Super thin smoothskin wetsuits

Post by latexneoprene » Wed Dec 18, 2019 4:42 pm

Hey guys,

I came across apea wetsuits made for swimming pool that i am quite enkoying for a couple of months.

Those are really thin 1-2 mm and don't have buoyancy panel.

I have myself OMER umberto pellizari (1.5 mm thickness) also a CRESSI SWIM Glaros (2mm).
They other ones I tried them in shops :D

Do you guys have already experience with those ?

Cheers from Brussels, Belgium

And God created rubber, and he saw that it was good.

I would love to see the pictures, but they are not there.

I tried the Beuchat Zento at a shop. I like the thin and smooth material, but did not fit me. It feels different from thicker triathlon suits. The thinner rubber means the smooth outside is closer to your skin and you feel more sensations when you touch it.

They now have the Omer 1.5mm which I lusted for, but quite expensive. I would love to try the Cressi Glaros too, but is now discontinued. The bright metallic blue is a turn on.

What's your experience?

I checked out the Omer 1.5mm suit at a local dive shop. It's jet black and looked very nice. The material is nice and thin, a bit like sleeves on an Orca, but stretchier and darker. If only I could afford one.
