Polartec

830-226-5194

Terrapin Wetsuits offers a wide range of colors in Polartec material for your custom-made garments.  Please note, we do not sell the material separately. 

Polartec is the registered trade name of fabric made by Malden Mills.  They stopped making Polartec Aquashell material a few years ago, but I have stockpiled as much as I could gather.  The material is a layer of Lycra nylon on the outside, bonded with polyurethane to a layer of plush material on the inside.  Polartec Aquashell does not contain any sponge rubber, so is not available in thicknesses like neoprene.  It has the insulating property equivalent to 1.0-1.5 mm neoprene when worn alone, and 2.0-2.5 mm neoprene when layered under a neoprene suit.  Polartec wetsuits are neutrally buoyant.

Hover your mouse over any of the color swatches below, to see the color name for the Polartec material we have in stock.
