Orca Openwater Smart Womens Wetsuit
This Orca Women's Wetsuit is not only engineered for performance, but it also has a number of features to improve safety when you're out in open water. It's constructed to provide thermal insulation exactly where required - in the core - and to optimise buoyancy for a good swim position and to improve confidence. Different thicknesses of neoprene are strategically placed, with a more stretchy material around the arms so there's no restriction to your swim stroke. An SCS coating improves hydrodynamics so you'll glide faster through the water for less effort.
Safety is taken care of by a number of details. The high-vis orange panels used in the lower leg and forearm areas ensure you're always visible and easy to locate, and there's a connector so you can attach the Restube buoy (bought separately), eliminating the need to wear a belt and preventing excess wear to the suit. Incorporating an innovative Smart Emerid device into the left sleeve, if you get into trouble anyone can scan the device through their smartphone and obtain emergency contact and health details. Additionally, a training timer means you can set your expected swim time; if the timer is not switched off your emergency contact will be notified. This device can give you, your family and friends some much appreciated extra reassurance of your whereabouts and safety when you're out swimming in a river or in the sea.
