A quality spearfishing wetsuit is the most important part of your spearfishing gear
Selecting your spearfishing wetsuit is more than picking a pretty camouflage and hitting the water. There are a variety of quality of neoprenes, cuts and builds on the market and they all matter for the type of diving you're doing and longevity of the wetsuit. For the sake of this article we will focus on Torelli wetsuits as they are one of the market leaders for freediving wetsuit quality.

Spearfishing Fins: Spear fishers spend a lot of time in the
