SEAM TECHNOLOGY

The seams are the skeleton of a wetsuit. They determine the strength, flexibility and watertightness of its construction, so it’s an important factor when selecting the right suit for you.

Glued & Blindstitched construction is triple glued and single blind stitched seams. The stitching on Triple Glued and Blind Stitched seams only partially penetrates the neoprene, which reduces water entry, keeping you warmer, longer.
