There may be a few super-stretch neoprene panels in the scuba diving wetsuits, which individually makes it possible to use glide-skin materials. Also, getting into and out of the scuba diving wetsuits is extremely easy because of their design pattern and the materials that are used in constructing it.

The scuba diving wetsuits should be extremely durable and thus may need to use tough exterior materials with scuff-resistant knee and shoulder protection. They should be comfortable in different climatic conditions, especially in tropical environments.

The scuba diving wetsuits should also be able to stretch and protect the wearer from scrapes, cuts, stinging jelly fish as well as sunburns and make the dive an exciting experience. As well, the scuba diving wetsuits will usually be constructed using 5mm thickness with 5mm steamers and double lined 5mm neoprene throughout having plush lining to make the wearer feel comfortable and luxurious and there should also be enough protection for the knees and shoulders.

The rubber material that is used to make such scuba diving wetsuits are known as polychloroprene or just neoprene, for short. This is an intercellular material that implies that each bubble or cell is an entity complete in itself, which is able to hold a tiny bubble of gas that makes it very difficult for cold to get in or heat of the body to escape.

The exterior is made from a nylon-based material that is conducive for stretching and has hard wearing properties and the nylon itself is heat bonded to the neoprene to enable it to have more color as well as for strengthening it. The benefit of Titanium lining lies in the fact that it is an impregnated weighty layer that is enclosed between the neoprene and the inside lining of the scuba diving wetsuit which results in heat being reflected from the inside, back into the body.
