Microprene 1.5mm material is an ultra thin, 180% stretch Thermoprene that is superior as a base layer, but is also a good choice for any tropical environment. It boasts the same basic characteristics as thicker cuts of nylon II Thermoprene, providing outstanding insulating ability relative to its size and a high level of elasticity for a flexible fit. Wearing Microprene under a thicker wetsuit is like super-charging your exposure gear. The extra layer of insulation helps create a more effective water barrier to significantly reduce water transfer. It also adds a minimal amount of buoyancy, helping divers keep their weight belts as light as possible.
When worn alone, Microprene provides benefits similar to that of a Lycra skin suit. It's warmer than a skin suit, but lightweight enough to be comfortable on the surface, where it protects from harmful UV rays. Suit has a #10-YKK back zipper entry with zipper tab leash for easy donning and doffing. The jumpsuit also comes equipped with Freedom Flex knee pads, Lycra trim on wrists ankles and neck, an adjustable collar and all seams are flat-lock stitched for comfort.
The rubber utilizes limestone based polychloroprene reducing the dependency on oil and oil derived chemicals for a more environmentally friendly manufacturing process. Suit is available in multiple sizes, and is covered by head to toe 12 month limited warranty with a 120 month limited warranty on the zipper.
This product has a limited warranty of 60 months.

Really comfy alone as a skin as well as under a full suit for really cold water. Easy on and off. Looks great and very well made!
