Seams are the thread connection of two or more wetsuit panels which are usually also glued together to create a waterproof seal. Most wetsuit seams are blind stiched together with a needle that doesn’t penetrate the neoprene completely to prevent leaks. Seams can be reinforced with a liquid rubber outside seal and a neoprene tape inside taping on more high-end wetsuits. A more efficient type of seam is done by flatlock or overlock stitching, but this seam is not waterproof and is only used on summer wetsuits and shorties used in warm waters.
