Henderson SPEC / OPS SAR Wetsuits | Henderson wetsuits for both military and civilian tactical applications. | Made in the USA | BAA: Buy American Act Compliant Wetsuit ProgramHenderson has developed wetsuit systems for both military and civilian applications. Henderson has been the exclusive supplier of water rescue suits to the USCG for more then 20 years. These rescue suits have been proven during tens of thousands of hours of intense Search and Rescue operations. Every suit is hand crafted to exact specifications in Henderson's USA factory.

All SPEC OPS/SAR wetsuits are constructed from Henderson's exclusive Hyperstretch Thermoprene wetsuit material. The increased elasticity of Hyperstretch has multiple benefits, including less muscle fatigue and greater range of motion when bending, squatting, kicking and reaching. This is one of the reasons Hyperstretch is used in Henderson's Rescue Swimmer and SPEC OPS/SAR Wetsuit lines, where freedom of movement and swimmer endurance are critical.

If you require assistance selecting the appropriate items for your Public Safety Diving Team and/or Surface Water Rescue Team, we are here to help. Please contact our Public Safety Sales Dept. at (651) 681-8434 or email

Henderson Fire Fleece Technology |
These wetsuits are internally lined with Henderson’s exclusive Fire Fleece lining. Fire Fleece lining is an ultra-high stretch, low pile, synthetic fleece which is incredibly comfortable. This comfort will enhance performance during extended deployment. Fire Fleece lining also contributes to the 300% stretch of the material making all land and water based movements nearly resistance-free. This significantly reduces the effort required to move in a wetsuit and significantly increases energy stores for thermal regulation during prolong exposure. Fire Fleece lining minimizes water transfer throughout the wetsuit resulting in maximum thermal conservation.

All the seams on Fire Fleece 3, 5, and 7mm wetsuits are double glued and then blind stitched inside and out (most wetsuits are only sewn on one side). This provides longevity, confidence, and performance in the most demanding conditions.

The exterior laminate is also pill-resistant. Pilling occurs when wetsuits are exposed to hook and loop style fasteners, non-slip swim platforms, BCD’s and other gear worn along with the wetsuit. No high stretch wetsuit is “pill proof”, but the Fire Fleece exterior will resist pilling and abrasion significantly better than other wetsuit laminates and will significantly increase replacement cycle times.

The time proven, back zip entry design significantly accelerates the speed at which users can be in the wetsuit and ready to deploy. Rear zip entry configurations are well suited for use in confined spaces and tight quarters, like helicopter cabins or surface deployment vessels. The suits can be easily unzipped for comfort and quickly re-zipped prior to deployment.
