What is Stitched & Glued?
Regular stitching punctures the neoprene as they are sewn together, causing a rough line along the seams where the parts are joined. This is a straightforward and durable production method for most wetsuits.
Stitched & glued wetsuits are produced differently, through a more complex method. The lycra on the insides is stitched together for durability, while the neoprene on the outside is glued together. This results in a smooth exterior all round for maximum streamlining.
Regular stitching punctures the neoprene on the outside, allowing water to leak in easily. By gluing the exterior neoprene, it forms a seal which makes it extremely difficult for water to seep in, thus keeping you warmer for longer. The stitched interior lycra supports the glued seams, making them as durable as regular stitching.
The stitched and glued option is strongly recommended for the 1.5 mm performance wetsuits.
