Aqua Lung Aquaflex Scuba Diving Wetsuit Review

Overview

A good wetsuit should be fitted on the scuba divers body, nothing other than this is acceptable. Although that is how it should be, many of the wetsuits around today still find it difficult to resolve that issue across varying scuba diver sizes. The Aquaflex has solved that problem with its custom easy-fit feature. This enables every diver to have a good experience every time they use the wetsuit. In this Aqua Lung Aquaflex wetsuit review, we will be looking at the intricacies and amazing qualities of this classy wetsuit.

Aquaflex neoprene material has always born the quality of triple flexibility which accounts for its super-stretch and perfectly fitting features. By this, the Aquaflex becomes a precise answer to every scuba divers’ prayer for a great wetsuit. Given the custom design from superior quality and fitting fabric, there need not be an ankle and wrist zipper – so this high-grade gear is without one. The reason for discarding the zippers is so that divers using the Aquaflex can have no reason to have water exchange and heat loss – as zippers are recorded to be avenues for such occurrence.

If quality standard is a crucial prerequisite for your choice scuba diving suit, then it will interest you to know that Aquaflex’s neoprene wetsuit is crafted specifically with the best standards in mind. This is confirmed by its three times stretch of standard neoprene. This advanced feature makes the Aquaflex very comfortable and good enough in flexibility for divers.

Considering the thickness of this wetsuit, Aqua Lung made it in 3 mm thickness which is the base measurement for standard neoprene layer, after which, the nylon outer and inner layer is added. Furthermore, you have the seams glued and blind-stitched, and then later sealed with liquid rubber. As an addition to the protection that this great wetsuit delivers, the glued seam also doubles as a protective function for keeping water out of your gear while sealing the warmth in.

Confirming the all-round quality that this great wetsuit delivers, Aqua Lung Aquaflex uses the same level of thickness across all areas of the wetsuit. On the Aquaflex, after the addition of the neoprene material, it is further layered with nylon outer and inner layers. Now, this makes the suit to be not only good looking but also delivering the best quality material that is highly resistant to tear and abrasion.

Furthermore, on the need for super protection for divers, the Aquaflex has spine pad that is integrated into the three-way zipper seal for the best and most secured diving experience ever.
