Setting a new benchmark for top performing wetsuits - The Dakine Mission Mens Summer Wetsuit has unreal stretch, fit and comfort, outstanding warmth and drying times, and unmatched durability.
GLOBAL WETSUIT LAUNCH - The Dakine brand, famous for its quality products and focus on durability, has finally entered the wetsuit arena with the global launch of their cleverly designed new wetsuit range. And we’re super proud to be one of the first stockists!
FLEXIBILITY, WARMTH & DURABILITY IN EQUAL MEASURES - The Mission series of this range is Dakines vision for rebalancing wetsuit design, building it from the ground up.The Mission sets a new benchmark for wetsuits; unreal stretch, fit and comfort, outstanding warmth and drying times and unmatched durability.
FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT - Featuring an all new wetsuit pattern; the Dakine Apex Fit – engineered for extreme freedom of movement, tailored fit and no stress points. The Mission also features in high stretch areas their FLX lining, stretch woven with reinforced elastane for next level strength in stretch fabrics.
THERMO WARMTH & SUPER QUICK DRYING - All Mission wetsuits are fully lined in the core with Hexo_Therm which was specially developed for Dakine by their fabric experts; a lightweight, stretch woven thermal base with an integrated high loft layer to create additional air trapping and quick drying properties. Used only in core areas for absolute warmth, for the non-core areas they use their Thermo lining - lightweight, stretch woven, high pile fabric for maximum warmth and stretch.
TRIPLE LOCKED SEAMS - Double glued with 3D stitching, sealed and reinforced with internal tape in critical areas. Ankle and cuff seals are reinforced from over stretch using RESIST lining over D foam high modulus limestone neoprene. Plus oversized knee panels, anti-fray compression cut cuffs, soft feel collar, YKK zips and more.
DURABILITY FOR LONG LIFE PERFORMANCE - Dakine believe that durability creates a longer product lifespan reducing the overall environmental impact (see ECO Details section for the full Eco lowdown). For each model the use of foam, lining and seam construction is adjusted to suit the performance, warmth or price - more DK_Lite neoprene for extreme stretch and lightest weight or more D foam for strength.
Regardless of price, all models use D foam high modulus neoprene and abrasion resistant linings in high wear areas. All seams are twice glued and at least twice reinforced with a combination of 3D stitch, liquid seal and tape, with the exception of the fused jacket and flatlocked spring suit.
Other features for durability include: 3D STITCH - A stitching system for zero water penetration and maximum strength. On 5mm wetsuits they use a double thread system inside and out. RESIST PANELS - Tactically placed abrasion resistant panels in areas of high wear or high material fatigue. ANTI-FRAY CUFF - The finished raw cuff is cut with clamp and black creating a super accurate low profile anti-flush, anti- fray finish. NEOPRENE TAPE - applied to the inside seams and seam junctions.

The Dakine Mission wetsuit range sits just below the Cyclone (top of the range) from this dependable brand and whilst lower priced than the Cyclone it has a price tag to justify the time and effort that has gone into the design. If you have the budget and want the performance then this is a very good investment long term. If you're budget is limited then the Dakine Quantum price points are worth considering
If you feel the cold more than others then the 4/3 is great step up from a 3/2 for Summer, or for others this is perfect for late Spring through to late Autumn
