Harvey introduces new line of Suits

Since 1957, Harvey’s Wetsuits has been producing unique and innovative wetsuits offering the best in thermal protection. The company’s latest line of wet and dry suits, Matrix, is designed to add an element to suit design not often seen — luxury.

Most divers don’t put the word "luxurious" and " exposure suits" together in the same sentence, but they might when they experience the Matrix’s four-way stretch neoprene that’s easily the most flexible and comfortable material ever produced. With an amazing 2.5 x stretch range, users will enjoy a "near custom" fit that will allow any diver the opportunity to move through the water with less effort and more dexterity than ever before. The Dri-Flex material will also expand to accommodate a diver’s change of size (from 30 to 50 pounds). This flexibility allows dive stores the ability to reduce the number of rental suits they need to stock.

"Our customers and the dive industry have asked us for suits that are comfortable, flexible and stylish. We’re pleased to offer the Matrix Dri-Flex line as the ultimate answer to these requests," says Michael O’Connell, National Sales and Marketing Manager for Harvey’s.

O’Connell adds that unlike wetsuits made by other manufacturers, the Matrix Dri-Flex suits are truly Velcro and BCD friendly. The material is designed to have greatly reduced vulnerability to potential Velcro or BCD wear and damage.

Using Harvey’s exclusive Kobalt Pro-Flex Seal System, each Matrix wetsuit is actually semi-dry by design. The adjustable Kobalt sealed neck design works in tandem with the Kobalt seals at the wrists and legs. This suit is not only the most flexible but likely to be one of the warmest wetsuits on the market today.

The Matrix line of wetsuits are available in men’s and ladies 3mm, 5mm and 7mm jumpsuits. Farmer John/jacket and shorty models also an option. The suits may be ordered as a complete system with matching layering shorty to provide additional torso warmth. Harvey’s also offers a Matrix Dri-Flex 5mm drysuit and accessories.

In addition to the Matrix wetsuits, two additional accessories, the Matrix Flex-Seal Boot and Matrix Dri-Flex Cold Water hood are also now available. The Matrix Flex-Seal Boot is a 5.0 mm boot constructed with the Matrix-Flex neoprene flex panel. This provides any amazing level of stretch capacity. The vulcanized rugged sole, heel, toecap and ease of use make this boot particularly popular with the US Navy SEALS.

The Matrix Dri-Flex Cold Water Hood is built with a 7.0 mm Matrix cold-water, semi-dry diving hood constructed with Matrix-Flex neoprene and Kobalt Pro-Flex face seal. This hood is built for comfort and warmth and is the perfect complement to other Harvey’s products.

Harvey’s has built a strong leadership position in the world of aquatic exposure protection. For more information about the company and its product line, go to
