Openwater SQUAD Junior Wetsuit
The Openwater Core Swimskin is the ideal suit for safely swimming in warm waters without sacrificing the benefits of a wetsuit. This wetsuit features high visibility, flexibility in the shoulders and buoyancy in the torso.
HIGH VISIBILITYThe high-visibility orange sleeves will make it easy to see and locate the children in open water at all times, giving you and your children further reassurance of their safety.
The SQUAD OW, designed and made entirely of Yamamoto neoprene, is extraordinarily warm, thanks to its 2-2.5 mm thickness. Because it has been designed specifically for children and is available only in children's sizes, your little ones will be able to enjoy longer swimming sessions without you having to worry about the cold.
For greater flexibility, this wetsuit features high-elasticity materials, which allow children to enjoy the ocean with total freedom of movement.
Neoprene can be damaged by excess salt or other chemicals such as chlorine if used in swimming pools. We recommend washing your wetsuit with plenty of water after use. A small amount of neutral pH soap can be used and then rinsed out afterwards.
Once clean, be sure to prevent it from holding on to too much moisture. Air dry it outside or in a ventilated indoor space, somewhere without direct exposure to sunlight as this can damage its materials.
Storing your wetsuit properly keeps the materials and seams from creasing and being strained for long periods of time. It also prevents the material from wrinkling, which can affect both the wetsuit's durability and appearance.
The best way to store a wetsuit is to hang it draped from its waist, so that the most delicate areas such as the shoulders and arms do not have any tension on them.
For wetsuits with very flexible shoulders, (Apex Flex or Apex Flow) it is important not to place them on a hanger from the shoulder area, as this will degrade the elasticity over time. For the rest of the models, a wide hanger can be used, as long as the wetsuit is not strained in the shoulder or neck area.
