Mares Flexa Scuba Diving Wetsuit Review

Overview

Mares Flexa is proud to show off that it has one of the best technologies available in wetsuits material designs – that design technology is the Trilastic. The Trilastic has been proven to be a highly intelligent stylistic material technology which combines three high-grade technology into the design of the Mares Flexa material.  In this Mares Flexa wetsuit review, we shall be discussing all the intricacies of this great diving suit while also highlighting its demerits.

The Flexa from Mares is a dynamic dive suit that has gotten rid of all the unnecessary bulk that most traditional wetsuits tends to have on. By reducing the bulk, the gear becomes very lightweight and extremely compact that it can fit into your scuba travel dive bag. With this lightweight feature of the Flexa, you have a gear that helps your buoyancy while diving in more ways than one.

Just so that this suit has the needed flexibility for scuba divers to exert enough freedom and dynamism while wearing it, there is a reasonably thin and flexible neoprene material for the exact requisite flexibility needed for the best diving experience. One other outstanding feature of this awesome dive wear is that it offers one of the best elasticity that is known in scuba diving wetsuit material technology. This flexibility makes you move more easily and have enough control of your body. Now, won’t you agree that this is an intelligent dive wear?

Moving on to the delivery of quality, Mares also introduced the BPS (Back Protection System). This innovation adds more neoprene layer to the back so that the diver has maximum protection and flexibility in that area. In the long run, this feature also adds some needed padding to the divers back when carrying a heavier tank.

To show that it meant business when designing this dive wear, Flexa employs the use of different layers of thickness for specific parts of the body. So, you have an intelligently designed gear at your disposal. Made from 100% ultra-stretch high-quality neoprene with unparalleled finish and attention to detail, the Flexa is not only intelligent in design, it is also dynamic delivery. Designed with a front zipper with smooth neoprene flap for better comfort and that also allows you to get in and off the suit without hassle.

Mares Flexa Wetsuit Review

The trilastic concept was born out of intelligence and superior stylistic technology. The concept offers versatility in a wide range of environments and transcends various water temperatures with minimal layering. Too much material in the wrong places can result in pointless bulk and unnecessary buoyancy. The idea is to minimize the thickness in the regions not requiring critical heat retention and making the suit easier to duff and don. Thinner more flexible neoprene gives you more comfort.

Overwhelmingly accepted, the materials for this concept start with a high tech plush material cushioning the skin and generating warmth, superior sealing materials and construction lock in the water that your body warms. A super elastic material properly placed provide a greater range of movement. This combination of materials, their arrangement in specific areas creates a line of intelligent wet suits.
