A wetsuit is made to keep the person in the water warm. To keep the user warm, the wetsuit is trapping water between the neoprene and the skin of the person who is wearing the suit. Therefore, it’s very important that the seams are sealed correctly. The thin layer of water is heated by the body temperature of the user of the wetsuit, and it will keep the person warm in cold waters. The wetsuit will also protect against jellyfish and a rocky seafloor. Divers will often wear a drysuit if they are diving in cold waters. The drysuit will keep the user warm by keeping them dry.
