What are divers costumes called?
Wetsuits are designed to provide an insulating layer between you and the water. They keep you warm even when there’s a thin layer of water trapped between your skin and the suit. The thickness of the suit provides an insulating layer, and the fit of the suit reduces the circulation of water.
US Navy SEALs use 3 main types of underwater breathing gear : open circuit compressed air , closed circuit (100% oxygen) (LAR V Draeger) and closed circuit (mixed gas) (MK 15, MK 16). Other US Special Operations Forces that have an amphibious capability also use these systems.
