If you attended this past weekend’s Blue Wild Ocean Adventure Expo in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and were able to tear your eyes away from freediving superstar Umberto Pelizzari sitting in the Omersub booth, you’d notice that the company was also featuring a wetsuit with a neat fiber technology.
Until now, that technology, called HECS Stealthscreen, had only been used for camouflaged, dry-land hunting jackets and pants.
Omersub is now offering HECS Stealthscreen in its spearfishing wetsuits.
The way HECS works is that the conductive carbon fiber is woven into a mesh as part of the wetsuit that forms what’s called a “Faraday Cage” that blocks the diver’s electrical energy field, reducing the signal the human body naturally emits to allow the spearfisher or underwater photographer to get much closer to his/her target.
