WEST

Gen4 Lotus Airo by WEST style #1MCA10

West Air-O

“The suit that is getting the most love is our Gen4 Lotus’ Airo. We meshed two styles to come up with this ‘super suit’ and the overall feedback has been insane. Double sided taped, interior has the nice glide skin taping and the exterior is done with our lava seam, a pin line fluid seam weld, making it water-tight. We also added our Airo technology in the chest and back panel protecting the vitals and making this suit the warmest around.” -West

“The key feature of the suit is the limestone, and what often gets over looked is our faith in our wetsuits. Every suit comes with a lifetime warranty, we started that in ’82 when the brand was launched and still offer that today.” -West

Features:

  • Chest Zip L/S Fullsuit
  • 100% West Gen-4 ultraspan neoprene
  • Fluid seams
