Unique wetsuits for our adventures

Our partner SubEvasion has prepared us unique wetsuits in white neoprene for diving and freediving. These combinations are the start of big projects for ProdAqua.

To learn more about SubEvasion: For over 35 years, the workshop has been making tailor-made suits for all aquatic practices, for the cinema, for high-fashion brands, for many freediving champions, for firefighters ... etc. For more than 20 years, the workshop created suits in subcontracting for big companies such as Beuchat / H.Dessault / Omer / Aqualung / SporaSub / etc ... They manufacture more than 15,000 combinations per year, then Janot the owner decides a radical change.Tired of being bothered by difficult clienteles who demand a huge production rate and less and less qualitative products, he ends this part of the market to focus only on the production of tailor-made for individuals and enthusiasts of the industry .The only pro orders he keeps are those for the French army, firefighters and gendarmerie and the cinema industry like for Brice de Nice 1 and 2 or even the movie on cousteau "L'odyssée"

Why using wetsuit under ice or in cold water: During the cold season of my diving activities in Canada, many people ask me why the ProdAqua team and I dive in wetsuit while almost everyone dives in a drysuit here in Quebec. The answer is rather simple, we dive in wetsuits with booties and 9mm mittens made to measure in split neoprene. As with the majority of suits of this type, to put them on you need soap and water. So we put them on with very hot water who stays inside and comes out only when we change at the end of the dive. These suits can be described as "semi-waterproof" since very little water comes in or out during the dive. In most cases, the suit keeps us warm longer than a dry and allows us to stay in water around 2 ° c for more than 2.5 hours, especially during successive dives where drysuits would have taken moisture during the first immersion and would have reduced efficiency during the second.
