MATUSE WETSUITS Scipio Front Zip 3mm Fullsuit
As far as Roman Generals go, Scipio is in the Hall of Fame and is one of the most ichiban battlefield tacticians ever. Like Scipio's generalship, the Scipio fullsuit is unquestionably on another level. Due to the suit's ergonomic fit and Matuse's blackZERO technology, the all 3mm Scipio fullsuit is pound for pound the warmest suit in the water.
Average Water Temperature Range
52°-60° Fahrenheit. 11°-16° Celcius. (This is an average. Adding a hood and booties will increase the range of water temps you can be comfortable in. Some people may find they can go colder or need thicker rubber for the same water temps depending on personal preferences.)
This unique material is Geoprene with an other-worldly coating. The coating ensures that blackZERO Geoprene absorbs no water and - better yet - none, nada, zilch, ZERO of your body heat. For this reason, blackZERO reflects your heat back inward - meaning that none of the precious warmth you work so hard for escapes the comfy confines of your ichiban.
The Scipio has black channels in the arms that lessen the locomotive process of water and/or air inside the suit. Essentially it prevents water and air from moving around and helps the body save energy by NOT having to warm water over and over again. The channels are strategically placed in the arms and shoulders to maximize flexibility and maintain positive circulation to the finger tips.
Hidden Chamber Technology
Geoprene with built-in air chambers. Warmer, lighter & more buoyant than average mouse-pad neoprene.
Human engineered seams enable paddling harmony yet provide a static neck to minimize torque that causes chaffing and flushing.
Inspired by jet-ski suits, this panel is designed to withstand many-a-swell spent straddling. Better yet, the Saddle Seat's form-active design keeps your undercarriage happy because it won't ride up.
Provides lateral movement and lowers resistance (as well as time spent getting in & out of your ichiban game).
External Key Pocket
Located just above the outer left knee. Includes elastic loop cord, mini-pocket and zipper closure. This allows you to access your key without having to remove the top half of your suit.
