Highline

Ultimate stretch zipless suits

quiksilver highline neoprene
Zipperless Entry & Air-Cell Rich Limestone Neoprene

It’s all about performance. As the lightest and most flexible suit in the Quiksilvers range, the HIGHLINE SERIES keeps you warm without holding you back. It features a sleek zipperless design to eliminate unnecessary weight and an ergonomic fit to leave you feeling light, limber, and at the top of your game.

  1. Zipperless – A design that eliminates the weight and bulk of a sewn-in zip closure while increasing your freedom to move. Boom!
  2. F’N Lite – A neoprene that’s made using air cell-rich limestone that minimizes water absorption for increased warmth and decreased weight.
  3. Ecto-Flex Knee Pads – A durable, lightweight, and flexible outer knee pad that protects you and your board.
  4. Glideskin Neck Seal – An ultra-smooth neoprene liner for superior comfort and a watertight seal.
  5. GBS SeamKeeping you warmer, longer. Glued & Blindstitched construction is triple glued and single-blind stitched. The stitching on those seams only partially penetrates neoprene, which reduces water entry.
  6. Fused Edges – Engineered to create an incredibly low profile at the end of the cuffs providing an ergonomic fitting that prevents flushing throughout the neck, wrist, and ankles.
  7. Warmflight – Super warm fleece lining keeps body heat in and outside elements out. This material insulates to keep you warm yet repels water for faster drying time!
  8. Flush Lock 2.0 Seals – Elastic wrist, strategically placed seals to prevent water flushing through wrists and ankles.
  9. F’N Lite Taped – A thin, ultralight seam sealant gives a watertight reinforcement without sacrificing flexibility and weight.

How To Choose

  1. TYPE – Determine which type of wetsuit do you need or want: Chest/Back-Zip, Shorty, or a Full Wetsuit.
  2. THICKNESS – Choose the right thickness for the season.
  3. SIZE – Make sure you get exactly the right size. When you have to choose between two sizes, weight is more important than the height. A wetsuit must fit snug but not too tight.
