The latest Junior Gul Response FX 5/4mm Chest Zip wetsuit is long lasting, durable and flexible. The perfect combination of value for money and performance. Constructed with blindstitched seams and all over X-Flex super stretch, giving you over 150% stretch.
The key element of this Response 5/4mm wetsuit is the front, chest zip entry system. Gul's Quadrate horizontal PK zipped bib entry with glideskin seal and bungee cord / barrel lock keeps more water out. By incorporating a Chest Zip the finished wetsuit provides enhanced flexibility and less water ingress around the neck. Removing the usual rear zip entry means there's less panelling, less stitching, less opportunity for water ingress and above all greater freedom of movement.
Youngsters tend to feel the cold more so the combination of 5mm and 4mm thicknesses of neoprene potentially for year round protection. Combined with Gul's X-Flex thermal lining helps ensure your core body temperature locks in the heat as the lightweight thermal insulation traps warm air all around you helping maintain core warmth.
A key construction feature of thicker neoprene wetsuits is the Glued and blindstitched seams which help to minimise water ingress and improve thermal properties of the wetsuit. During production the wetsuit panels are double glued and then butted together followed by stitching that does not penetrate all the way through the neoprene. Inside the wetsuit, heat welded waterproof taping fuses seams together in high stress areas adding further reinforcement.
