Dual skin design, uniquely SL:01
Our inspiring adventurers from XDEEP’s Exploration Support Program set us a challenge. To solve the seemingly impossible balance of light and flexible v tough and durable. A ground-breaking double shell design and advanced materials technology gave us the win. Proven in the harshest environments.
Material with embedded technology
Reinforcing and protecting key areas on the SL:01 is Superfabric. Utilising hard resin dots, applied to a flexible base fabric, Superfabric technology gives the protection of Kevlar without the stiffness. Cut-proof and resistant to abrasion, crawl through the most inhospitable spaces with near impunity.
Combat Inspired Design
The most demanding test of any equipment is found in the military. The stresses that combat equipment must survive, compared to recreational or technical diving are in a different world.
By meeting and exceeding the specific needs of combat divers for over 20 years, we had the knowledge and skills needed to design the SL:01. Comfort, flexibility and toughness combined.
Cut for performance
Designed for performance, without any compromises. Reach and movement is enhanced through a sophisticated cut pattern in the chest and arm area. The result, incredible freedom to move without extra material causing air traps.
A drysuit zip where it should be
Pressure points can be created where the harness passes over the zip. Only one intersection now exists due to smarter thinking on the zip position, and even this is pressure free.
This innovation delivers significantly less zip stress and eases load carrying, in or out of the water. A second Japanese YKK Vision #8 over the dry-zip offers yet more protection.
The unique zip position gives unparalleled ease of access into the suit. Whether on a small boat or in the back of a car, we just made kitting up much easier.
Smarter arm mounting for the essentials
On each forearm is a military-inspired molle type carrier, a flexible accessory mounting rail. The options you can create are virtually unlimited, from anything that fits on a molle clip, to innovative flexible threading options.
Thread bungee or cord for cave markers, mount computers and secure CCR handset cables with ease.
Ergonomic Pocket Design
Ideally located and designed to remain streamlined, the SL:01 high-capacity pockets give easy access when required, otherwise they stay flat. Made of tough German Cordura and approved by tough cave divers!
