Many wetsuits and wetsuit accessories like boots, gloves, and hoods will use at least some smooth skin neoprene. This neoprene has a rubbery finish that repels water and wind, while absorbing warmth from the sun and trapping in extra body heat. Cold water wetsuits feature smooth skin in the chest panel and the lower back (over the kidneys) which greatly increases the overall warmth of a wetsuit, especially on a windy and sunny day.
Elastic, midweight, long-lasting Neoprene. Laminated on one side with a durable, abrasion resistant, soft polyester/nylon-jersey that makes the surface more comfortable and protects the neoprene from mechanical stress. The other side has no jersey and a smooth, closed surface so that it is slip-resistant and does not soak water. Neoprene is a synthetic rubber filled with many small gas(air)-bubbles. It is 100% waterproof, insulating, has crosswise stretch. Ideal for watersports, bags, laptop-cases etc.. Can be glued or sewn.
Please note: Neoprene is delivered in sheets (app. 130 x 110cm) with +/- 5% allowance in size.
