Blue Wild Expo Oceaner Scores With Springs Wetsuit

Oceaner Scores With Springs Wetsuit


For competitive freedivers, a small Canadian company has been quietly producing some of the best wetsuits on the planet. Oceaner Sporting Goods Canada makes hand-crafted wetsuits to cover Recreational and Competitive freedivers and spearos.

Famous for their Custom Yamamoto Neoprene suits, founder and owner Gary Mallender and his son Mitch shared their newest addition to their product line with at this year’s Blue Wild Ocean Adventure Expo.

The Oceaner Freediving “Springs” suit is designed for women freedivers and is the result of a collaborative effort between Oceaner and USA Freediving member and competitive freediver Ashleigh Baird.

Ashleigh explains:

“Gary and I had been in talks about creating what he called a ‘cute suit’ for us girls to wear in warmer water for a few years. What we came up with was a performance suit that wore more like modern swimwear. For warm days I loved the option of wearing their pool top on it’s own, but the beaver tail was uncomfortable and didn’t provide adequate coverage. This design solved that problem. I wasn’t entirely sure how much thermal protection this piece would provide, but after testing it in both my home springs and in the cenotes in Mexico, I realized it definitely has an advantage over my other standard swimwear pieces. It’s really perfect for warmer water diving and can be paired easily with their bottoms if any extra coverage or thermal protection is needed.”

The Springs suit is a 1.5mm, women’s sleeved, open-back top, with the same high quality Yamamoto corporation neoprene, craftsmanship, fit, quality, and performance you will find in the rest of the Oceaner lineup. The Springs suit features flat-lock stitching, a Lycra lining and smoothskin neoprene. All Oceaner wetsuits can be custom fit and are offered in a variety of color options. The new Springs suit is currently available in Graphite (pictured) and an eye-popping metallic Blue.
