GLOBAL WETSUIT LAUNCH - The Dakine brand, famous for its quality products and focus on durability, has finally entered the wetsuit arena with the global launch of their cleverly designed new wetsuit range. And we’re super proud to be one of the first stockists!
FLEXIBILITY, WARMTH & DURABILITY IN EQUAL MEASURES - The Mission series of this range is Dakines vision for rebalancing wetsuit design, building it from the ground up.The Mission sets a new benchmark for wetsuits; unreal stretch, fit and comfort, outstanding warmth and drying times and unmatched durability.
FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT - Featuring an all new wetsuit pattern; the Dakine Apex Fit – engineered for extreme freedom of movement, tailored fit and no stress points. The Mission also features in high stretch areas their FLX lining, stretch woven with reinforced elastane for next level strength in stretch fabrics.
THERMO WARMTH WITH FLEXIBILITY - This Mission wetsuit is fully lined with FLX_Thermo lining - lightweight, stretch woven, high pile fabric for maximum warmth and stretch.
SOLID SEAMS & CUFFS - Flatlocked and reinforced with internal tape in critical areas. Cuff seals are reinforced from over stretch using RESIST lining over D foam high modulus limestone neoprene. Plus anti-fray compression cut cuffs, soft feel collar, YKK zips and more.
DURABILITY FOR LONG LIFE PERFORMANCE - Dakine believe that durability creates a longer product lifespan reducing the overall environmental impact (see ECO Details section for the full Eco lowdown). For each model the use of foam, lining and seam construction is adjusted to suit the performance, warmth or price - more DK_Lite neoprene for extreme stretch and lightest weight or more D foam for strength.
Regardless of price, all models use D foam high modulus neoprene and abrasion resistant linings in high wear areas. All seams are twice glued and at least twice reinforced with a combination of 3D stitch, liquid seal and tape, with the exception of the fused jacket and flatlocked spring suit.
Other features for durability include: RESIST PANELS - Tactically placed abrasion resistant panels in areas of high wear or high material fatigue. ANTI-FRAY CUFF - The finished raw cuff is cut with clamp and black creating a super accurate low profile anti-flush, anti- fray finish. NEOPRENE TAPE - applied to the inside seams and seam junctions.
A Spring Suit is better suited to the warmest days in Summer or for watersports where you have less time in the water like Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Wakeboarding, Windsurfing, Kayaking, etc
-Atlantic and English Channel coastline: Summer / Early Autumn
-North Sea coastline: N/A
-Water Temp: 15-22 degrees
|Spend Level||The Dakine Mission wetsuit range sits just below the Cyclone (top of the range) from this dependable brand and whilst lower priced than the Cyclone it has a price tag to justify the time and effort that has gone into the design. If you have the budget and want the performance then this is a very good investment long term. If you’re budget is limited then the Dakine Quantum price points are worth considering|
|Personal Preference||If you feel the cold more than others then the 3/2mm full suits or even a 4/3mm is a better option for Summer, or for others this is perfect for Summer through to late Autumn giving more flexibility and a freer feel with less neoprene.|
Alongside better value and product experience for the customer, Durability creates a long product lifespan, reducing the overall environmental impact. The Dakine suits are pretty much up there when it comes to how eco-friendly you can be with a suit without losing performance. And with so many Eco considerations they should be a 5 out 5, but Dakine have rightly considered performance too and so hence the 4.
