What makes the Velocity Series uniquely special is the combination of three different full-stretch material types, which we call PROGRESSIVE FULL-STRETCH (PFS) construction. We start with BARE-FIT, the foundation of every BARE suit, which uses ergonomic design and intricate shaping patterns with articulated arms and legs. Then we highlight areas of the suit where flexibility is essential, and incorporate full-stretch fabrics to maximize performance in these key areas. PFS gives the Velocity Series a fit, feel and performance unlike any other.


As with every suit we design, the Velocity began with BARE-FIT. Using ergonomic design and intricate shaping, our design team developed anatomically correct patterning with articulated arms and legs, for a 3D shape that gives you the best possible fit.

Bare wetsuits have the best fit

I own a 3 mil, a 5 mil, and a semi dry suit all made by Bare. They fit better than any suit I have ever tried on. They are durable and comfortable. My first one was purchased in 2005 and it is still a great suit! A suit for most every water temperature, I recommend Bare!
