Subgear’s new Apnea 1 five-mil is a unique wetsuit designed specifically for free diving. It comes with a nylon-lined interior so it’s comfortable against the skin plus easy to climb in and out of. However, its exterior surface is slick to repel water. The suit features a 360-degree O-ring-style neck seal and stretch panels under the arms and in the lower-back area to enhance range of motion. Even better, the back zipper runs diagonally rather than straight up and down the spine, which makes self-donning easy—those days of needing zip-up help from your dive buddy are gone forever. To complete this distinctive thermal ensemble, the Apnea 1 includes a hood that also has a lined interior and slick exterior. The Bottom Line: For free divers, this suit works to keep you streamlined and to lock your body heat inside the suit where it belongs.

In ScubaLab’s 2010 testing, the Cayman was the only reg in the under $500 category to reach all depth levels with a score of “above and beyond” in work-of-breathing evaluation.
