Vissla is proud to collaborate with premium Japanese wetsuit maker BEWET on the “Chiba."

THIS IS THE STORY
For starters, The “Chiba” Chest Zip wetsuits are hand made in Japan. Polychloroprene (Neoprene) is normally made of petroleum through a chemical process. BEWET does not use petroleum. Our polychloroprene is made of limestone. The limestone is sourced in the Kurochime Mountains area in Niigata, Japan. They were originally plankton piled up over 300 million years ago in the Pacific Ocean, making it one of the highest degrees in purity. The limestone is heated with cokes (fuel with few impurities) to make a carbide bond. Then the carbide is processed with acetylene gas and hydrochloric acid to make polychloropene. To heat the materials, our factory uses only hydroelectric power that comes from 15 power stations located in the Hida Mountains. This makes it self-sustainable and more eco friendly.

The remnants from BEWET's factory as well as used wetsuits are collect from customers are carried to a thermal power station in Tomakomai City, Hokkaido to generate electricity. BEWET's Factory is also powered by a solar power system. More than 60% of the electricity is powered by solar panels on the rooftop of the factory (100% on a sunny day!).


STRETCH
• 100% Super Stretch S60 Supreme Japanese neoprene. Lighter, warmer, softer, stretchier, easier to put on and take off, and allows for more freedom of movement.

WARMTH
• Warmer and softer components filled with oxygen enable the use of less material and an overall warmer core temperature. This means you can wear a 3/2 instead of a typical 4/3.

TAILORED FIT
• Anatomically correct engineered body lines allow for unrestricted performance and warmth.

DURABLE & WATERTIGHT
• Chest zip entry - minimal bulk with contoured watertight design.
• Triple hand glued, double blind stitched seams. No need for all over interior taping as the glue used is so watertight.
• Knee Pad is anatomically correct, flexible, and strong.

CARE
• Treat with special care! You just bought a premium Japanese made wetsuit please treat it like one.
• Rinse wetsuit thoroughly inside and out with fresh water
• Hang dry in a cool shaded area and avoid hanging in direct sun light. While not using, store your suit in a cool area, preferably on a wetsuit hanger.
• When changing after surfing, avoid standing on the wetsuit. This will cause extra stress to the rubber & seams, which can result in a tear.

WARRANTY
• 1 year from original purchase date on all seams.
• 1 year from original purchase date on neoprene.
