Thermalution Compact Dive Series (70M)
Nearly identical to the core 15m model, the only difference lies in the temperature control unit, which is designed to withhold water pressures of up to 250ft below the surface! Thermalution can be taken with divers on the longest and deepest of dives, helping to warm you when your body alone cannot produce enough heat to keep you warm throughout the dive. With three levels of adjustable heat, your Thermalution heated wetsuit can be adjusted with the push of a button, giving you the warmth you need when you dive deep with the ability to turn off quickly for that warmer safety stop.
Similar to any base layer clothing (like Under Armor®) Thermalution Undersuits can be worn beneath any wetsuit, dry suit, or jacket. It's most effective to wear directly on your skin.
Wearing beneath a wetsuit
Thermal protection of a wetsuit is limited to insulate your body and minimize heat loss. The thicker the neoprene, the warmer you'll feel, but you may get extremely exhausted by putting a thick wetsuit on. With our Thermalution® Power Heated Undersuit, you can say good-bye to a thick wetsuit and enjoy a fun cold water sport with a thinner wetsuit, because Thermlation generates heat instead of only been able to reduce heat loss. By wearing Thermalution® Power Heated Undersuit beneath your wetsuit it distributes the heat through whole body by the water underneath your wetsuit.
Battery and Controller
Thermalution Heated Undersuits use two 7.4 volt Lithium Polymer batteries. Battery Size: 4x2x0.5 Inches.
These are the same type of batteries found in your mobile phone or mp3 player. There is no danger of radiation, electric shock or explosion from these batteries. Batteries are compact and lightweight and are positioned outside of the undersuit at the sides of the chest, under the arms. It offers maximum freedom of movement and it's easy to change batteries.
Thermalution micro controllers are easy to use. To turn on the undersuit push and hold button for 2 sec. On start up it displays a green light and starts temperature on low. Push once more to change to medium temperature with an orange light indication and once more to change to high with a red light indication. To turn the undersuit off simply push and hold button for 2 sec.

Where have you been all my diving life!?!
Posted by Randal on 29th Apr 2013
Normally when I dive the cold San Diego/Southern California waters I come up shivering, my fingers and toes are numb. Well, not on the first time diving with this Thermalution Compact Dive Series (70M) heating system. In fact I was so comfortable I was able to extend my dive time, in 50° F water, with my buddy who was in her drysuit before getting cold. I have an amazing video of me being so comfortable that I was able to do a meditation pose here is a link https://picasaweb.google.com/117030319344885783717/ZENAndTheArtOfAHeatedWetsuit?authuser=0&feat=directlink
I am such a happy customer I need to buy an extra set of batteries so when I go out on the boats I can switch a set of fresh batteries during my surface interval.
Also, I would like to mention that delivery for my order was perfect, it was shipped right as promised and received by the third day. All was communicated promptly, excellent communication!
Thank you for selling such a good product.

I loved the heated wetsuit. I passed it around to other women in my dive group who chill easily and they also thought it was a fantastic addition to the arsenal of dive gear. After the first dive day I was hooked.
Great Solution for a Warm Water Wimp
Posted by Deb on 1st Apr 2013
I've been diving for about 12 years and always get cold, even in 80-degree water wearing a 3mm wetsuit. I don't like wearing a 5mm wetsuit in tropical locations because of the bulk and the extra weight needed. The Thermalution Compact Dive Series (70M) is a great solution to my problem. I had many questions before purchasing, which Matt at HeatedWetsuits.com answered quickly and thoroughly. I tried the shirt as soon as it arrived and everything worked perfectly. Can't wait to dive with it!
I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS!

