The MANERA SEAFARER 5.3mm will provide everything you’re looking for in a reliable winter partner. Only the arms and shoulders are built in 3mm to offer more stretch on the upper body.
The SEAFARER brings you back to the essentials of what makes a good wetsuit, nothing more, nothing less: warmth, comfort, durability. It’s a no-nonsense wetsuit with MANERA’s renowned fit and construction.
If you are looking for a high-performance wetsuit at an affordable price, this is the right choice.
Some areas are very sensitive to friction, tensions and tearing. All MANERA wetsuits have been designed with a demanding brief including:
- Avoiding seams in tensions area, to maximize flexibility and strength.
- Making sure the seams are stretched vertically and not sideways.
- Removing seams from friction areas, which avoids rash and increases stretch capacity.
- Reinforcing strategic parts and panels right where it needs to be.
Designed in 3D
When the industry standard is to develop 2D patterns and try to fit it on a 3D body, MANERA decided to break new ground and take the opposite direction. They use computer design to model good-fitted gloves in 3D, then they employ an innovative software that converts it into a precise 2D pattern for the factory. It creates a natural, second-skin fit that makes the MANERA range stand out.
Sealing prints make the ankles and wrists stiffer. It has a joint role that keeps the water away and maintains the arms and legs panels in place.
The different neoprene layers are fused on the tips of arms and legs to make it thinner and more aesthetic. It protects the inside neoprene foam (AIR FOAM) by covering it.
The neoprene layers are glued together and then “blind-stitched” (the needle does not go through the neoprene layer completely). In addition to being 100% waterproof, this type of stitching offers a high level of flexibility.
The Triplex SEAFARER is designed to be reliable and efficient. These three materials brought together provide everything you need in a good wetsuit: Warmth, flex, comfort.
- Re-flex skin / Protection
- S-foam / Insulation
- X10D + / Warmth & flexibility
The X10D fabric not only provides maximum stretch and lightness, but also a smooth, silky feeling on the skin. The X10D fleece offers good thermal insulation all around the chest and is 22% lighter than a classic jersey, which provides a great comfort and lightness on the water.
A good fit means everything
- Warmth: No water entry, no air pocket.
- Durability: The neoprene is only stretched when moving.
- Comfort: No over tight areas, comfortable armpits/crotch.
- Style: Folds will never be fashionable.
