This 1 piece, back zip design suit has concealment technology built in with the addition of Chillproof ‘hollow fibre’ fleece for extra warmth and enhanced wicking capabilities. Designed to provide full body protection from the cold, sun and marine stingers with concealment technology to allow you to get closer to marine life. It can be used under an existing wetsuit for extra warmth or can completely replace your wetsuit in warmer waters. It is less buoyant than neoprene so you need less weight, making you more comfortable when snorkelling or diving.
Get closer to wildlife than ever imagined with Sharkskin Covert.
Designed to improve your dive experience, Sharkskin Covert HECS StealthScreen allows you to explore like never before. HECS revolutionary concealment technology reduces the human body’s electric signal, making you less detectable to underwater marine life.
Covert works by combining three scientific principles:
As our bodies emit natural electromagnetic signals, many marine species detect these signals underwater through a sense known as electro-reception. The ingenuity behind HECS technology is derived from the Faraday Cage principle, whereby interlocking carbon fibers channel and redistribute electricity throughout a conductive mesh.
When this Faraday Cage is woven into a garment, such as Sharkskin Covert, the HECS Stealthscreen grid keeps your electrical energy field from escaping. Despite the other available senses of sight, sound and smell, the absence of an electromagnetic signal seem to slow the flight reaction of underwater species, allowing for a more casual approach. This is a huge advantage for underwater fishermen as well as underwater filmmakers and photographers wanting to document marine species without disrupting their natural environment. Ultimately, Sharkskin Covert HECS Stealthscreen technology offers you the benefit of exploring marine life more closely.
Authentic Sharkskin garments come with a 12 month guarantee on workmanship. Excludes fading and degeneration as a result of excessive exposure to chlorine or sunlight. We guarantee Sharkskin will perform as advertised.
CAUTION: HECS products are designed to reduce the electromagnetic output of the wearer so less is emitted and detectable from the outside. Some species of sharks and other marine life are attuned to very minor electromagnetic signals. Typically such aquatic species are also sensitive to visual and olfactory (i.e. smell) stimulation, which a HECS product does not effect at all. HECS products DO NOT in effect make the wearer invisible. The user assumes all responsibility and risk involved when in the habitat of sharks, rays and other marine life. Many aquatic species are dangerous and unpredictable. It is impossible to guarantee that marine life will not detect any electromagnetic signal while a person is wearing a HECS product and also may locate a wearer using its other senses. With or without a HECS product all aquatic species should be treated with respect and caution. Any water-based activity in the presence of marine life is inherently dangerous, involves a considerable degree of risk and is not recommended. Do not participate in any activity involving risk of harm from marine life which you would not voluntarily engage in without a HECS product.
