    Default MAKO Yamamoto Wetsuits are Here!

    Finally our new Yamamoto wetsuits have arrived!. We have 3, 5 and 7 mm suits and all are offered at introductory prices.

    Ask any world class spearo and he will tell you that YAMAMOTO NEOPRENE is the best neoprene material in the world. MAKO Spearguns has recently teamed up with Yamamoto to produce a world class 2 piece open cell wetsuit that is arguably the finest wetsuit available.
    The MAKO (Yamamoto) two piece open cell includes:

    Yamamoto Neoprene: The finest neoprene material in the world.
    Integrated knife pocket: Located on the thigh.
    Jacket: With integrated hood and adjustable Velcro beaver tail
    Farmer John Pants: For added warmth in torso
    Super stretch: Camouflage nylon outside for the ultimate custom like fit
    All seams: Glued and blind stitched for durability
    Chest loading pad: Real padded material sewn on
    Knee pads: Real padded material sewn on (not a glued on piece of rubber)
    Beaver tail: Adjustable for long and short torsos for a custom like fit
    Integrated ergonomic hood: To ensure a tight seal around the face

    NOTE: Open cell suits are 20% warmer than closed cell suits. For example, a 5 mm open cell suit will be as warm or warmer than a 7mm closed cell (nylon lined) suit. The benefits include greater warmth and comfort with less bulk and less lead required to control buoyancy. Serious freedivers prefer these suits because they spend much more time in the water than bottom-time restricted scuba divers.

    I think we normally refer to "open cell" to refer to non-lined interior suits versus "closed cell" to refer to nylon lined interior suits.

    The non-lined suits are slick and need lube to slide on, and seem much warmer for a given thickness. If they fit correctly, they are almost a semidry suit. I lube up with hair conditioner, dive all day; and when I take it off, i'm still covered in conditioner without any measurable salt water in the suit.

    Or did I get it backwards?

    What grade of Yamamoto rubber are the suits made of?

    would these suits be comparable to the Pinnacle? I want a new suit that doesnt force the air out of your lungs at depth.
