The RG8 is made with eco-friendly limestone neoprene and recycled bottles on the inner and outer liners.
There are 100 plastic bottles that get recycled into this suit. They put it all together with fluid welded seams that are durable and keep you dry and warm.
RG8 Tech Specs:
• FUSE Chest Zip System
• Single Fluid Seam Weld
• Eco Friendly UltraFlex RG8 Neoprene
• Air infused firewall in the chest and lower back
What we like:
The FUSE chest zip system takes the DNA of the ZEN back zip floating zipper and makes it available in a chest zip system. There is no leakage through the chest zip on the RG8.
What we don’t like:
The FUSE uses a huge zipper that is stiffer across the chest than some of the suits with smaller zips.
Why you want the RG8:
You should feel good knowing you are making an environmental impact and getting a top of the line wetsuit.
Making the green room "greener". The Psycho RG8 Series takes the best aspects of the incredible Zen-Zip closure found in the O'Neill Psycho wetsuits and uses this same technology in a front-zip entry. The new 2011 F.U.Z.E. closure system is an easier entry and exit, along with added warmth using RG8 Air Firewall. Tested by O'neill's most intense team riders in the most frigid water across the globe.
