This revolutionary new 4-way stretch neoprene can stretch up to 250% of its original size. This provides huge advantages over wetsuits made from standard neoprene.

Hyperstretch suits are the ultimate for layering, their ability to be worn over other suits is unsurpassed. If you ever wished for a wetsuit that was as comfortable as a pair of well worn jeans... your wish has come true. How do I care for Hyperstretch Products?
In order to keep Hyperstretch in top condition you must treat it differently than other wetsuits.
1) You must not dry or store these products in areas where temperatures exceed 135F or in direct sunlight.
(The temperature in the trunk of a car on a hot day may exceed 180F.) High temperatures can damage these products as well as most all dive equipment.
2) Always dry Hyperstretch in the shade, Never machine wash or dry Hyperstretch.
3) The fabric which covers Hyperstretch is made from a special high stretch open weave which allows the neoprene to realize its full stretch potential. Henderson has selected a fabric which is the most durable in the high stretch category. However, it is very important to note that if this fabric is not treated properly it is susceptible to pulls, runs, snags, and pilling. Although runs, pulls, snags and pilling may make your wetsuit unsightly they will not interfere with the warmth and thermal protection. By following the tips below you can avoid many of the elements that could potentially damage your suit. Avoid contact with hook and loop fabric fastening systems commonly found on buoyancy compensators (Bc's).
Check your BC for rough edges and exposed hook fasteners before use.
