Highest quality closed cell - Yamamoto 39 Neoprene
Pertex™ & Kevlar high use areas
Durable & abrasion resistant
Blackout & Shoreline
The Vanquish 2.0 is made using the highest quality, Japanese-made Yamamoto 39 open-cell neoprene, widely regarded as the world’s best neoprene. It provides the optimal balance of warmth, flexibility, comfort and toughness for spearfishing in all environments and conditions.
Double blind stitched and glued seams are reinforced with additional latex glue to enhance the suit’s longevity, durability, and watertightness, while Smoothskin™ seals around the wrists, ankles, and face minimise flushing in exposed areas.
The Vanquish 2.0 comes fully equipped with a new-and-improved kevlar chest loading pad. Highly durable Powertex™ bum padding, Powertex™ scale knee pads with extra abrasion resistant tape, and kevlar elbow pads provide the protection you need in demanding environments.
A built-in scupper for easily doing number ones in the water, and a knife pouch on both legs for quickly dispatching your catch contribute to the convenience of this feature-rich wetsuit.
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 and in darker waters.
The Vanquish 2.0 comes in 5mm, which is suitable for year-round use across most of New Zealand, or 7mm, which is engineered for winter conditions, deep south divers, and commercial divers who are spending long periods of time in the water.
Whether you’re a hardcore commercial diver or an everyday spearfisher who values quality, the Vanquish 2.0 will meet your needs and exceed your expectations.

Please note, we do not accept returns for wetsuits that are not in BRAND NEW, RESELLABLE condition.
Open-Cell Wetsuit Care
Open-Cell Wetsuit Care
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.
- After use, rinse thoroughly with freshwater, inside and out. Salt will destroy your suit faster than everything bar direct sunlight.
- Hang up your suit properly, definitely not in the sun, nor draped over your car’s side mirror or on the back door to the shed. Put a clothes hanger inside it and hang it in the shower or somewhere out of the sun.
- Turn the suit inside and out to ensure that it dries out properly. If you only leave it hanging with one side facing out, only that side will dry. The other side will remain wet and will begin to break down the suit.
- Use some wetsuit shampoo occasionally. This will ensure that you clean off any remaining salt that will certainly be missed when rinsing. Just add some to a bucket of water and give it a decent hand wash.
- Get rid of the smell. Thankfully, all Seabuck wetsuits come with a built-in scupper for easily doing number ones in the water. But if you’ve done a few too many pees in your suit (you’re not the only one!), over time it starts to stink. You can purchase Mirazyme which is designed to flatten odours from bacteria and mildew in wetsuits. Use this when you shampoo your suit if it’s starting to smell. Listerine mouth wash also works.
- Always take special care when putting on/taking off your suit. Don’t grab sections of the neoprene and avoid using your thumbs or anything pointy. Apply even pressure and don’t rush.
