Vissla is beyond excited to announce our all new Eco Seas Wetsuit — an environmentally conscious wetsuit that is made from natural rubber and recycled bottles, as opposed to petroleum based fabrics.
The Vissla Eco-Seas wetsuit is developed in conjunction with Sheico to utilize some of the most earth conscious materials and production techniques, including natural rubber instead of neoprene, water based glues rather than solvent based materials for laminating & recycled plastic bottles used for the interior & exterior jerseys.
All blending together to make a suit that is undoubtedly one of the most flexible and environmentally friendly wetsuits on the market. With anatomically correct, tailored fit body lines and minimal seams, the suit allows for unrestricted warmth and performance.
The suit goes even further with subtle embossed branding, eliminating the need for any unnecessary solvent based printing.
The initial product release available online at vissla.com starting November 16, 2016 features a 3/2.5mm for cool water ranging
from 55 – 64° F / 10 – 16° C.
After years of development Sheico finalized NaturalPrene™. This cutting edge material is a Natural Rubber Foam harvested from renewable rubber trees that replaces traditional neoprene.
Aqua-A™ lamination glue is water based and completely solvent free with no harmful chemicals. Aqua-A™ replaces traditional solvent based glues in the lamination process.
Upcycled Ultraspan™ water repellent jersey made from recycled bottles replaces traditional petroleum based fabrics. Each wetsuit uses approx. 45 Recycled bottles to make up the material used in the jersey lining.
Upcycled Thermal full body lining insulates heat and dries fast. Together these Eco friendly materials make the Eco Seas wetsuit warm, soft, and stretchy. This allows for more freedom of movement while surfing and more ease to put on and take off.
