All ION semidry wetsuits with long arms / long legs are equipped with a Water_Gate_Plus batwing panel on the inside of the back behind the zipper. It works like a water barrier to keep out the water which soaks through the back zipper. To improve the waterproofness even more, all ION batwings (except Capture) have an additional cuff extension like a collar worn over the head. On top of that the glued blind-stitched seam is covered with an extra Neoprene tape sealing to keep you dry and warm on the inside.

For years all ION Neoprene products like wetsuits, Neoprene tops and other Neoprene accessories where made of highly elastic certified Limestone_Neoprene from Japan. That means the raw materials (polychloroprene chips) are made of calcium carbite which is converted from limestone (calcium carbonate) instead of using Neoprene derived from petrolium oil like in the past.
Although this production method uses a lot of energy in the electric arc furnaces where the limestone is processed, this energy derives from hydropower. Hydropower produces essentially no carbon dioxide or other harmful emissions, in contrast to burning fossil fuels, which significantly contributes to global warming through CO2.
Seal_Tite (Wrist)
New S_Seal rubber stripe print around the inside wrist makes a tighter sealed fit, which avoids water rushing into the wetsuit arms. This specific S_Seal is very UV resistant and durable for a long lasting product life.
