ECO-FRIENDLY

Neopren Cyril Moussilmani

ECO-FRIENDLY NEOPRENE

With 35 years of experience in water sports, we have realized one thing: only longlasting products are truly sustainable products. They contribute to using less energy, conserving resources and generating less waste. And last but not least, they contribute to gaining satisfied customers. That’s why we put the highest priority on quality in manufacturing and materials. The technologies driving the new GUNSAILS neoprene collection are all in the interest of sustainable and eco-friendly thinking, as they save large amounts of raw materials, energy and water.

Limestone Neoprene

LIMESTONE NEOPRENE

Instead of petroleum-based ingredients as used in the past, a calcium carbonate made from limestone is now being used which is much less harmful to the environment and also, due to the air bubbles it contains, has better flex and insulation values.

Aqua Alpha Technology

AQUA-ALPHA TECHNOLOGY

Water-based adhesives are used in the lamination process. These are solvent-free, more eco-friendly and, of course, less harmful in production. The bonding strength is not affected by this.

Recycled Polyester

RECYCLED POLYESTER

Whenever lining fabric is applied to neoprene, it is made from polyester yarn, which is made from recycled plastic bottles. Another contribution to waste reduction and conservation of resources.

Eco Carbon Black

ECO CARBON BLACK

A main component of the neoprene is Carbon Black, which is later mixed with Limestone Neoprene pieces. This carbon black is now obtained in a chemical process from shredded scrap tires, which also helps to conserve resources.

TEST REPORTS

Testbericht Neoprenanzug Frontzip Semidry Hood

SURF / NOV-DEC 2023 // FORCE FZ SEMIDRY HOOD 6/5

Putting on the Force is easy, the collar area is neither particularly tight nor extremely wide. However, you immediately notice that the Force Semidry Hood has thicker than average neoprene on the arms and legs. However, because the cut is a little wider than in the middle, it still slips in well. The information on the direct supplier's website that "the Force models tend to run small and should be ordered one size larger" is something we can't quite understand based on our test model. Overall, the interior of the Winterneo appears somewhat reduced. The soft, additional warming material called Thermo Plush is limited to the torso and front thighs. Despite the thick material thickness, the Gunsails Force Semidry Hood is by no means bulky, but hugs the contours of the body well and offers good stretch. The overlap between the neck ruff and hood is large enough, and a drawstring can be used to minimize the ingress of water. The hood closes softly and comfortably around the face. However, the small ear holes make for annoying constant noise. On top of that, the cold wind draws directly into the inner ear. We recommend covering the ear holes on the inside of the hood with a thin layer of neoprene to solve the problem.

CONCLUSION: Gunsails offers a winter neo at a fair price. Comfort, freedom of movement and thermal insulation are good, although not at the top level. Nevertheless, sessions in icy water and at temperatures between four and twelve degrees Celsius are absolutely no problem.
