In a perfect world, wetsuits would be seamless. Until then, the goal is to make seams as light, flexible, durable, and impermeable to water as possible. While each brand has its own lingo, there are four basic seam constructions on the market: flatlock; glued and blind stitched (GBS); glued and blind stitched with taping; and liquid rubber seam seal.
Flatlock - A durable, breathable, and economical seam construction where two panels of neoprene are overlapped and stitched together using a flatlock stitch. Flatlock seams are often found on warmer water suits and neoprene tops where absolute waterproofing is not critical or necessarily desired.
UPF 50+ - Blocks more than 98% of harmful UVA/UVB radiation from the sun. The best possible UPF (UltraViolet Protection Factor) rating for any fabric on the market.
6oz Premium Stretch Technology - Lightweight, comfortable 4-way stretch that wicks away moisture to keep you mobile in the water for superior unrestricted movement.
Tight Fit - Tight, snug rash guard fit for the best in-water performance.
Temperature Guide - For use as a guide only. Many factors beside water temperature can influence how warm or cold you are in the water - air temperature, session length, wind speed, etc. Your individual preferences come first when choosing your wetsuit, gear and accessories.
