Made of elastic ultraspan neoprene with special sealing at the arms and legs, every scuba diver that opts for the Playa is assured of warmth like no other. Because of the design of Cressi Playa, it makes a great ultralight diving suit for travelers on tropical vacations.
Although the Playa is a shorty-type suit, it is well suited for the enthusiast who requires a light protection from the cold, wind and sun. It is fabricated from a 2.5 mm thickened double-lined neoprene for the needed warmth around your chest and thighs when diving in tropical climates. Moreover, being a shorty, this wetsuit gives you greater freedom of movement underwater.
Taken, the Playa from Cressi is not your full-scale scuba diving kit for extremely cold waters, but it has been proven to be well-suited tropical dives where it delivers unreserved comfort and flexibility in high regards. For its capacity, the Cressi Playa has a very good core-warming capability that delivers on the promise of providing a good level of heat to your body when underwater. This is achieved more because all the seams on this suit are glued and sewn for reinforced strength and durability.
The suit is made from the famous Nylon 2 Neoprene material and has a heavy-duty YKK front zipper. It also provides added thermal protection with the advanced layering solution it delivers. Further on the promise of warmth and protection, the Cressi Playa comes kitted with High-stretch Ultra-span neoprene seal that is strategically positioned on the arm and leg. These continually reduce the influx of water into the suit while giving you a very good level of warmth required for an excellent diving session.
