin-to-skin double 3mm Glideskin wrist and ankle seals with fused cut finished edges make this one great suit. The suits seams are glued for strength and durability. Suit is available in multiple sizes and colors.
