Beuchat Espadon Elite Smooth Skin Jacket – 8mm
Please note: Only size 3 (medium) and 4 (large) remaining
Beuchat Espadon Elite 8mm smooth skin spearfishing jacket with internal loading pad and Xray camouflage for underwater hunting. These suits dry in an instant and remove wind chill when out of the water on boat dives.
Beuchat's exclusive X-Ray camouflage is based on the Beuchat Trigocamo photographic camouflage, specially redesigned for an ultra-smooth spearfishing wetsuit.
Natural monochrome colours melt into the underwater background.
X-Ray camouflage is used on different parts of the Espadon Elite in order to break up the silhouette of the suit and make the diver even harder to detect. Camouflage is positioned primarily on forward-facing surfaces.
Smooth outer coating improves movement through the water for slicker, more efficient diving. The smooth skin also drys instantly out of the water and reduces windchill whilst on boat dives.
Reinforced stress pad on the top specifically designed not to cause turbulence.
Two-piece suit for intensive free diving and spearfishing
Top with hood (5, 7 or 8mm)
5 or 7mm waist-cut pants
Super-supple Elaskin X10 neoprene for improved comfort and greater freedom of movement
Open cell neoprene interior for outstanding thermal protection
High quality pre-formed anatomical cut for maximum comfort
Special anatomical cut at the back to prevent the formation of water pockets on the back or between the shoulders
Seamless stretch panels at articulations to reduce friction (shoulders, knees and elbows).
Pre-formed to follow the curvature of the lower back and crotch for a snugger fitting suit
Pre-formed, crotch-piece ergonomically designed to avoid discomfort between the legs, with double clip closure
Jersey crotch-panel on the top and between the legs of the pants designed to prevent wear resulting from friction between the thighs while swimming
Hood with Anti-Squeeze System
The Anti-Squeeze System mitigates the suction effect in the ears and simplifies pressure equalisation during dives.
Smooth outer coating improves movement through the water for slicker, more efficient diving
Reinforced stress pad on the top specifically designed not to cause turbulence
The Espadon Elite offers a high degree of thermal protection
Combines the qualities of an open cell interior with a smooth outer skin
Open cell interior procures maximum warmth
Smooth outer skin offers excellent protection from the wind and dries fast, especially useful on boats and at the end of the dive session

Due to the nature of the open cell interior and smooth skin outer, it is important to wet the inside of the suit with a soapy solution to ensure ease of entry to the wetsuit. Equally, it is important to lube the outside of the suit when taking it off. Trying to get into or out of any smooth skin spearfishing suit without the use of a soapy solution will likely damage the wetsuit. If you have any questions regarding this, please call us anytime.
