ADELIO FORD ARCHBOLD MENS 3/2 BACK ZIP FULL SUIT
100% Limestone neoprene
100% Quad flex
Therma-loc Body lining

Adelio’s anatomical, performance-focused design helps maximise flexibility with ergonomically placed seams and structured panelling. Countless hours of meticulous design and sampling ensures we develop ever-evolving solutions to achieve ultimate comfort while minimising weight and drag in and out of the water.
Unique Therma-loc ‘quad-layered’ internal lining is flexible and soft against the skin. The light-weight, quick-drying grid allows the body to retain the heat it’s generated while wicking moisture away, keeping you drier and warmer for longer.
4-way flex limestone neoprene allows for ultimate strength and mobility serving as a much needed alternative to traditional petroleum based neoprene. This unique combination of lightweight limestone neoprene has less impact on our environment while also offering maximum warmth, flexibility and stretch in the water.

"Adelio wetsuits and surf accessories boast the latest in modern features and cutting edge technologies (minus the unnecessary marketing gimmicks). We use only the highest grade of 'limestone' neoprene available which greatly reduces our carbon footprint. The limestone is used in the manufacturing process and replaces the petrochemicals in some other forms of neoprene currently on the market. Carbon black, one of the key ingredients of neoprene, is now also pyrolysed from scrap rubber tyres which significantly reduces energy consumption and cuts c02 emissions by 299g per wetsuit.
The traditional solvent based laminating glue used in the production process has been switched out with new water based glue which eliminates harmful and volatile compounds. This uses 600g less of the solvent based glue per wetsuit. The colours that are on any of our suits have also been done using dope dyed yarn. Dope dying infuses dye pigments into molten plastic solution to produce coloured yarn without the dying process. This saves tremendous amounts of water while reducing energy consumption and water pollution. The polyester fabrics used to laminate to the neoprene also have recycled plastic bottles integrated. The result is a more environmentally advanced solution which uses around 45 plastic bottles per wetsuit."
