2009 Pryde 3000 5/4/3 Drysuit
3000 5/4/3 Drysuit - Construction Details:
Horizontal dry zip across back and shoulders Industry leading "Dynat" waterproof zipper across the back shoulder of wetsuit.
Dura-Mesh (on lower body). Sealed or 'closed-cell' outer rubber surface with a standard nylon stretch lining. Water runs off mesh faster than standard neoprene - cutting down wind-chill.
Apex-Mesh (on upper body). The top-performance, closed-cell H-Foam. Soft and highly flexible with an embossed micro-texture for added durability.
Glued and Blindstitched Seams An efficient, water-tight seam created through a triple gluing process in conjunction with a blind stitch that does not fully penetrate the rubber. The technique allows precise curved seams and facilitates a snug, anatomically correct fit.
Hotcell (on Inside Chest Panel ) Lightweight, quick drying polypropylene insulation. The cellular structure traps an insulating layer of warm water next to the skin, keeping the core temperature up.
High collar for warmth and waterproofing.V-cut neck panel designed for maximum flexibility.
Double wrist and ankle cuffs Double cuffs at the wrist and ankles to keep the heat in and the water out.
Reinforced crotch A durable layer of latex reinforcement that resists harness wear.
Embossed Knee Pads Durable and flexible latex knee pads.
