ToasTees Wetsuits are designed to be almost as light as a Rash vest but keep you warm like a regular wetsuit.
In general, most wetsuits are made from one of 3 grades of Neoprene. They are categorised according to their cell density and are either 100% SBR, 50 %SBR / CR or 100% CR. With SBR being the highest quality.
All ToasTees Wetsuits are made from 0.5mm thick Neoskin TM ( 100 % SBR Neoprene).
There are 3 ranges.
Adult OCEAN series
Adult INSTRUCTOR series CHLORINE RESISTANT
The Children's and Adult Ocean series range are made from 0.5mm thick Neoskin TM ( 100 % SBR Neoprene). Titanium backed to increase warmth by up to 30% and help with removal. Thin, lightweight and coated with 4 way super stretch nylon to achieve the best combination of flexibility and durability. Flat locked stitched with nylon. UPF 50+ in compliance with A S / N Z Standard 4399.
The Skinny kids / special needs kids tops are for very skinny kids or may be suitable for kids with special needs. They are basically the same body and arm length as our regular kids tops but with reduced Neck, Arm, Chest and Waist circumferences.

The Adult INSTRUCTOR series CHLORINE RESISTANT range is made from 0.5mm thick Neoskin TM ( 100 % SBR Neoprene). The neoprene is coated on both sides with Chloroban ( PBT/Polyester ) and flat locked stiched with a Poly/Poly thread. It is best for instructors who spend time in heavily chlorinated pools.
How a wetsuit keeps you warm.
A wetsuit works by trapping a thin layer of water between the wetsuit and the skin. The body temperature quickly heats this trapped water, creating a warm buffer zone that is protected from the outside colder elements by the wetsuits neoprene rubber. The Nylon or PBT/Polyester outer layer provides greater strength and durability.
It is important that you select the correct size wetsuit. A wetsuit that is too big will allow a continual flush of cold water between your body and the wetsuit, removing the thin layer of warm water and negating the wetsuits warming ability. For a wetsuit to work properly they are designed to fit snugly.
