The Orca Equip is ideal for those transitioning from the pool to open water, or unfamiliar with swimming in a wetsuit. 2-4mm premium quality SCS-coated Yamamoto 39-cell neoprene front panels ensure a range of motion normally associated with intermediate and top level wetsuits. A multi-stretch lining makes the suit incredibly flexible, (used in our Sonar Wetsuit).The Equip's Hydrostroke forearm panel has a distinctive silicone print, which catches the water through the pull phase of the stroke. 3-4mm Smooth Skin neoprene panels through the back to provide addition support in the water, and refinements to the waist panel extending it over the chest add buoyancy, The 2014 Equip's redesigned torso panel also provides better body positioning. Speed Transition panels on the calves aid transition times.
