The Morea, which uses 3 mm neoprene top to bottom, has a rubberized chest panel that blocks wind and provides an abrasion-resistant, nonslip contact point for BC straps. The suit’s high-flex neoprene and its cut allowed very good range of motion, particularly in the hips, without the binding we noticed in some suits. The wrist and ankle seals are rolled and hemmed, without any smooth lining, but were rated good for limiting water entry. The entire interior of the neck seal is lined with smooth-skin, and the closure has a wide adjustment range, which helped to get a comfortable, leak-free seal. The printed knee/shin patches provide abrasion resistance and a bit of traction but not any padding. One of the more attractively styled suits in our test, the Morea has a very smooth feel to the exterior material, and still looked brand-new after multiple dives.
