Xcel's Drylock TDC series continues to redefine coldwater wetsuit and accessory performance, receiving two nominations for 2015 Surf Industry Manufacturers Association (SIMA) Image Awards.
Nominated for Wetsuit of the Year, the Drylock TDC fullsuit now features even more TDC Thermo Dry Celliant, an Xcel exclusive and our warmest material ever.
In addition to featuring the most TDC of any Xcel wetsuit series, the Drylock TDC is also the only Xcel series with a 100% waterproof Drylock entry system, 100% water-repellent exterior, and our stitch-free FusionWeld Seam Technology for the ultimate warmth, stretch, and performance from head to toe.
New for 2015, the Drylock TDC features a plush high-pile TDC lining in the entire front and back body for maximum core warmth. An infrared-print, low-pile TDC lining in the shoulders and lower legs also seals in warmth and helps ensure maximum flexibility.
TDC is also featured in the Drylock TDC boot, nominated for SIMA's Hardgoods Accessory Product of the Year. The inside boot is fully lined with TDC, and is the most innovative surf bootie on the market today, with seamless Drylock ankle seals, a 100% watertight construction, ergonomically angled Velcro straps, and a thin, lightweight sole for the ultimate true-to-the-board feel.
TDC is the first and only material with clinically proven Smart Fiber Technology that converts body heat into infrared energy for a wide range of warmth and performance benefits. Naturally hydrophobic, fast drying, and lightweight, TDC begins to work from the moment it's worn against the skin.
The SIMA Image Awards program identifies the surf industry's most influential and innovative companies, and recognizes them for their efforts to advance and grow the industry. Nominees were selected by an expert panel of manufacturers and retailers. Winners will be determined by SIMA members and specialty retailers, and will be announced at the SIMA Image Awards ceremony on February 11, 2016 at the City National Grove of Anaheim (Anaheim, CA).
