Orca Mens RS1 Long Sleeve Wetsuit Top Open Water Black

Code: ORW-220701-LN

  • +

The perfect choice for open water swimmers who need the semi-custom solution provided by a two-piece wetsuit: the Openwater RS1 Wetsuit offers unsurpassed flexibility in the upper body and good thermal insulation. In addition, the two-piece construction allows you to put on the suit without having to use a zipper, and there are more options when it comes to sizing as two different sizes can be combined for an optimal fit.



  • HIGH ELASTICITY.  You can take advantage of an unrestricted swim stroke thanks to the flexibility of this wetsuit, which features the most elastic materials available, a pattern optimized for flexibility, and no zipper.
  • TWO-PIECE CONSTRUCTION. Yo hold both pieces of the wetsuit together securely, a Velcro sealing system is used that keeps the two pieces from separating. This system prevents water from entering the suit through the separating hip area, for improved hydrodynamics and proper thermal insulation.
  • SPEED. Optimized for gliding through the water with each stroke, surface treatments such as the SCS coating are used, which minimize water resistance, improving the hydrodynamics of the wetsuit.


Care instructions for longer durability:

  • CLEANING. Neoprene can be damaged by excess salt or other chemicals such as chlorine if used in swimming pools. We recommend washing your wetsuit with plenty of water after use. A small amount of neutral pH soap can be used and then rinsed out afterwards.

  • Once clean, be sure to prevent it from holding on to too much moisture. Air dry it outside or in a ventilated indoor space, somewhere without direct exposure to sunlight as this can damage its materials.

  • STORAGE. Storing your wetsuit properly keeps the materials and seams from creasing and being strained for long periods of time. It also prevents the material from wrinkling, which can affect both the wetsuit's durability and appearance. The best way to store a wetsuit is to hang it draped from its waist, so that the most delicate areas such as the shoulders and arms do not have any tension on them.

  • It is important not to hang wetsuits on a hanger from the shoulder area, as this will degrade the elasticity over time.
