Waterproof W8 7mm Wetsuit Men’s – Front Zip
A HIGH-PERFORMANCE FRONT-ZIP WETSUIT
The Newly designed Waterproof W8 7mm Wetsuit Men’s Front Zip, a high-performance wetsuit. Similar in design and fit as the W7 wetsuit but is equipped with a front zip instead of a back zip. A cutting-edge Swedish design with all the high-end features and characteristics of a Waterproof suit. W8 is, like all models in our Neoflex series, made of incredibly soft, flexible and comfortable four-way super-stretch neoprene.
The W8 is also equipped with the WaterDam, our unique solution that prevents water of streaming down your neck and spine when moving your head. Our double Zipper Seal System behind the front zipper reduces the water flow through the suit to a minimum. Double seals with zippers at the arms and legs add comfort and easy donning/doffing. The thermal lining makes the suit soft, warm and comfortable.
The suit has two anchor straps with anti-slip for your computer, tough Duratex panels on the seat, elbows and knees for abrasion protection, anti-slip surfaces over the shoulder and waist and our newly designed soft Aramid (Kevlar®) kneepads. The two streamlined, easy-to-use and flexible pockets have space to hold a spare mask, SMB, deco tables or other things you might want to bring.
All zippers are equipped with EasyGrip for easy opening and closing. W8 has the same elegant black and grey colour scheme as the other models in the Neoflex series, colours that makes a great combination with all your other dive gear. Our Neoflex series is manufactured with the best high-grade materials and technologies available – for maximized durability and extended use.
The new W8 is manufactured with the highest grade materials and technologies available to maximize durability to keep the W7 in action longer.
At Waterproof, we believe that making lasting products is the most powerful incentive for minimizing our environmental impact.
We use JAKO limestone neoprene in an effort to make our wetsuits as sustainable as possible, as well as plastic-free packaging to keep our oceans clean.

Rinse your suit after each dive with freshwater, carefully removing sand and salt from the zipper. Wash your suit occasionally with mild soap. Other cleaning products may only be used if authorized by Waterproof.
When changing, avoid standing on the wetsuit and avoid sharp objects. Dry your suit in the open shade on a hanger, away from direct sunlight.
Do not store your suit for extended periods hanging on narrow hangers, as the suit material may become stressed where it passes over the hanger. Use extra-wide hangers specially designed for wetsuit storage (WP Hanger Link). Suits should never be stored folded, as it may create permanent creases.
Store the suit away from sources of heat and away from sources of UV radiation (mainly sunlight), as both of these may degrade the materials more rapidly.
