Fall 2013 Xcel Drylock 4/3mm Hooded
The best just just got better, the Drylock series has competed with all of the top of the line wetsuits for years. Now the Fall 2013 edition brings you all the features that Xcel has been packing in to the Drylock line for years with the added bonus of Fusionweld technology. The most durable,stitch-free seam on the market allows for all-way stretch. The Fusion seam uses a glued seam that has a durable composite on the exterior that is then heat fuzed to seam taping on the inside. The result is a fully leak proof seam that does not compromise flexibility and stretch the way wider seam-weld seams of other suits do.
The new suit also features an all new Quikdry liner on the interior of the suit as well as Quickdry fiber on the exterior that combines to keep you toasty in the water and will minimize the number of times you have to crawl in to a cold, wet, suit.
The 4/3 Hooded Drylock from Xcel has long been a shop favorite of ours up here on the chilly Central Oregon Coast. It allows flexibility while still keeping us warm even in the middle of winter. And with the new features added, we are sure it will stay at the top of our favorites play list.
