What is Open Cell Neoprene?
Neoprene itself consists of millions of tiny air bubbles and when cut these air bubbles are exposed (open) creating tiny suction cups within the material. When worn against the skin the open cell neoprene sticks creating a watertight seal to keep a diver much warmer.
Water sucks the heat from your body 12X faster than air. PADI suggests reheating your body after every session until sweating occurs bringing your body back to its' normal temperature. This will fend off hypothermia and keep you warm and happy all day.
You lose up to 40 percent of your body heat from your hands, feet and head and yet, it's one of the last things divers think about replacing.
Please use the detailed chart above. We do not pay for size exchanges so measure carefully if it is worth it to you. Also, because of the suction-like properties on the inside of open cell is much harder to put on compared to a closed cell which just slides on. Open cell items require a lubricant to be put on before you slide it on your body. Without lube, you will not be able to put it on without tearing it. However, socks (and gloves/mitts), you only need a small amount as you have the risk of falling.
