Product Description


The Mares Illusion 50 Wetsuit is a spearfishing suit that is ideal for all year round diving due to it being 5mm in thickness. This will keep you warm enough through winter and in summer if you get too hot you can simple open up your neck seal to flood the suit which will cool you down instantly. The Illusion is a brown camouflage colour that is ideal for weedy and grass beds as well as rocks bottoms. It is made up of a hooded jacket that has an anti-slip loading pad for protection and high waisted long pants with reinforced knees.


The suit is pre-formed in the way it is cut to give maximum comfort and the neoprene is a high stretch to prevent any restriction. The Mares Illusion is called an open cell suit which means that the inner of the suit is raw material and needs a lubricant to be put on.  If you do not use a lubricant, it will tear the inner suit, a great lubricant is hair conditioner. An open cell is basically millions of little suction cups that suction on to your body that keep you extremely warm. Without a lubricant, open cell suits are almost impossible to put on.


After every use, you will need to clean your wetsuit to get rid of the sea salt and sand. If it is not cleaned correctly, it will deteriorate and the zipper could seize up due to the sand. You can purchase wetsuit wash from us at Dive Warehouse which you mix with water and clean your wetsuit in. The sooner after your dive, then better. Try not leave it a few days before you get around to doing it. A great way is to fill the bath tub up when you get home from your dive, add the wetsuit wash and your wetsuit and give it a through clean. Hang on a wetsuit hanger to drip dry ready for your next dive.