This is such a great product. It works just as promised. On a recent trip to the Galapagos the water temperature ranged from 80 degress to 54 degrees - sometimes in the same dive. The lightness of the Thermalution shirt let me wear it on all dives and have heat available if the temperature dropped. I have recommended it to numerous people, and I know several divers on our boat will be getting some soon.
Toasty warm diving

Just like it promised, this vest keeps you warm under you wet suit. No need to get more mil in wet suit or more weights.
The solution for cold divers (cold water not required)

Matt at heatedwetsuits.com has been everything Scuter said in his review "Cold dive more fun when you're warmer!" from 3rd Aug 2012. Thank you Matt!
My wife and I do warm water diving and always take our 70M Thermalution shirts. She depends on hers to stay warm above and below; mine is forced on sceptics to prove these heated shirts work and that, no, you don't get electrocuted :)
My wife has tried core warmers, Lavacore, thicker wetsuits, and numerous hoods and beanies, all in various combinations, and she swears none of it keeps her comfortable without the Thermalution shirt.
Just recently I had to buy her extra batteries because she did not want to turn her Thermalution off during chilly surface intervals. Stealing my batteries was not an option: I've got the older model with 3-prong battery connections instead of the newer 2-prong.
Personal opinion: I think the sleeveless is a better choice for a week of diving (sniff, phew).
I know Matt would sell more shirts if he could get the price down, but I'm glad I could afford the shirts I have.
Warmth in a northern Ohio quarry
Posted by Mark on 17th Oct 2012
Used a Thermalution t-shirt last weekend in northern Ohio. I kept the heat setting at low for most of my dives. Worked very well. It was also nice to have on after exiting the water soaking wet into a cold wind. I plan on purchasing another one. Nice product.
Thermalution heated rashguard
Posted by Lisa P. on 11th Aug 2012
Used the Thermalution for a week of diving in Monterey , CA. The water temp ranged from 51 to 47 degrees and I stayed comfortable on each dive, each dive lasting about 60 minutes. I was able to keep up with my buddies wearing drysuits. Position of battery packs were great, did not feel them and they did not interfere with my wetsuit or BC. Just attached control switch to my BC with velcro, very easy to reach and control temp, even with 5 mil gloves on. Great product.
Cold dive more fun when you're warmer!
Posted by Scuter on 3rd Aug 2012
I just bought the 70M heated undersuit and used it to dive Lake Tahoe. Water temps were from 59-64 degrees. I can compare the temps to a dive a few months ago in Catalina where water temps were 58-63. The Thermalution shirt really helped to keep me warmer in Tahoe than I was in Catalina. I wasn't toasty snuggly warm in my tight fitting 7mil wetsuit, but I was much much warmer than I was in Catalina and that makes it worth it. I could tell that with the heated undershirt, that I wasn't cold like I would have been and it made a cold dive more fun because I wasn't shivering! I wonder if my wetsuit wasn't quite as form fitting as it is, it would have warmed more water within the suit? I think it's a good purchase. Slightly pricey, but way cheaper than a drysuit and that's really the only other option for warmth. Having dove with and without the heated shirt, I will definitely use it for all my cold water dives. Not having a drysuit, I think this is a great option to help with the cold.
I also have to mention that Matt from heatedwetsuits.com has one of the best customer service attitudes that I've come across. He was extremely helpful, nice, and communicative in a very timely manner, even on vacation. I had ordered a medium shirt, found it was too small and he sent me back a large immediately before even receiving the medium that I sent back. His attitude and customer service goes a LONG way in my book. Kudo's to Matt and the heated undersuit.
A must buy for cold water divers
Posted by Rick Kindel on 19th Jul 2012
I purchased this item with a fair amount of skeptisim. I wasnt sure that it would be worth the cash.. was I wrong.. my most recent dive was in Lake 16, martin MI. This lake is always cold.. got down to 70ft, 44 degrees Farnheight... and if it wasnt for my hands.. I wouldnt have even noticed the water..wearing a 7mm wetsuit.. if they found a way to intergrate the heat to gloves and boots.. I would be in heaven..
The weight of the shirt with batteries when wet, and the low cut of the shirt are the only 2 items that keep it from a 5 star rating..
