I wanted to share my first impressions with you:
First of all, the flexibility of the neoprene allows an ease of putting on.
Once in the water, it feels like a “second skin”!
Therefore, it’s extremely pleasant to wear.
Thermal protection is very good (water between 19 and 22°C).
Sealed sleeves and the dorsal zip are effective: great water resistance!Sylvie M.R., Marseille, July 16,
As agreed, I am giving you a feedback regarding the wetsuit that I tested in real conditions:
- Exceptional comfort
- Flexibility and softness of the neoprene
- Freedom of movement
- No feeling of compression on the body
- Good resistance to abrasion (friction on the rocks)INPP Laboratoire d’essais, Marseille, June 16,
The seams are very soft – It feels great!
Putting on and taking off the wetsuit is very easy. In addition, it dries very quickly.

- 5mm wetsuit, one piece, separate hood.
- Condition : the Mediterranean, diving 37m deep, temperature of the water between 21°C and 17°C.
Using 7mm waterproof wetsuit, I was surprised by how soft the neoprene felt. Therefore, it was very easy to put on the wetsuit. Although I tested a standard size, the fit was perfect. Softness combined with the fit guarantees an ultimate diving experience. Technical moves are very easy to perform.
The downside of the soft neoprene is that it usually gets damaged by the pressure when diving at low levels, causing the heat loss. I tested the KALYPSE wetsuit during 37 minutes in a 17°C water and noticed a very slight damage. However, the wetsuit was keeping its shape. 7mm model was perfect for these conditions.Fréderic MAXANT, Carnon, September 2016,
