TRILAMINATES

Trilaminates are three-layer fabrics with a waterproof butyl rubber membrane laminated between an outer layer and inner layer.  BARE's trilaminate fabrics are designed specifically for their intended use, and range from lightweight durability to extremely robust.

NYLON TRILAMINATE

Extremely flexible, durable, and lightweight trilaminate.

Found in: X-mISSION

NYLON RIPSTOP TRILAMINATE

A heavier ripstop trilaminate for more durability and placed in areas of the suit where abrasion is high. The ripstop fabric is woven with a special reinforcing technique that makes it resistant to tearing and ripping.

Found in: X-MISSION

NYLON 6.6 TRILAMINATE

A heavy-duty nylon trilaminate for exceptional durability.

Found in: EXPEDITION HD2 TECH DRY, HDC TECH DRY

CORDURA RIPSTOP TRILAMINATE

A heavy-duty ripstop Cordura nylon trilaminate for exceptional durability. The ripstop fabric is woven with a special reinforcing technique that makes it resistant to tearing and ripping.

Found in: EXPEDITION HD2 TECH DRY, HDC TECH DRY

KEPROTEC

Keprotec for extreme abrasion resistance. Extremely abrasion and tear resistant fabric with Kevlar® for top quality protection. This extreme protective fabric was originally developed for motorcycle racing.

Found in: HDC TECH DRY

POLYESTER TRILAMINATE

A polyester trilaminate is lighter weight and more flexible than traditional trilaminates.

Found in: TRILAM TECH DRY, TRILAM PRO DRY

 

CORDURA NYLON OXFORD 4-LAYER FABRIC

Extremely durable, breathable and designed to be light weight for travel-friendly drysuits. Also provides abrasion- and puncture-resistance.

Found in: AQUA-TREK 1 PRO DRY MEN'S, AQUA-TREK 1 PRO DRY WOMEN'S

BILAMINATES

Bilaminate materials are made of two layers. A waterproof polyurethane coating on the inside provides a waterproof barrier and the outer material is typically a nylon base fabric with a texture applied. These two layers laminated together, form the bilaminate material. BARE's bilaminates are extremely durable, and in some cases, offer excellent chemical protection. 

NEX-GEN FABRIC

Textured nylon base fabric, with a textured polyurethane outer coating for excellent chemical protection against toxins or pathogens.

Found in: NEX-GEN PRO DRY

ULTRA DRY FABRIC

4x4 nylon supplex base fabric, with a textured polyurethane coating to create a light and durable suit that packs small.

Found in: ULTRA DRY

NEOPRENE

Neoprene is made in 'buns'. They are cooked in an oven, then 'sliced' horizontally into the thickness required. i.e. 6.5mm, 5.0mm, 3.0mm.  The sliced surfaces are called 'open cell'. The neoprene slice is sometimes compressed to offer more stable thermal and buoyancy characteristics and laminated on one or both sides, depending on the purpose.

D-FOAM

Diving grade neoprene with better compression resistance than L-FOAM.

Found in: D6HD PRO DRY

HYPER COMPRESSED NEOPRENE

Diving grade (D-FOAM) neoprene mechanically compressed to minimize changes in buoyancy and thermal protection. 

Found in: XCS2 PRO DRY, XCS2 TECH DRY

NEOPRENE LAMINATES

DIAMOND-TUFF

Abrasion resistant knit fabric with heavier yarns improves the drysuits overall durability.

Found in: XCS2 PRO DRY, XCS2 TECH DRY, D6HD PRO DRY

PROTEKT

Abrasion resistant knit fabric with heavier yarns, and a coarser texture. Placed in high-wear areas of the suit for added durability.

Found in: XCS2 PRO DRY, XCS2 TECH DRY

M-FLEX

4-way stretch knit fabric on the interior of the suit for improved stretch and enhanced the freedom of movement.

Found in: XCS2 PRO DRY, XCS2 TECH DRY

KNEEPADS

The right amount of protection on the knees depends on type and style of diving do.  BARE offers a variety of fabrics, ranging from Kevlar® to a durable and flexible Melco to protect you and your drysuit.

K-PADZ

Kevlar® laminated over neoprene with Melco 75500 taped edges for durability with added padding.

Found in: XCS2 PRO DRY, XCS2 TECH DRY, D6HD PRO DRY

M-PADZ

Durable, flexible and abrasion resistant Melco T5500 material.
