3MM Reactive Wetsuit

Available sizes


reacting to the human element

The suit is made with scientifically proven Celliant® Infrared Technology - 13 thermo-reactive minerals woven into the fabric lining that convert body heat into infrared energy and reflect it back onto the diver. Medical studies have shown that infrared energy improves the body’s circulation. Increased circulation improves oxygen levels in the body, enabling you to use less energy, improving overall warmth and increasing your dive time.


Medical trials show that infrared energy improves circulation and increases tissue oxygen. The result? Celliant Infrared Technology helps conserve lost body heat and accelerate thermal recovery. Keeping you diving longer and recovering faster.

Seamingly perfect

The first dive wetsuit made without a single seam stitch, Reactive uses our patented No Stitch Technology (NST). NST isolates the body from the water eliminating seam leakage using taped seams inside and out. Using the power of Celliant ® Infrared Technology to insulate the body, combined with NST, this creates the world’s warmest dive wetsuit.

Technical Specifications

  • ELASTEK FULL-STRETCH neoprene combined with CELLIANT® fabric for our highest degree of warmth, stretch and comfort
  • Reactive uses Celliant® Infrared technology to turn wasted body heat into usable infrared energy. The lining is enhanced with 13 thermoreactive minerals woven into the fabric of the wetsuit that react to your body heat converting it to infrared energy and reflecting it back to the body increasing circulation and body warmth.
  • Using our patented No Stitch Technology (NST) process, until now only found in our drysuits, Reactive is made without a single seam stitch keeping you drier, warmer and diving longer



Wow, Celliant is fantastic (sorry, review is in Dutch)


After I saw the REACTIVE in the water sports fair BOOT last year, I wanted this wetsuit. The fit, and the appearance, gave me a lot of attention. The info about the technology with CELLIANT, was very interesting. After being forced to go "wet" early in the season, it became clear to me that CELLIANT works. The water was 10 degrees Celsius but I was quite hot. Where I poured hot water through my neck with other wetsuits for diving, I did not need it now. So, fan and very happy with my BARE Reactive wetsuit. But it's summer, the water gets hotter so I wondered if I would have the same feeling in a thinner Reactive wet suit. My first dive was with TODI, and yes I was very hot. But now the temperature here with 23 degrees Celsius is not really fresh. So last Friday to the Nionplas, surface temperature 20 degrees Celsius and at 5m depth 14 degrees Celsius and again pleasantly warm. In my opinion, the BARE Reactive wetsuit line is the best what is currently on the market. But judge that especially myself, I did that too. I can not wait for a shorty version. Not to use that in the outdoors but just fine for on holiday to far away destinations. Mvg. Frank


Nadat ik vorig jaar op de watersportbeurs BOOT de BARE Reactive zag, wilde ik dit wetsuit. De pasvorm, en het uiterlijk sprak mij erg aan (let wel: de versie 7mm met rode streepjes). De info over de tech met CELLIANT, ach ik zou het wel zien. Nadat ik gedwongen werd vroeg in het seizoen "nat" te gaan, werd mij duidelijk dat CELLIANT werkt. Het water was 10^c maar ik had het behoorlijk warm. Daar waar ik met andere wetsuits warm water via mijn nek naar binnen giet voor een duik, had ik dat nu niet nodig. Dus, fan en erg blij met mijn Bare Reactive wetsuit. Maar het is zomer, het water word warmer dus vroeg ik mij af of ik het zelfde gevoel in een dunner Reactive wetsuit zou hebben. Mijn eerste duik ermee was bij TODI, en ja ik had het erg warm. Maar nou is de temperatuur daar met 23^c niet echt fris te noemen (voor mij dan iig) Dus afgelopen vrijdag naar de Nionplas, oppervlakte temperatuur 20^c en op 5m diepte 14^c en wederom aangenaam warm. In mijn opinie is de BARE Reactive wetsuit lijn het beste wat er momenteel op de markt is. Maar beoordeel dat vooral zelf, dat heb ik ook gedaan👌🏻 Ik kan niet wachten op een shorty versie iig. Niet om dat te gaan gebruiken in het buitenwater maar gewoon fijn voor op vakantie naar verre bestemmingen😁 Mvg. Frank

Warmest 3mm Wetsuit I've Ever Owned!

I've been diving for almost 15 years now, and this Reactive 3mm is by far the warmest 3mm wetsuit that I've ever owned. It's super comfortable, flexible, and best of all warm!

Simply Amazing Wet-Suit

When I first purchased my reactive wet-suit I was still skeptical, as I had my eyes on the Henderson Thermax suit as well. So I bought both and tested them both . For fit and comfort they both get 5 stars. For warmth my Reactive suit far exceeds any other suit I have tried and tested. The reactive can be too hot for me at times and thus I will switch to my Thermax. Being a Scuba Instructor who trains in cold water, with over 100 + dives per year, warmth is a priority. I have dove in low 3-5 C* temps and have had no issues @ all with warmth. I find it difficult to keep up with run away students when wearing a Dry-suit, wearing my reactive keeps me warm, streamlined and in control of my group with ease. Now waiting on the Reactive boots, hood and gloves to arrive. Really Happy with my Reactive
