BARE unveils the world’s warmest dive wetsuit at DEMA

This year at DEMA, the BARE design team will showcase a major innovation in wetsuit comfort; Reactive, the first wetsuit in dive to use a responsive textile that continuously warms the diver using their own body heat.

The suit is made with scientifically proven Celliant® Infrared Technology – 13 thermo-reactive minerals woven into the fabric lining that convert body heat into infrared energy and reflect it back onto the diver. Since there’s no minimum heat requirement needed to activate the infrared process, the suit is warm from the moment it’s donned and stays warm through the entire dive. 

“This is quite a significant breakthrough in wetsuit comfort,” says Tyler Dickman, Brand Manager for BARE. “Reactive is the first suit of its kind to utilize Celliant® Infrared  technology and NST. Because we’ve also incorporated our No-Stitch Technology (NST), there are no seam stitches anywhere – it’s all heat taped and sealed – the diver stays drier. Usually, we use that system for drysuits – this is the first wetsuit we’ve used it on. We’ve also incorporated a proprietary neoprene offering our highest degree of stretch, so it’s unbelievably comfortable and responsive to dive in.”

Can a suit make you a better diver? Medical studies have shown that infrared energy improves the body’s circulation. Increased circulation improves oxygen levels in the body, enabling you to use less energy, improving overall warmth and increasing your dive time.

“We are pumped to be able to launch this suit at DEMA,” says Dickman. “Without question it’s the finest suit we’ve ever made. The one where all our design, comfort and manufacturing innovations come together in the ultimate recreational suit. This is the one we’ve been working towards.”

Reactive will be on view at the Huish Outdoors booth (659) during DEMA along with a demonstration on how Celliant® Infrared Technology works.

Just passing it along in case anyone is interested.

The future of personal dive computers powered by OLED color display and Bluetooth technology has arrived. Oceanic is proud to introduce the VTX.

With an easy-to-use interface, amazing readability, powerful features, and simplicity at its core, VTX is the new benchmark for modern dive computer design. Cutting edge technology coupled with powerful features could not be any easier to experience. A hoseless, air-integrated computer with patented air time remaining algorithm. High contrast OLED color screen, tilt compensated 3-axis digital compass, Bluetooth ready, up to 4 nitrox mixes, user replaceable battery and an intuitive push button menu system.

 

Bluetooth 4.0

The VTX is the first dive computer engineered to take full advantage of Bluetooth. The means interacting with your dive computer immediately before and after the dive couldn’t be any easier. There’s no longer any need to connect your dive computer to a computer. The DiverLog for iOS App takes care of everything wirelessly. Full remote control of all your dive dive computer settings – anywhere. View Log and Profile data, add location, notes and other details. Wirelessly update VTX firmware on the go for the latest features and best performance.

 

 User-interface 

The VTX has a completely new menu structure, applied across the whole system that brings clarity to the entire experience. The displays and interface are purposely unobtrusive and the clutter has been stripped away. Unnecessary data and icons have been removed to allow a greater focus on what matters most… the dive. It’s about showing you what you need to see when you want to see it. That’s it.

OLED screen

Our ultra-bright high contrast full color OLED Display means your dive data is always clearly displayed – no matter what kind of conditions you’re diving in. Adjust the intensity on-the-fly for perfect clarity and battery savings when a super bright screen is not needed.
