New Wetsuits 2017


Wetsuits 2017 2017 sees Mares enriching its wetsuit line with the revamp of two already established favorites, the Pioneer and the Flexa. The Pioneer has been restyled. This new and improved version maintains its characteristic rear zipper closure and is available in 7mm with blue details (featuring an ankle zip for facilitated donning), for colder waters, and 5mm with red details for more temperate waters. The suit offers maximum comfort and boasts a rear-positioned neck closure with anti-abrasion Velcro to prevent damage to the neoprene, a rub-resistant zip and a large instrument grip on both wrist areas. The Pioneer is accompanied by its own hood which optimizes comfort, compensation and air release in the ear and upper area. The suit also includes a convenient hood keeper clip on the right leg. The Pioneer is not Mares’ only wetsuit proposal for 2017. The Flexa has been a firm favorite for many years, but we are always striving for ways to improve our offerings to the dive world. The new Flexa line of wetsuits and accessories represents an even more elite aesthetic and functional innovation. This re-working of the line is made up of 3 different wetsuit thicknesses and numerous accessories which enabling the diver to personalize their gear to suit their individual needs. All wetsuits are available in the Men's and She Dives versions: the blue 8-6-5 model (for cold water), the red 5-4-3 model (for temperate water) and the white 3-2-2 model (for hot water). All models are made in ultrastretch which guarantees easy donning and comfort. Other functional features include the remodeled back protection system which provides greater coverage against tank rubbing. Instrument grips are included on both wrists and the custom neck closure is now slimmer, lighter and softer with a “reverse closure” for fastening when the suit is open. It also includes anti-abrasion knee pads to guarantee longer duration of the suit. One of the most innovative elements of the new family is a spacious optional pocket which can be attached to the leg for all the Flexa models. As well as this, the Flexa Core, the shorty of the line has been updated, as have the Flexa Vest and Flexa Hood. We hope you enjoy the many new features which we have to offer this year. We are certain that they will satisfy even the most demanding divers. Nothing left to do but…just add water!
