HIGH PERFORMANCE, EFFICIENT DESIGN
The Heat features an efficient, clean design to deliver incredible performance and reliability now synonymous with Ocean Rodeo’s drysuits.
Built to offer you greater flexibility and customizable levels of warmth the Heat features our revolutionary Captive Zip design, giving you the ability to choose full dry mode or “standby mode.
When worn in dry mode the Heat is 100% dry and breathable. Between sessions, on your way to the beach or after your time on the water you can then open the dry zip and doff the neck seal. With the outer jacket then zipped up the Heat offers a well ventilated jacket and pants to protect you from the wind and rain. Converting from standby mode to full dry mode can be easily accomplished all while wearing your PFD.

CONSTRUCTION YOU CAN TRUST
Ocean Rodeo’s waterproof breathable three layer material “VENTOR” is designed specifically for drysuits, featuring a salt water resistant non-porous, hydrophilic polyurethane (PU) breathable membrane. These materials have enabled us to make suits that have lasted rugged adventurists for over 10 years.
(OUTSIDE *A) ABRASION LAYER:
200 Denier Nylon/Taslan with DWR finish. The tough outer fabric is coated with DWR to repel water while allowing sweat release from within your suit.
(MIDDLE *B) NON-POROUS, HYDROPHILIC
POLYURETHANE BREATHABLE MEMBRANE (PU):
VENTOR works well in both fresh and salt water environments and does not break down with extended salt water use. This is the part of the suit that keeps you dry. It allows sweat vapor out while not letting any water in.
(INSIDE *C) TRICOT: NYLON 18 DENIER TRICOT SCRIM:
The inside mesh layer helps protect the PU breathable film. This is what you are looking at inside the suit.
WATERPROOFNESS 10,000MM H2O OR HIGHER *1
MOISTURE PERMEABILITY 5,000-7,000 G/M2/24HRS. A1 *2
WATER REPELLENCY 80 POINTS OR HIGHER (AFTER 20 WASH CYCLES) *3
