The Chiba Wetsuit
*Made for cool water: 53 - 61 F / 11 - 16 C*
Introducing the Vissla Chiba wetsuit by Bewet. A new model in our superior hand-made Japanese wetsuit line. Taking our original wetsuit design and constructing it out of a material called S60, allowing a softer and lighter suit with more stretch. This suit uses the same local materials as our previous suit but forgoes the use of corn oil for the softener and the recycled nylon threads. This allows us to offer a suit that meets the highest Japanese quality at an approachable price. This limestone material based wetsuit is manufactured in Bewets' highly sustainable factory in Japan. More than 60% of the electricity for the factory is powered by solar panels on the rooftop (100% on a sunny day!). The remnants from BEWET's factory as well as used wetsuits from customers are taken to a thermal power station in Tomakomai City, Hokkaido to eventually break down and generate electricity.
