Thanks to O'Neill's double-sided Fluid Seam Weld (FSW) and stitchless seam construction, the suit is 100 percent sealed. O'Neill welds the neoprene layers of the suit together without stitching so that water cannot leak through tiny holes left in the fabric. Additionally, the suit has strong wrist and leg seals and a virtually water tight Super Seal Neck making this wetsuit a top performer in frigid waters.
Comfortable to wear, the 7mm J-Type FSW wetsuit has a TFX lumbar flex panel providing ease of movement in a critical area while maintaining the core insulation. The wetsuit also has Strategic Ultraflex DS flex zones for optimum range of motion and strong but flexible Plasma Padz in the knees. The 7mm J-Type FSW Wetsuit is a great choice for serious divers who are looking for an alternative to drysuits and would like to avoid the bulk and potential for leaking of traditional two-piece suits.

Sometime around 1952, Jack O'Neill opened the first surf shop in a garage across the Great Highway. He shaped a few balsa surfboards and sold accessories like paraffin wax and few vests (glued together from neoprene). When the vests started selling, Jack decided to go into the wetsuit business. His friends laughed. They asked him what he planned to do for business after the handful of surfers in the area had bought one. Jack said he'd cross that bridge when he got to it.
