seam construction

double super seam stitchless technology double super seam stitchless It is a stitchless seam construction that utilizes a non-chafing grade, silicone-based urethane applied to both sides blocking out water without restricting flexibility. It is stronger, faster and 60% lighter.
Single fluid seam weld Single fluid seam weld It is a seam construction that utilizes a non-chafing high-grade, silicone-based urethane applied to outside of a glued and blindstitched seam blocking out water without restricting flexibility.
glued and blindstitched critically taped glued and blindstitched O’Neill’s blindstitch is the Flexloc Stitch which is stronger and more flexible than the traditional blindstitch and eliminates unraveling of the seam. If the thread breaks, the seam will not leak.
Flatloc stitched Flatloc stitched The stitch uses 4 needles and 6 threads, and works by overlapping the panels and sewing them together. It is a strong stitch and is comfortable, but not sealed so it is not intended for extremely cold conditions.
