BARE's most durable suit ever, the HDC TECH DRY with front-zip is for the serious recreational diver who needs an exceptionally tough technical suit.

The full CORDURA® body, KEPROTEC® kneepads made with Kevlar™, and RipStop reinforced lower sleeves, shoulders, crotch, and seat are extremely tough and abrasion resistant, for the highest degree of protection from punctures and tears.

With anatomically articulated arms, legs and torso, we've cut down on excess bulk, minimizing weight, improving fit, and allowing for more natural aqua dynamics. The suit features the patented ATR system (Automatic Torso Recoil) providing amazing flexibility when you’re bending, kneeling and reaching upward. It works by maintaining a tucked fold in the center of the suit allowing the top and bottom to move independently of each other. This great feature eliminates the need for a cumbersome crotch strap. adapting the torso length of the suit to your movements. Internal suspenders are included.

A redesigned SMART collar improves the seal between collar and dry hood all but eliminating water entry and incorporates a new drain valve improving the flow of water away from the neck area. The plastic main entry zipper is more flexible and less bulky than traditional brass zippers.

The HDC TECH features a 360 degree swivel inflator valve and adjustable low-profile exhaust valve. A removable inflator valve backer pad is made from non-compressible 3D spacer material, which ensures unrestricted airflow and prevents discomfort when diving depths start to create squeeze.

The suit comes with a 3mm neoprene comfort-fit neck seal, latex wrist seals and your choice of HD vulcanized 4mm compressed density neoprene BARE boot, or compression-resistant Soft Boot (socks). A pee-valve and/or pockets can be installed if you wish.

The 2 needle "felled seam" construction increases seam integrity, is low profile so less prone to abrasion and finishes for a clean look. Flexible double taped reinforcements at "critical wear" seam points add to durability.
