Product description
The Openwater RS1 Thermal Wetsuit is the wetsuit that provides the most thermal protection of the Orca range. It features a specially developed inner lining to maximize heat retention for open water swimming. It also has a second layer of “batwing" neoprene that provides more insulation down the zipper and neck areas, minimizing the inflow of cold water.
In the torso, Yamamoto 39 technology which is up to 5mm thick provides maximum thermal insulation where it is needed most, without affecting the positioning of the swimmer or restricting movement. This material provides 85% more insulation compared to not wearing a wetsuit. The Thermal X high-performance inner lining retains heat more efficiently than our standard linings. It is also comfortable and soft to the touch.

Yamamoto 40 is used in the shoulders and back together with the Infinityskin lining. This material can stretch by up to 130%, more than double its original size, providing maximum performance in your swim stroke. For the wide range of movements that occur in the shoulders, it offers 72% less resistance than a conventional wetsuit.

To avoid heat loss in the back through the zipper, this model features a "Batwing" construction consisting of a second layer of neoprene. This layer prevents water from seeping through the zipper and coming into direct contact with the body, keeping a layer of warm water inside. It also guarantees a comfortable snug fit in the neck, reducing friction and water entry from the neck area into the suit.

The approximated size of the packed product or the sales package is 100 x 300 x 400 mm.

So far so good! have only worn the RS1 a couple of times. Have worn an Orca Sonar for the last 10+ years and it has been great. Decided on the Orca RS1 Thermal due to swimming in open water over winter. Bought the same size as my previous Orca but found the RS1 to be a little larger which is disappointing, also found the lower neckline to allow more water in. the thermal lining on the suit seems to be doing the job in 12 degree water temp. Hopefully in 6/12 months i will give the suit the same review.
