      Protection from the elements is the most important protection for spearfishing. Spears and freedivers spend hours on and in the water, so a quality suit that keeps you as warm as possible is vital. Spearfishing suits typically come in two types; closed-cell "normal" wetsuits and two-piece open-cell wetsuits.
      Open-cell suits are made from the same neoprene but have no nylon lining inside, leading to a suit that is significantly warmer as there is no barrier between the skin and neoprene. They are more stretchy, however, they must be lubricated in order to be worn as the unlined neoprene is sticky when dry! Dive Newcastle recommends a two-piece, open-cell suit of 3-5mm for most Australian waters.
