Women’s Wetsuits From DEMA 2016
There’s no better feeling than slipping into a brand new wetsuit and getting ready to dive. We had our eyes out for the latest and greatest women’s wetsuit at DEMA 2016.
Wetsuit manufacturers are paying closer attention to how their wetsuits look and feel to stand out from the crowd. We also noticed how wetsuit manufacturer are incorporating fabrics with heat retention properties for increased warmth during a dive.
Beuchat Focea Comfort 5
The Beuchat Focea Comfort 5 wetsuit was inspired by a starry night with delicate blue stars covering the diver. There are no details too small for the Focea and to form the wetsuit Beuchat cuts 48 anatomical panels using 18 different neoprenes which come together to create their most comfortable wetsuit to date.
The Focea 5 has zippers on the ankles and wrists and has a protective neck collar with a neck zippers. The Focea 5 also has pleated neoprene material in the elbow and back of the knees for extra stretch, and seamless stretch panels at articulations to reduce abrasion (armpits, inside elbows and behind knees).

The Scubapro White Everflex wetsuit was turning head at DEMA 2016. The bright white wetsuit is designed especially for women divers and is truly something special. Although we’re not convinced this would be a good everyday diving suit, that wouldn’t stop us from adding it to our collection.
