ELIOS COMBINES ADVANCED NEOPRENE TECHNOLOGY WITH A TRADITION OF HANDCRAFTED PRECISION.

ITALIAN EXPERTISE

Elios was founded in 1977 in response to Morosini's friends' requests and competition divers for a wetsuit like the ones he made for himself. Originally a tailor by trade, and too poor to buy a wetsuit off-the-shelf at the time, Morosini sourced leftover neoprene material from manufacturers to create his own wetsuits.

He continued to refine his tailoring approach, establishing a tradition of constant improvement for the team today. As word spread among the worldwide diving community, Elios became the go-to brand for those who take their adventures in the water seriously.

The craftsmanship behind the perfect cut of Elios suits is a closely-held secret. Today specialist tailors continue to create suits of exceptional quality for the same family business, working with trusted distributors such as Elios Australia to provide local support.

FROM THE MOROSINI FAMILY TAILORS IN ITALY TO THE SOUTHERN OCEANS OF AUSTRALIA.

Why Custom by Elios

EXCEPTIONAL FIT

Order once for a perfect fit for life. Like many others who have experienced an Elios, you may never buy another off-the-shelf wetsuit ever again. Do more, see more, feel more.

MAXIMUM WARMTH

Wetsuits work by trapping water next to your skin. Too loose, and there's flush. Too tight, and you compress the neoprene and bloodflow. Custom-fit means it sits perfectly on you, minimising compression and flush, for maximum warmth. It's so good that we have customers that take our wetsuits to 0 degree water. No need for fancy linings, underlayers or semi-dry suits.

TRUE FREEDOM

Zero restriction, full flexibility, nothing too loose, nothing too tight, perfect warmth. This is an underwater experience like no other.

CURATED NEOPRENES ONLY

We curate every neoprene we use. If you have ever fought to get into a wetsuit, there's a reason why - apart from not being fitted to you, many cheaper wetsuits use low-quality neoprenes - losing flexibility and comfort. Every neoprene we stock has been chosen for its quality, even for our entry-level range.

40-YEAR FAMILY TRADITION

The fit is as good as your tailors are, and tailoring is an art. Elios master tailors have spent 40 years refining their cuts and techniques, bringing proprietary method that no others have been able to replicate. Our tailoring methods are a tightly held family tradition, passed down from father to son.
