Using 5/4mm thermoflex neoprene with a super smooth outer lining- the "Short John" wetsuit is designed to be worn underneath the 5mm or 7mm Proteus wetsuit to provide enhanced body core protection. With no zips- the Short John is both comfortable and practical- often actually making it easier to don the full wetsuit on top- thanks to the low friction exterior. Once both layers are on- the Hydrolock neck and glideskin wrist seals keep water flushing to a minimum- maximising the protection offered by the Short John/fullsuit combination.
Advanced Thermal Protection with state-of-the-art technical features, including the unique Hydrolock neck seal system, Hydrolock seams, Thermoflex construction and Glideskin wrist and ankle seals- the Proteus line offers thermal protection beyond that of usual wetsuits. The Short John is an innovative wetsuit designed to be worn underneath the full suit, providing enhanced thermal protection to the body core, improved donning of the suit, freedom of movement of the arms and greater comfort through zipless entry. With a 5mm or 7mm full suit this combination is ideal for diving in temperate water conditions.
Proteus 5/4mm Short-John Wetsuit is suitable for water temperatures +8 to +20°C as a part of a combo with a full wetsuit.
