5mm - 5/4mm Women's Full Wetsuits

Made for cold water, most 5/4mm full wetsuits have 5mm thick neoprene in the core body (chest and back and legs) with 4mm thick neoprene in the arms and shoulders. What makes a 5/4mm wetsuit more or less expensive is the amount of stretch in the rubber, the seam construction, and the lamination materials. 5mm wetsuits are made of 5mm thick neoprene throughout the entire wetsuit. If you are looking for extra mobility in a cold water wetsuit with thicker neoprene, we recommend looking for a wetsuit with a lot of stretch. The Henderson Thermoprene PRO is a great option with over 180% stretch.

5mm & 5/4mm Women's Full Wetsuits with Sealed (GBS) Glued and Blind Stitched Seams

Sealed 5mm & 5/4mm full wetsuits are made to keep you warmer in cold water temperatures 49 degrees Fahrenheit and warmer. 5mm & 5/4mm wetsuits can come in back zip designs, chest zip designs, and two piece front zip designs. The chest entry systems typically cost a little more because there is more involved to manufacture the wetsuit. An advantage of (GBS) sealed seam wetsuits is that the stitching needle does not go through both pieces of neoprene, it goes halfway through so it does not create holes that water can leak through. Sealed seamed suits are first glued along the seams then stitched so you get double the seal to prevent water leaks. Sealed suits typically cost more than flatlock seam wetsuits.

What makes some 5mm - 5/4mm full women's wetsuits more expensive?

The seam construction in 5mm & 5/4mm wetsuits can impact the cost of a wetsuit, some 5mm wetsuits have taped seams or welded seams. Welded seams are a liquid rubber that goes over the stitching of the seam that creates a more durable and water tight seam. It can also reduce the stretch of a suit so there are always pros and cons. These suits cost more due to the extra manufacturing time and materials. The rubber that makes up wetsuits are laminated on the exterior and interior of the wetsuit. The quality of the laminate can impact the strech of the suit and the price as well. If the suit you are looking at cost more, it likely has a higher stretch lament on the inside and outside of the wetsuit. Another factors in the cost is the quality of rubber used in making your wetsuit. Eco friendly wetsuits are made of neoprene free materials so they typically cost more because it a specialized material. Additionally, the amount of stretch in the rubber used in your suit also can impact the price. Stretchier wetsuits typically cost more than ones that have less stretch. You can find the amount of stretch on our website on the product pages.
