The REC45 Black Freediving Wetsuit by Oceaner, is an ideal wetsuit for recreational freediving, freediving training and spearfishing. (For competitive freediving see the equivalent Oceaner COMP45 Freediving Wetsuit)
The REC 45 is constructed of YAMAMOTO 45. This neoprene is extremely warm and tough with an ultra stretch lycra on the outside to provide superior durability. All Oceaner Freediving REC45 suits utilize a cellular skin inner that helps to increase positive thermal qualities, providing a warmer, more comfortable performance experience.
Yamamoto 45 is regarded as the highest quality material for Competitive Freediving and is used by multiple world record Freedivers such as Mandy-Rae Cruickshank, Martin Stepanek, Tanya Streeter, Alexey Molchanov and many other world champions.
Most currently available freediving wetsuits are constructed with a straight sleeve on the shoulder resulting in a tubular body with attached tubular arms. OCEANER suits use a Raglan Sleeve, a specific cut that provides a continuous shoulder curve from the base of the neck on down the arm providing a far more comfortable fit when the arms are in either down or over-head body position. This curvature also minimizes undesirable bunching of material around the shoulders when in a arm-up diving position
The hip length suit jacket is secured back to front with a Velcro clasped “Beaver Tail” This high use, high stress “tail” is constructed using once again a uniquely developed biothermic material to add strength and tear resistance where it is most needed. A 3 layer composite (bio/nylon/bio) in which 3 laminated layers create a nylon sandwich which provides the necessary strength without sacrificing all the stretch and thermal properties.
Rubber Seals ring the face, wrists, and ankles. These seals limit water flow to a extent that even after hours in the water the lube solution used to get into the suit will still be inside.
The REC45 comes in standard black but can be accented with white, blue, red, or gray coloured stitching
