Terrapin Wetsuits offers a wide range of colors and thicknesses of neoprene for your custom-made garments. Please note, we do not sell the neoprene material separately.
We stock Yamamoto Chloroprene Neoprene, made from limestone calcium carbonate, not petroleum-based synthetic rubber. There are 4 combinations of neoprene available:
- Nylon-2: Neoprene with nylon fabric laminated to both the outside and inside. See below for available colors.
- Nylon/Plush: Neoprene with nylon fabric on the outside and Zirconium plush on the inside. Yamamoto-conducted research confirms the Zirconium improves thermal retention. Available in black and royal blue nylon on the outside.
- Nylon/Skin: Neoprene with nylon fabric on the outside and skin-seal texture on the rubber surface inside. This is very sticky and best used for seals at the wrist and ankles. Available in black nylon on the outside.
- Nylon/SCS: Neoprene with nylon fabric on the outside and Yamamoto’s proprietary smooth coating on the rubber surface inside. This feels like baby powder when dry, and is slippery when wet, so easier to get on than nylon/skin, and doesn’t trap body oils like nylon fabric. Available in black nylon on the outside.
