Orca Openwater Core Hi-Vis Wetsuit
The New 2021 Orca Core Hi-Vis is specifically designed for swimming and training in open water as safely as possible. It provides maximum visibility thanks to its orange panels. It also provides the thermal insulation needed to maintain an ideal body temperature. The use of 2 to 2.5 mm thick Yamamoto neoprene provides great freedom of movement for longer, more comfortable swimming.
To keep you as safe as possible in the water, this wetsuit has been designed with a high-visibility orange that will make you visible to boats and other swimmers, so you can easily be seen in the open water.
Yamamoto 39 neoprene is used together with Infinity skin2 high-end lining. This material requires between 45% and 35% less force to stretch than conventional neoprene.
The 2.5 mm Yamamoto 38 material is used in the torso and legs. This technology provides good thermal insulation and a good fit to the swimmer’s body, preventing the neoprene from separating from the skin and water flowing into the suit.
The Orca Core Hi-Vis wetsuit is also equipped with Orca’s ultimate seal collar. The combination of laser cutting on the neck and the inverse Velcro reduces friction, preventing any abrasion on the skin.
Surf Swim School Head Coach verdict:
This is a really popular wetsuit and it’s clear to see why. The wetsuit is constructed from Yamamoto neoprenes which are flexible and great quality. We particularly like the styling of this wetsuit as it is ideal for open water swimmers, particularly those swimming in the sea.
A lot of our swimmers use this wetsuit as their training wetsuit and race in something specific for their events. It is durable, a great price and most importantly, it is nice to swim in.
