Wetsuit Introduces Red Cell Infrared Tech to Marketplace

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 18 July, 2014 - Redondo Beach - Since its inception over 60 years ago, Body Glove has maintained the philosophy that research & development is an integral part of their success. Therefore, after years of extensive development, Body Glove is excited to introduce the new Vapor X Red Cell wetsuit with revolutionary Red Cell Infrared Technology.

This new technology harnesses the suns rays to retain heat and for longer periods of time making the wetsuit warmer, drier and lighter than anything else on the market.

Body Glove’s Vapor X Red Cell maintains its progressive seam sealing system with Liquidweld on the inside of the wetsuit and Microbead on the outside. The ergonomically engineered “X” on the back of the suit increases mobility for any activity especially paddling. Continuing with the standard of “Warmer, Drier, Lighter” the Vapor X Red Cell adds infrared technology to keep in even more warmth.

“As chief of wetsuit design for Body Glove, I approached this technology with a specific goal in mind; to fundamentally change the way our suits respond to the water within certain environmental conditions,” states John Federof, Body Glove’s Wetsuit Designer. “Red Cell is just another example of Body Glove’s ongoing commitment in the pursuit of finding the highest quality wetsuits.”

“Anytime I’m surfing in a wetsuit, its all about warmth and flexibility;” states Jamie O’Brien, Body Glove Team Rider. “My new Vapor X Red Cell wetsuit does all of that and more.”

The Vapor X Red Cell comes in 3/2 and 4/3 in both chest and back zip.
