Waterproof Drylock Entry System
The most advanced front entry system with a 100% waterproof Drylock zipper angled along the upper chest. The zipper flap is attached at the right shoulder to keep more water out. A Two-Part SmoothSkin Hem Seal on the left open shoulder forms a more complete, secure seal. The Magnetic Zip Closure allows for easier and quicker release than traditional snap locks. The inner Crosssover Neck Entry features overlapping panels that stretch to allow extra wide, step-in-through-the-neck entry.
Two-Part SmoothSkin Hem Seal
Wide SmoothSkin hem seal on the zipper flap's left open shoulder, plus tonal printed graphics on the left shoulder directly underneath the hem, forms a more complete and secure seal that keeps even more water out.
Magnetic Zip Closure
Say goodbye to buttons - Innovative, quick release zipper closure features double magnets on the zipper pull tab and attached zipper flap that securely lock the zipper in place, for easier and quicker release than traditional snap locks.
Crossover Neck Entry
Overlapping inner front and back neck panels (underneath the zipper flap) stretch to allow extra wide, step-in-through-the-neck entry.
100% Quick Dry Fibre Exterior
Ultra fast drying, hydrophobic exterior repels water, allowing less water absorption for maximum warmth and minimal weight; excellent stretch and durability.
The most lightweight, premium foam available; significantly lighter, stretchier, and softer than standard foams.
Comfortable, lightweight neoprene with softer foam and a tighter weave textile for less water absorption, better durability, and maximum stretch.
Texture embossed rubber that provides excellent wind resistance; ideal for outer chest panels hoods, and other areas that would otherwise lose warmth quickly.
Fusion Weld Stitch-Free Seams
The most durable, stitch-free, maximum all-way stretch seam construction; glued seams are heat fused together with a strong, lightweight outer composite and finished with inner taping for a fully leakproof seal that keeps in maximum warmth.
Thermo Dry Seam Tape
This all-way stretch, lightweight, durable interior seam tape creates an even better seal that keeps warmth in and water out. The tape is either infrared patterned (products with TDC) or yellow (non-TDC products).
Drylock Wrist Seals
An Xcel exclusive, this seamless, engineered "donut seal" construction keeps more water out, minimizes flushing, and forms a snug, comfortable seal.
Inner NexSkin Seals
A thin band of liquid neoprene ("NexSkin") in the inner wrists and/or ankles forms an excellent seal and helps minimize flushing.
Back Knee Flex Grooves
Behind-the-knee cutouts for maximum flexibility.
DuraFlex Knee Panels
Comfortable, durable knee panels that stretch with you.
Less Seam = More Stretch
Smarter product design means minimizing seams to maximize stretch. Any seams used are always pre-bent and contoured for a truly engineered fit.

Here at Yakwax we take the security and privacy of our customers very seriously. To help us achieve this we only use the highest standards of payment transaction methods available on the Internet. We have incorporated a couple of different methods for paying, This is to give our customers the highest level of convenience for you to choose the payment method that best suits you.
If you are paying for your purchase by Credit/Debit card you will be receiving the highest level of security for your card available on the Internet as well as ease of use and convenience. The reason you will be receiving this high level of service is because we process all our card transactions using the services of Paypal Payments Pro. We accept VISA, VISA ELECTRON, VISA DEBIT and MASTERCARD. We also offer the services of MASTERCARD SECURE CODE and VERIFIED BY VISA.
All transaction information passed between merchant sites and the payment gateway, it is encrypted using 128-bit SSL certificates. No cardholder information is ever passed unencrypted and any messages sent to your servers from the gateway are signed using MD5 hashing to prevent tampering. You can be completely secure in the knowledge that nothing you pass to the Paypal Payments Pro servers can be examined, used or modified by any third parties attempting to gain access to sensitive information.
Once on their systems, all sensitive data is secured using the same internationally recognised 256-bit encryption standards used by, among others, the US Government. The encryption keys are held on state-of-the-art, tamper proof systems in the same family as those used to secure VeriSign's Global Root certificate, making them all but impossible to extract. The data they hold is extremely secure and they are regularly audited by the banks and banking authorities to ensure it remains so.
Paypal Payments Pro has multiple private links into the banking network that are completely separate from the Internet and which do not cross any publicly accessible networks. Any cardholder information sent to the banks and any authorisation message coming back is secure and cannot be tampered with.
No individuals within Yakwax are able to decrypt transaction information or cardholder data. The Payment Gateway systems only allow access to their most senior staff and only in extenuating circumstances (such as investigations of Card Fraud by the Police). Your transaction information and customer card information is secure even from their own employees because their systems never display the full card numbers, even on administration screens.
If you have a PayPal account we offer the convenience of being able to use it when purchasing any goods from our site! This is an extra service we provide as we put ease of use and convenience to our customers right at the top of our importance list.
