IAnOVATED WETSUITS – The one with the breath powered hand heating system. This is not a partial relief to cold hands, it is a total solution, the only variable is how often you have to use the system
A 5/4mm smooth skin steamer with glued and blind stitched seams and a rear horizontal dry zip.
The breath heating tubes loop around the neck so you can grab the mouth piece with your mouth and you have free head movement when it is being used. The loop does not bounce around during stunts it stays where pictured.
The system only works because the tubes are fed along the inside of the suit, that not only insulates the breath but body heat actually boosts it. If you fall in the bit of water that goes in the tubes blows out warm as soon as you have water started!
No More Arm Cramps -By having a neoprene block running along the finger tips we have eliminated the layer of material between the fingers and the boom.
As the grip is no longer disturbed by any material between the hand and the boom you do not over grip which causes the tired aching arms you suffer with conventional palm-less mittens.
Control of the mitten is maintained by the tips of the fingers partially sinking into a neoprene block that runs along them. When the fingers are straightened the neoprene block is pulled under the fingers to ensure the mitten stays in place during a manoeuvre. When the fingers return to the grip position the neoprene block moves to the end of the finger tips out of the way of the grip but pushes against the boom forming a spray and wind proof seal.
