Product Info

Not everyone lives on a tropical beach. For the folks who are out there bringing the island life to the mainland or elsewhere, there is the XCEL 4.5/3.5 Comp X TDC Hooded Wetsuit. Neck to ankle Thermo Dry Celliant insulates against cooler water temperatures and moves with you like a second skin thanks to an engineered fit system with one piece front and back panels and 100% high performance stretch. Built from a special nanoprene lite neoprene with Japanese limestone for reduced reliance on processed petrochemicals, the XCEL 4.5/3.5 Comp X TDC Hooded Wetsuit is made with a mind towards superior stretch and warmth while minimizing environmental impact.

Product Details


Nanoprene Lite Japanese Limestone NeopreneNanoprene Lite uses earth-minded limestone to replace processed petrochemicals in the neoprene for a reduced dependence on petroleum. It is soft, light, warm, and has unrivaled memory and rebound.

Thermo Dry Celliant (TDC) Neck to AnkleA mineral-based fiber woven into a smart textile increases blood flow to muscle tissue by transferring the body's naturally produced heat.

100% Performance Stretch NeopreneA multi-directional weave with Spandex blended for superior stretch and performance.

Dope-Dyed YarnDope-dying infuses dye pigments into a molten plastic solution to produce colored yarns without the dyeing process. This saves tremendous amounts of water while reducing energy consumption and water pollution.

Water-Based GlueXCEL turned solvent-based laminating glue into water-based glue, eliminating harmful, volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
