It's not diving in cold water that divers dislike, it's being cold while diving. Aqua Lung is ready to assist with its new SolAfx cold water wetsuits. This across-the- chest zipper, hood-attached suit is made completely out of our four-way stretch, Aqua Flex 8mmand 7mm neoprene so you can be warm and comfortable at the same time. Say good-bye to the cold and slide into a SolAfx today.

Torso is made of 8mm, four-way stretch Aqua Flex neoprene while the legs and sleeves are made of 7mm Aqua Flex. These are the thicknesses of the base neoprene before the nylon gets added. The attached hood not only prevents cold water from entering the neck, it also features "Vent G2" technology that allows trapped regulator exhaust bubbles to exit while keeping cold water out.

The "Plasmaloc" zipper has tighter tolerances and a unique integrated tooth design that make the zipper more water resistant than most competitors' models. A water dam covers the neck and shoulders to add another level of thermal protection against any water ingress through the zipper. "Skin-in" gasket seals in the forearms and calves minimize water entry through the sleeves and legs. The kneepad is constructed of several independent panels that allow stretching with the Aqua Flex material hot new graphics are fresh and exciting. Suit is Black with red trim.

Comments about Aqualung Aqua Lung SolAfx 8mm Women's Wetsuit, Black/Aqua:

I am a complete new diver fresh out of open water and was looking for my first wetsuit. I have no female dive friends to ask about wetsuits and men at local dive shops know only a little about the female form. My boyfriend actually found this wetsuit and purchased the male equivalent and fell in love with it as we both hated the farmer-john 2 piece setup we had in our OW class. I heard the magic 8mm number as our local dive spot has 54 degree waters and I was sold.

I used the size chart and it seemed to be true to form. I'm 5'3'' and 120lbs and purchased a size 8. Fits me like it was custom made.

What is so great is you can don your own wetsuit and hood without your buddy's help. The zipper is a bit tricky at first, but after a couple of times you get use to it really quick.

Comments about Aqualung Aqua Lung SolAfx 8mm Women's Wetsuit, Black/Aqua:

This is a great wetsuit. I live in New England so I dive in 50-60 degree water. This suit keeps me warm and toasty! It's well-made and very user friendly (i.e. it's easy to get into and out of). I see myself using this suit for years to come!

Comments about Aqualung Aqua Lung SolAfx 8mm Women's Wetsuit, Black/Aqua:

After getting in and out of this suit three times my wife loved it. She struggled the first two times but after that she had no problem. It kept her warm on multiple dives in 60 degree water. She is looking forward to trying it in Puget Sound.
