About Mares Flexa 8-6-5mm Men's One Piece Wetsuit, Black/Gray

The Flexa family is the highest expression of Trilastic. Flexa uses different thickness for different areas of the body, 100% ultra-stretch high quality neoprene, with unparalleled finish and attention to detail. Back zip with smooth neoprene flap for more comfort and isolation. New rubber tag custom closure and back zip puller. Back Protection System (BPS): an additional layer of neoprene stitched in the back provides additional comfort and thermal protection.



Trilastic concept was born out of intelligence and superior stylistic technology. The concept offers versatility in a wide range of environments and transcends various water temperatures with minimal layering. Too much material in the wrong places can result in pointless bulk and unnecessary buoyancy. The idea is to minimize the thickness in the regions not requiring critical heat retention and making the suit easier to duff and don. Thinner more flexible neoprene, gives you more comfort. Overwhelmingly accepted, the materials for this concept start with a high tech plush material cushioning the skin and generating warmth, superior sealing materials and construction lock in the water that your body warms. A super elastic materials properly placed provide a greater range of movement. This combination of materials, their arrangement in specific areas creates a line of intelligent wet suits.

The BPS takes inspiration from the Mares BCD line. By adding a wide additional neoprene layer in the lumbar region, the diver benefits in multiple ways. The added neoprene adds warmth to a critical area of the body. It also fills the empty space in the back that sometimes allows water to seep and move causing the diver to get cold faster. The added neoprene also adds padding and protection to the back when wearing a heavy cylinder system on the beach or boat deck.

Custom neck closure system allows for an easy customization of the neck fitting. Velcro neck folds in on itself when needed to eliminate snagging of the plush lining or neoprene. Flexa has a back zipper with skin-on-skin zipper seal for superior water seal. Supratex Knee Pads, protection made of anti-scratch polyurethane not only looks sharp, but is engineered for high strength and protection without compromising flexibility. The linear design moves in line with your body while still guarding this high wear area.

The internal thermo plush lining is soft, smooth, durable and allows increased freedom of movement, guaranteeing extreme mobility. Its refined finish keeps you warmer yet, prevents the suit from retaining water promoting fast drying between and after diving. The Flexa 8, 6, 5 mm neoprene Trilastic suit comes in 6 sizes and has a 24 month limited warranty.

    Comments about Mares Flexa 8-6-5mm Men's One Piece Wetsuit, Black/Gray:

    Warm, flexible and comfortable as advertised; however, the neck seal is poorly designed, with the Velcro closure either too tight or too loose. Too loose causes cold water intrusion down back of neck, and if inverted exhaust bubbles fill suit with air. To combat this, have to cinch Velcro closure quite tight, which causes chafing and restricted circulation. To overcome, I'm using a 3mm vest underneath and a custom-made 1.5mm neck gaitor, plus running hot water which helps push the cold out. Also altered swimming pattern a bit to stay upright more. Could be a really great suit if it were instead front-entry with a real neck seal.

          Suit is very easy to don. The plush interior makes it slide right on. The product is slightly different than picture. The designs,and it looked like a front zipper? All in all I am very satisfied with the quality for the price.

          Questions about this item:

          Leandro M  Hi, I am confused about what side I should get, because on some size charts I found for Mares, my waist would fit on XL, even tough I'm very thin. I don't know if I measured it wrong. I measured myself and came up with this: Height - 179cm/ 5'10 1/2'' Weight - 72kg/159lbs Chest - 97cm/38.19'' Waist - 87cm/34.25'' Hips - 87cm/34.25'' So, what size would fit me best? 3 or 4? I think these are the sizes that would fit me best.
          IGNACIO F  I will say medium , i'm 6'0" n 220 lbs , the x-large fits like a glove. Plus you could always exchange for another size (no shipping) there pretty good at. For the price you can't beat it. This is an excellent wetsuit.
          Shopper  I am 5'8. 195 lbs. 43 " chest. what size should I get?
          IGNACIO F  Large, I'm 6'0" n 220 lbs and XL fits PERFECT.
          Cedric H  I am considering running a winter mud race that will be very cold weather. It will be in and out of water. Can you manuveur in this suit? Granted I won't feel like sprinting anywhere in the cold weather anyway. Just wondered how walking or slow jogging would be in this suit? Also, do they sell a hood for this suit as well? thanks
          Cedric H  Thanks for the response. The mud race is tough mudder and the temperature could be 30 or it could be 70 it just depends. You never know about Kentucky. The water will be cold but we will just be in and out of water the whole time. It is a 13 mile mud race. As far as shoes I will just be using normal shoes with socks because of the running and distance. I will probably look for gloves and headgear. Just not sure if I want compression stuff or wetsuit stuff. If the temperature is above 50 I will not use the wetsuit. If it is below 50 I probably will. Last year it was around 40 degrees. I ended up picking up a 4/3 full body wetsuit no hood front zip off eBay for 85 dollars. It is very tight and extremely warm...in the house that is. I have not tried it in cooler weather yet but I can imagine it will be very hot.
