Posted by ecostinger on

Stinger Suits And Dive Skins (EcoStinger Products)
Both names refer to same full body swimsuit that is made from swimwear material similar to bikini and bathing suits swim fabric (and does not include neoprene or rubber material), they are commonly used for casual and lap swimming, surfing, sailing, snorkeling, jetskiing and other water sports in water temperatures from 20 °C (68 °F) and above. They are traditionally made from Lycra, Spandex and Polyester and provide little thermal function, but do protect the skin from the sun uv radiation, jellyfish stings, sea lice, abrasion and sunburn. New generation suits (EcoStinger products) are made from high quality fabrics that offer chlorine resistance and UPF50+ UV cover. Some divers wear a stinger suit or dive skin under a wetsuit or dive suit, cause it allows easier donning and provides additional comfort and skin relief for those who experience skin problems from neoprene or rubber material.

Wetsuits, Dive Suits and Drysuits
These type of suits are made from neoprene and, or rubber materials and can be used in colder water temperature between -2 and 25 °C (28 and 77 °F) depending on thickness of suit and insulation provided. These types of suits are not suitable for swimming or water sports activities where freedom of movement is needed. In general a wetsuit provide basic warm and seal protection and suitable for light diving, as for dive suits and drysuits they provide better waterproof and warm protection keeping skin dry and can be used for cold weather and deeper diving. Wearing and taking off one of these suits is not easy, that is why most experienced divers will wear a stinger suit or dive skin as first thin layer which makes it easier to put on a wetsuit or dive suit, and to take it off when wet which is the biggest challenge.
