Hollis Neotek Semi-Dry Scuba Diving Wetsuit Review
A number of scuba divers stay off the waters when it is frigid because of their wetsuit’s failure to keep them warm amongst other reasons. Well, no one should be deprived of the leisure and exhilarating experience of diving when you want to. In the light of this, Hollis came out with a dynamic diving suit that takes care of all such worries – it is the Neotek Semi-Dry. In this Hollis Neotek wetsuit review we shall carry out a deep analysis of its features and merits among other things.
The Neotek Semi Dry comes crafted with a hood to prevent heat loss through the head and is a mix of 6, 7, and 8mm neoprene. So you have no reason not to like this dynamic scuba diving suit. As a sophisticated gear, Neotek has multiple pockets on the suit so that you can keep all necessary accessories within reach anytime. There is also an extra spinal padding for better protection and all the seams are reinforced and double-glued for your maximum benefit.
Made with a fine blend of highly compression resistant and super-stretch neoprene material which is known to maximize great thermal protection and enhance the divers’ flexibility. In design, the front neck part is made with a water-tight G-Lock horizontal front zipper that makes the whole gear easy to get into and get off at while offering great protection against water getting in.
The Neotek hooded semi-dry delivers warmth and comfort in cold-water diving conditions. Constructed of a mix of neoprene thicknesses and a ThermaSkin inner liner, all seams are double-glued, butt-joined and blind-stitched, then covered by a unique liquid seam.
It is almost an irony that wetsuits can keep you wet yet warm. Well, Hollis Neotek prides itself as having designed and exclusive ThermaSkin inner liner that keeps divers partially dry even when scuba diving. You cannot deny that this is a good development in the series of dive suits around. What is more, you have a well-balanced mix of compression resistant and super-stretch neoprene that makes scuba divers have an unparalleled comfort and security assurance while diving.
It is correct that wetsuits traps in water and keep them warm so that you don’t get cold, but it is also important that they allow in just the right amount of water. That is exactly why Hollis Neotek semi-dry includes a front neck dam bib that is equipped with radical G-Lock horizontal front zipper, sealed arm and leg against leakage of water into the suit.
Given the quality of design and fabrication of the Neotek semi-dry, it is just about the best kit you can use when scuba diving in frigid water temperatures. I am not careful to say that the Hollis Neotek semi-dry wetsuit is so good that you can use it as a pro, beginner or casual diver.
