The Ultimate Chest-Zip Suit


The New Generation Viper features less panels and more stretch that ever before!


The Viper uses our Quadrate horizontal chest zip entry system keeping the zip off your back, leaving your shoulders and back free to move.


X-flex super stretch neoprene on the main body panels gives an incredible 100% plus stretch, making the Viper the perfect high performance suit.


Blindstitch and liquid external seams provide 100% water seal keeping the winter chill out. Ideal for Dinghy Sailors,


Windsurfers, Kitesurfers, Kayakers and SUP.

Introducing BOLT DRY Gul's new and exclusive fastest drying neoprene yet.  The ultra quick dry core wicks water away from the skin creating a cushion of air between the body and suit, giving ultimate insulation and warmth.

 X-FLEX 100% stretch neoprene is used in our high performance wetsuits. It gives you maximum freedom of movement, allowing your wetsuit to work with your body without impeding stamina. The latest X-Flex neoprene is 10% lighter, absorbs less water and has a softer, more comfortable feel. The improved X-Flex neoprene also has a lower modus, which means they stretch more without losing their shape and spring.


100% neoprene giving unrestricted range of movement and warmth.


New 4 way stretch high specification knee panels designed to resist the most harsh elements while providing maximum flexion and extension of the knee.



Your wetsuit has been made from carefully selected materials to give the best combination of durability and performance. With the correct care you will gain the maximum life from your suit. Always rinse your suit after use in clean water using a mild detergent if necessary. Pay particular attention to remove any sand or foreign matter from the zips. Please don’t use any solvents or other chemicals to remove stains or marks from your wetsuit as this can cause damage. Do not force zips and if possible get someone to pull up the zips for you, pulling zips up not across. Protect your wetsuit from sharp or abrasive objects. Ensure the suit is the correct size and do not pull the ends of sleeves or legs to remove.
