If you’re looking for a lycra dive skin to protect you from the sun, look no further. Aeroskin makes great quality dive skins, swim suits, and swim jackets right here in California. The price might be higher than other manufacturers, but the quality is well worth it.
Lots of people come in to pick up these lycra dive skins for their whole family before they head out on warm-water diving adventures. Why? Because they provide excellent sun and abrasion protection. Covering your body from neck to ankle with lycra definitely cuts back on the amount of sunscreen you have to use, and is a great way to avoid coming back from your vacation looking like a lobster.
Why use a Lycra Dive Skin?
These dive skins are for warm water diving, and other watersports that aren’t too cold. They have no thermal properties on their own, but there is nothing wrong with wearing them under a wetsuit. If you’re looking for something to give you a little extra warmth, you’re going to want to get something made of neoprene.
***PLEASE NOTE: The Aeroskin patch on the chest no longer has the big Fish logo. It is now a smaller and subtler “Aeroskin California” patch. The rest of the dive skin looks the same as the picture. We doubt this is a big issue for you, but we wanted to let you know anyway!***
