wetsuit interior creates suction against the skin, stopping water circulation inside the suit. Once the suit is properly fit with no loose areas, it creates a seal and no water can enter. This makes the open cell suit much warmer than suits with a lined interior. Generally speaking a 3mm open cell suit will be as warm or warmer than a 5mm double lined scuba suit. With the thinner open cell suit the diver will be just as warm but less buoyant. This means less weight to carry on the belt resulting in added comfort.
Open cell suits require lubrication to put on, a mixture of water with a small amount of hair conditioner in a spray bottle is normally used. The suit can also be put on in the water with no lubrication but we suggest. Once thoroughly wet inside, the suit slides on and off effortlessly, an open cell suit is much easier to don than a conventional double lined scuba suit. ** Care must be taken donning the suit as open cell is sensitive to cuts with fingernails **
In Europe all freedivers and spearfishermen use open cell suits.
