This innovative suit was designed using our most advanced technical materials and construction methods and purpose-built in partnership with a team of cave/technical divers to meet their demaning requirements and needs.
Exploring deeper than the recreational limits, further into that cave than anyone has been before or exploring ill-fated shipwrecks are things of which adventures are made. Technical diving is drawing more and more divers, and to bring them back home safely, they depend heavily on their equipment.
Exposure protection is high up on the list for technical divers. A technical diver whose temperature is comfortable and body protected is better equipped to think about the process of diving.
While BARE has a more than one drysuit model capable of the task, we asked ourselves “Can we do better? Do our drysuits meet all the needs of technical divers?” Those questions inspired us, and thus the X-Mission was born.
The X-Mission Drysuit, simply put, is purpose built to handle any mission. This innovative suit was designed using our most advanced technical materials and construction methods. Our engineers teamed up with the Cavebase Exploration team, who provided insights into the performance and precision needed for different types of technical diving. Cavebase put the X-Mission to the true tests and continues to do so today.
