The Seabuck Vantage wetsuit is engineered for everyday spearfishers who want premium quality without the commercial-grade bells and whistles. It provides an optimal balance of warmth, flexibility, and comfort for spearfishing in all environments and conditions.
Our Vantage wetsuit range is made using the highest quality, Japanese-made Yamamoto 39 open-cell neoprene, widely regarded as the world’s best neoprene. The double-stitching and flexible face nylon allow for superior mobility in the water, and Smoothskin™ watertight seals around the wrists, ankles, and face minimise flushing in exposed areas.
Equipped with everything you want from a hardcore spearfishing wetsuit, the Vantage has a robust kevlar chest loading pad, highly durable Powertex™ bum, knee and elbow pads to protect those high-use areas, a built-in scupper for easily doing number ones in the water, and a knife pouch on the right leg for quickly dispatching your catch.
We’ve gone to great lengths to optimise the fit and cut of the Vantage wetsuit, seeking feedback from our customers and the spearfishing community to get it just right. The trimmable longjohn-style bottom also allows you to customise the wetsuit according to your preference.
High-tech PRYM1® camouflage keeps you extremely stealth in the water and helps you avoid detection by fish. Choose the PRYM1® Shoreline camouflage for open blue water spearfishing, or Blackout for hunting around kelp, seaweed and rocks.
The 3mm Vantage wetsuit is engineered for North Island summer conditions and warmer climates, while the 5mm is suitable for the North Island winter and the rest of New Zealand year-round.

Please note, we do not accept returns for wetsuits that are not in BRAND NEW, RESELLABLE condition.
Open-cell neoprene wetsuits don’t have an inner lining, which is great for keeping you warm and dry, but means they require special care. Follow these instructions for getting the most life out of your open-cell wetsuit.
Putting on your wetsuit
You’ll need to use some kind of lubricant to slide into your wetsuit. We recommend using a soapy mixture of 80% water/20% body wash, but you can also buy wetsuit lube.
Spray a generous amount of the soapy mixture or lubricant into the inside of your wetsuit. The suit should slide on easily. If not, apply more soapy water until it does.
A simple tip for putting on your jacket: Try rolling up the bottom a few times to make it easier to get on.
Take your time putting on the wetsuit. Don’t grab or pull sections of the wetsuit and be careful with your fingernails because open-cell neoprene can rip.
Taking off your wetsuit
For the jacket, put the hood on and then undo the tail clips. Pull the base directly up, tuck an elbow in and roll out of it. Make sure to pull the jacket from the nylon side (outside).
Don’t reach around and grab the inside as it may tear. For the bottom, carefully peel off the long johns.
