Design details


Extreme Protection in all conditions

Premium Japanese limestone based neoprene that is 95% water impermeable compared to 70% for standard neoprene which allows it to absorb less water, dry faster and provides more wind chill protection. It’s unique cell structure has a 23% higher close cell ratio for added bouyancy and flexibility. The cells are also evenly spaced to fill up with more nitrogen gas that makes the neoprene warmer. Limestone is extracted in a much cleaner, environmentally friendly process than petroleum makes NP believe that it should be featured in all their new wetsuits.

Bioceramic is a material composed of a mixture of non-toxic mineral oxides such as platinum, titanium, and aluminium, added to the fibre in liquid form to produce fabrics able to exploit all its properties. Additional benefits of bioceramics are the antibacterial and permanent anti-odor characteristics.

NP's advanced Dri Flex knitted outer jersey is 25% lighter with 30% added flex and dries in a faction of the time compared to our Apex Plus material. This dynamic waffle jersey is fused with a polyester and spandex blend and combined with Yamamoto Neoprene which means that the neoprene is over 95% water impermeable. Dry Flex Material is truly Lighter, Warmer and Stretchier than any neoprene NP have produced.

Armor-Skin is made from Apex-Lite core, laminated with an elastic jersey and sealed with a waterproof, Super Durable Skin (SDS) layer that cuts down on wind-chill and protects the suit from wear and tear.
