8/7MM Velocity Ultra Hooded Semi-Dry

colour: {{selectedColorTitle}}
Available sizes



Our proprietary combination of three different full-stretch material types, which we call PROGRESSIVE FULL-STRETCH construction (PFS), makes this one of the highest performing mid-priced suits available. 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 and abrasion resistance are essential, and incorporate special full-stretch fabrics to maximize performance in these key areas. PFS gives the Velocity Ultra Series a fit and feel unlike any other.


What makes the Velocity Ultra Series truly special, is that it’s the only mid-priced dive suit to feature the thermal-activated performance of Omnired™ Infrared Technology. Using minerals woven into the fabric of the suit, Omnired™ turns wasted body heat into infrared energy, reflecting it back to your body. This results in increased warmth, faster recovery times, and greater stamina for longer, more comfortable dives.

Bare the bear


Good suit for the Pacific Northwest

Just did 8 dives over the last three weeks (June 2018).
The water temperature was at the bottom 48-50F (9-10C), outside temperature was around 60F (16C) surface time was around 60 minutes. Deepest dive was 100 feet with 8 minutes at that depth (total time 34 minutes). Did a 3 dives/day with night dive (70 feet). Well the experience was significant.
Now the review. After the first day (2 dives) I added a 3mm vest because at the zipper there is just a thinner single layer of neoprene (2mm). You can feel the cold immediately (30 feet). By adding the 3mm vest that suit start to shine. At no point above 80 feet was the cold a problem. Below 80 feet you can feel it, but that was tolerable (8 minutes at 100 feet). After completed 5 dives in two days the torso was completely dry, the legs (up to the knees) and the arms (to the elbows) were wet. The integrated hood is fantastic. You will need more weight then a wetsuit but less then a drysuit since some air is trap (torso) unless you let the water getting in. I never unsuited between dives. I will recommended this suit in late spring to early fall here in Vancouver BC. Longevity unknown.
