Is the the thickness on this product 1/2 mm or 5 mm? online it shows as .5 mm
This is 0.5 mm shirt.
1/2 mm and an excellent product if the one you get is titanium
Excellent as a rash guard for warm waters or as an undershirt for full wetsuit. Easy to get into and easy to wash.
Hope this helps, enjoy!
I have both the thermal and the thin skin. Thin skin is very light, like wearing a t shirt. The thermal material is thicker and warmer, as for saying 5mm, more like 1 mm.
.5mm warm water only. I suggest you buy one that has a drawstring at the bottom to keep it in place. that's my only complaint with this item. Otherwise its the usual great quality for Mares.
0.5 mm. This is best used in tropical water. 77F to 82F.
The shirt is a half mm or .5 mm. We love these thermo guard shirts for both snorkeling and as an extra layer under our 3 mm wetsuits.
It's 1/2 mm. It's a rash guard with a little insulation. Worked great in Aruba. Wouldn't work so great here in the PNW.
Sean, Thanks, how do you think this would be for 73-77 degrees F water temp in Galapagos?
In that temp range and keeping at the surface, I would go for a full suit. I have one at home that is 3mm body and 2mm sleeves and legs. That would be perfect. A) it keeps the jellys away from your skin, b) it keeps the sun off of your skin c) snorkeling does not restrict you to an hour so 2-3 hours submerged in 75 degree water and you're hypothermic.
It is 1/2 mm. I use it as a rash guard.
Thank you Scott. Would you recommend this for snorkeling in the Galapagos with water temps of 70-75 degrees F?
Aruba had 80 degree water and I was fine scuba diving in this shirt. Others were shivering with 3mm full suits on. Really depends on your cold tolerance. If you handle cold well and keep to the surface where the sun will warm you, then maybe. It's only a shirt, so not a lot of jelly fish protection here.
Yes for snorkeling it would be fine. It is a pretty tight fitting shirt so consider ordering one size larger than you otherwise might.
Is the .5 mm shown online 1/2 mm or 5 mm?
