About Aqua Lung SolAfx 8/7mm Men's Wetsuit, Black/Charcoal

Say good-bye to the cold and slide into a SolAfx today. Liquid seam technology enhances the durability and integrity of the glued and sewn seams, and lower back pad fills void in lower back to keep water out and you warmer.

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 kneepads are constructed of several independent panels that allow stretching with the Aqua Flex material hot new graphics are fresh and exciting.

Comments about Aqualung Aqua Lung SolAfx 8/7mm Men's Wetsuit, Black/Charcoal:

This is by far the best cold water wetsuit I own. I am not going to sit here and tell you it is easy to put on, or you will be able to move or maneuver like you had a 3MM wetsuit. Once you put this wetsuit on your ability to maneuver will be cut by one third.
With that said, the integrated hood eliminates the bulkiness of a conventional hood or water entry due to zippers and seams. I personally used this wetsuit to dive in 44F - 46F degree water and I was comfortable all four 45-52 minute dives.

So, know that when you wear this wetsuit you will be wearing the best protection available without having to wear a dry suit. My advice is make sure your buddy gives you a hand when it comes to putting on the upper half of the suit to ensure you are not going to have unnecessary bulkiness.

    Comments about Aqualung Aqua Lung SolAfx 8/7mm Men's Wetsuit, Black/Charcoal:

    I clean hulls for a living and up until I bought this suit I froze in the winter months with the water temp in the 50's. Since donning this suit I can stay in 6 to 8 hours with no warmth issues. In fact if I am scrubbing hard I find myself letting water in so I can cool down a bit. I love this suit!

      I have used this wetsuit in California for 500+ dives so far over 3+ years. I usually have to get a new wetsuit after 6 months to a year. I'm about to buy another - the first time I've ever bought the same wetsuit twice.

          Comments about Aqualung Aqua Lung SolAfx 8/7mm Men's Wetsuit, Black/Charcoal:

          This suit is the bomb! if you are into cold water diving and are not ready/willing to go the dry suit route it provides a very toasty fairly easy to put on/off match with fairly spot on sizing (I'm 6'1" 250lbs 46"chest and 40" waist and the 3XL fits just about perfect). It's great prior to the first thermocline (almost too warm) and after the first thermocline it's perfect... you don't feel any of the cold until you hit the second thermocline (below 45' in Minnesota) and then it's just a pleasant bit of cool... not cold at all.
