The Orca Equip is ideal for those transitioning from the pool to open water, or unfamiliar with swimming in a wetsuit. 2 5mm premium quality SCS coated Yamamoto 39 cell neoprene front panelsensure a range of motion normally associated with intermediate and top level wetsuits. 3 5mm Smooth Skin neoprene panels through the back add buoyancy, while Speed Transition panelsaid transition times. The Equips Hydrostroke forearm panel has a distinctive silicone print, which catches the water through the pull phase of the stroke. The 2014 Equips redesigned torso panel also provides better body positioning, plus increased buoyancy through the waist and the thighs. A multi stretch lining makes the suit incredibly flexible. Refinements to the waist panel include extending it over the chest, while retaining its 5mm thickness to boost buoyancy.
