Yes, there are people that actually spend winter in the water, whether they prefer to surf, fish, or race jetskis until their lips turn blue. Naturally, the ocean isn’t the place to wear your usual winter outfits. And the weather won’t allow you to dress in your usual swimwear, either. Instead, you’ll need something that’s create for the season’s icy temperatures. Something like the new Xcel Infiniti LTD Radiant Rebound.
Designed to let you enjoy watersports even in colder climates, the garment is fitted with a variety of technologies that allow it keep temperatures inside the garment in a constant state of warmth. That means, you can stay toasty when while spending a day in the middle of January chasing waves at the local surf spot, allowing you to partake in your favorite watersport even when it’s not in season.
The Xcel Infiniti LTD Radiant Rebound is a wetsuit that upgrades the outfit’s popular cold water line with a selection of new technologies. Chief among these innovations is Radiant Rebound, a metal lining on the upper body that blocks cold air from penetrating beyond the outer layer, all while converting body heat into refracting infrared, ensuring everything stays comfortably toasty under the garment. They liken to wrapping yourself in aluminum foil, with all the heat being gathered and reflected back to the body, with very little lost.
Piling on to the warmth is a Thermo-Lite lining in the lower body, a fast-drying, lightweight, and naturally hydrophobic material that’s exclusive to the outfit’s wetsuits. These advanced heat-trapping designs allow it to keep you comfortably warm in the ocean, all without the heavier and thicker build of traditional cold water recreational apparel. Further maintaining the heat are blind-stitched seams that are fully-glued three times over and a watertight zipper to keep all that cold air and water out, along with Fusion X tape to ensure the seals stay intact over heavy active use.
The Xcel Infiniti LTD Radiant Rebound also boasts the outfit’s Channel Flex Exterior, a new upper body material with a gridded pattern that breaks up tension by reducing fiber and water weight, enabling a weightless and unrestricted stretch to give you free range of motion. As with their other wetsuits, it uses Japanese limestone neoprene as an inner water barriers, Glideskin barriers on the collar, sealed wrists, and an engineered fit that’s designed to function like a second skin, allowing it to cling close to your body to keep you perfectly mobile throughout any activity.
A variety of models are available in the Infiniti LTD line, including ones with thicker materials, back zippers, and hoods, so you can choose the exact style that works best for your situation, along with separate suits for men and women. The most hardcore of the lot is a 4/3mm hooded fullsuit that, the outfit claims, can keep things toasty even at prevailing temperatures between nine and 13 degrees Celsius. Do note, this isn’t an easy-entry system, so you’ll probably want to put this one before going near the water, which, we’re guessing, is an extra precaution to ensure fewer pathways for air and water to get through.
The Xcel Infiniti LTD Radiant Rebound is available now.
