The Mission Chest-Zip wetsuit sets a new benchmark in wetsuits iwth unreal stretch, fit, warmth and drying time combined with unmatched durability!
Built from the ground up, Dakine's Apex Fit pattern allows extreme freedom of movement and perfect fit without stress points. For high-stretch areas they developed FLX lining, stretch woven with reinforced elastane for next-level strength, matched with internal thermo lining with high loop insulation.
Specially designed Hexo_Therm high loft is combined with quick-dry lining placed in core areas to ensure absolute warmth and comfort. Seams are triple locked and twice glued, 3D stitched, and critically taped to seal and reinforce seam junctions. Ankle and cuff seals are reinforced using Resist lining.
Oversized knee panels, anti-fray compression cut cuffs, soft feel collar, YKK zips round out this rugged hooded wetsuit.
