Item Description

MAKO Spearguns Yamamoto Y45 Freedive Wetsuit

This MAKO - Yamamoto Y45 Freedive wetsuit was designed with input from top freediver around the world and is produced in cooperation with Yamamoto of Japan, featuring the Yamamoto #45 open cell neoprene. This neoprene is used by more World Champion Freedivers and Freedive Instructors than any other neoprene in the world and now it's available for all freedivers at a very affordable "MAKO DIRECT" price.

Known for its amazing warmth and incredible flexibility, this Yamamoto #45 neoprene wetsuit is complemented by the most stretchy and durable outer material produced. We call it Yamamoto "Mega Stretch” and nothing else compares to the stretch and durability offered by this exciting new material.

Why is stretch so important? Ask accomplished freedivers and freedive instructors and all will say the same thing. A great freedive suit has NO restriction of movement in any part of your body. This is equally true for the arms, legs and shoulders, as it is for the lower, middle, and upper portions of the abdomen and chest. As soon as you put this suit on, you will feel how much better you can expand your chest cavity and move your arms and legs with absolutely no resistance from your Y45 suit.

By combining valuable input from accomplished freedivers, with the very best Yamamoto #45 neoprene and Mega Stretch outer material, we can say with certainty, this freedive suit is the best of the best.

We at MAKO Spearguns want to express our sincere thanks to Yamamoto of Japan and our freedive instructor friends who have helped us develop such a remarkable suit. We are truly grateful for the opportunity to offer such a great freedive wetsuit to the freediving community. And, we stand committed to our customers with our “100% customer satisfaction guarantee”, our “commitment to unprecedented customer service” and our “Buy Direct from MAKO Price Guarantee”.

MAKO Yamamoto Y45 Freedive Suit Specifications:

  • Yamamoto 45 Neoprene: The most preferred open cell neoprene by the top freedivers in the world
  • Yamamoto Mega Stretch: Outer material offers the most stretch and durability over any other material
  • Raglan sleeve: This is a huge improvement over lesser quality suits that have tubular style arms. The Raglan Sleeve is a much more ergonomic and contoured cut which offers significantly increased comfort and range of movement for the arms
  • 2 pc suit (Jacket and Pants): Jacket includes integrated hood with face seal, and wrist seals. High waist pants include ankle seals. The seals on the face, wrists and ankles eliminate water flowing throughout the suit, so you stay warm and comfortable

Available in 3mm or 5mm

Our wetsuits are certified by Tomizo Yamamoto (President of YAMAMOTO Corporation) and me (Dano Krahling, President of MAKO Spearguns) to be Genuine YAMAMOTO Neoprene.

NOTE: As you can see, these suits do not have the chest loading pad and knee pads found on our spearfishing suits. All of our freedive friends tell us they cause too much drag and add too much buoyancy. Although the Y45 suits are made primarily for pure freediving, we do offer an optional “short sleeve rashguard with chest loading pad” in case you would like to hunt for some dinner after a day of line diving.

NOTE: This is an open cell suit. All quality freedive suits must be treated with an extra level of care, particularly when putting the suit on and off. This means you must lube the inside of the suit and lube your body with a solution of non petroleum based hair conditioner. The more the better. Do not try to put this suit on without first lubing.

We recommend " Suit Slide" a scent free, non petroleum based lubricant designed for Spearfishermen. Once applied, putting on an open cell suit (unlined) is actually faster than putting on a closed cell (lined) suit.

Also, check out Suit Fresh - the first product to clean, remove odors and condition your suit all in one. It is made with organic ingredients. It eliminates odors, uric acids, sweat, salts and sunscreen. EZ sprayer to make cleaning wetsuits fast, effective and easy. Suit FRESH does not require pre-mixing or a multiple step cleaning process.

As a professional freediving instructor, it is critical that my dive gear stand up to the rigors of diving every day. I've chosen MAKO for my wetsuits. All my MAKO gear is comfortable, affordable and has always performed as it should, no exceptions. I would recommend MAKO products to anyone.

    absolutely recommend the suit to anyone

    Posted by JOHN DORNELLAS on Jan 21st 2015

    I use the 5mm all black y45 up in New York primarily and love it. The fit is perfect, although the face is a little tight, the lower jaw of the hood tends to creep down and get a little tight around my neck. Overall I really like how flexible and comfy the suit is. The cut is well thought out. It felt like I had on a 3mm suit but was warm while hunting striped bass. I would absolutely recommend the suit to anyone. The price point can't be beat either.
