Different water temperatures require different wetsuits. Of course, most of us feel comfortable when diving in warm seas.
During my last trip to Egypt, it was very pleasant to use the Coral suit. The water temperature was around 28°C and I didn’t feel cold at all, despite all my dives as a professional underwater model being very long.
Although the Coral is only 0.5mm thick, the special Metalite fabric used on the inside helps prevent heat loss excellently. The Coral can also be worn in combination with other suits, as well as when diving in tropical waters.
It is very easy to don, does not require many weights, and dries very quickly, which is very important when doing 3 or 4 dives a day.
Other benefits of using the Coral include the possibility of zipping it up by yourself very easily and the ability to tuck it into a small space in your scuba bag, leaving room for extra fins or masks.
This is a slightly thicker wetsuit for warmer seas, made of stretchable, 3mm neoprene.
My personal impression is that, due to its modern design, the Reef combines the functionality and elegance that is always present in Mares’ diving suits.
Special attention has been paid to the seals on the wrists, legs and neck thanks to which there is no circulation of water through the suit.
Knee reinforcements fit the look of the suit perfectly and are very useful.
The high quality zipper on the back can be used easily and independently.
Like the Coral, it dries quickly, which is of great importance on liveaboard dives.
Overall, this is a great companion for diving in warmer seas.
