Beuchat patented Precut System:

How to transform long johns into waist cut pants easily and in total safety

With the PreCut System, both distributors and retailers now only need to stock a single line of adjustable pants to offer each of their customers the garment that they are looking for.

The PreCut System is an exclusive patent-protected Beuchat innovation that enables a long john style bottom to be transformed into proper waist cut pants in complete safety. It allows the long john to be modified quickly and simply without affecting the efficiency of the garment and without requiring any other correction.

Our designers have created a groove on the garment to represent an ideally positioned waistline that is as secure and straightforward when cut as on a ready-made garment. The PreCut System also includes anti-fray protection to ensure that the fabric will not unravel after the cut as well as reinforcement patches on the pants to secure the bonding seams.

As regards in-store stocks, the Precut System enables retailers to:

– satisfy the demands of their customers (e.g. by avoiding situations where the customer wants a long john but the store only has waist cut pants left in stock) and improve the quality of their stock mix

– offer their customers the same great choice (pants with shoulder straps, waist-cut pants) while stocking fewer items, thus freeing up space for more sizes

Magic Camo high performance camouflage

Selected natural colour camouflage that only becomes visible in the water to conceal the presence of the spearfisher

Rationale:

A spearfishing suit is used in the water, so a camouflage suit must be designed to be effective in the water

However, many spearfishers would prefer apparel that is less conspicuous when they are out of the water

Our solution: Magic Camo

Additionally, to optimise the effect of concealment, we have selected two-tone pants to further break up the spearfisher?s silhouette.

Reinforcements:

Long protective reinforcements in Supratex 2 (combining flexibility and resistance to abrasion) at elbows and knees for more strength and flexibility

Reinforced stress pad integrated at bust level on the top to provide:

better stability when loading a long and powerful speargun to prevent the butt slipping

a larger camouflage area on the suit

Edging & finishes:

Neoprene panels bonded edge-to-edge with external overlock.

Edges finished with smoth, attractive grooving to provide better water tightness, a more stylish finish and more resilience during dressing and undressingMagic Camo high performance camouflage

Beuchat, inventor of the isothermal wetsuit

Georges Beuchat creator of the company was an emblematic pioneer of underwater activities. He naturally tried to protect himself from the cold during diving. This is the way that after several experimentations, led in the creeks of Marseille, he invents in 1953 the isothermal wetsuit.

This fundamental invention has played a key role in the development of underwater activities. And more than sixty years later, its bases remain valid although materials and methods evolved.
