This is the Gill Thermoskin Steamer Suit. It's our winter wet suit with a combination of five-millimeter panels more in the core, with three millimeters, a little bit thinner, and easier to stretch and move in in these critical areas. I'm gonna run through this. I'm going show you front and back. And it's a little bit of styling on the back here.

So starting at the top entry on this, this has a very, very aggressive Velcro that's built into the neoprene. So all of this is Velcro. All of this is a Velcro landing area. And as I open this up, I've got a zipper keeper tab here to keep the zipper up. And then I open it up and you will find this guy, which is unusual.

So what happens is, once you get into the suit, you'll take this, put it over your head, and that'll keep this resting along the back of your back there. Such that when you close this zipper up, there are two layers of neoprene, and that helps keep the water from seeping through the zipper and into the suit. So it's a nice feature.

On the inside of this, they have some fleece panels in the legs and in the core area, it adds a little extra warmth and comfort.

The neck is a short mock in terms of its height. And then it has this nice, soft piping that runs along the edge so it doesn't shape your neck.

Let's see, moving down the sleeves, just a tapered simple sleeve on the inside. If you can see this, this is a sticky material here, so that when you pull it down your wrist it really wants to kinda stick to your skin and not ride up as you're moving and stretching the suit.

Okay, working down the backside here, I have a reinforced seat area and slightly textured. And in the knees, I have this articulating reinforcement here. And then down at the wrists, or at the wrists, at the angle, tapered. And again on the inside, this sticky material, so that when you pull it down on your legs it wants to stay in place.

So this is the Gill Thermoskin Steamer Suit.
