TPM Thermal Protection Material is a high density neoprene that protects the upper torso against the cooling effects of the wind and water. The denser face of the fabric is solid and will reflect wind and water. There are two different types of TPM on the suits. One is the C-mesh which is on the front raised loop back *for comfort and warmth. This is strategically placed on the chest for maximum warmth and reduced wind-chill. On the shoulder areas we have added gravel skin TPM. This is a slighter thinner neoprene than the C-mesh and stretchier for the required movement. Gravel skin is also more durable than conventional Neoprene and so will withstand harness abrasion.
FLATLOCK STITCHED Flatlock stitching lies flat against the skin and prevents chafing. This method of construction results in a very durable finish.
GLIDESKIN Low-friction glideskin seals offer warmth and comfort against the skin & protection from chaffing.
