STEALTHSCREEN fullsuits can conceal human electric signals
Nov '11
HECS, a global leader in concealment textiles headquartered in Oregon, announces its partnership with Xcel in developing wetsuits that will enable divers to get closer to marine life. Leading international wetsuit brand Xcel will release HECS STEALTHSCREEN fullsuits, which feature cuttingedge concealment technology designed to give divers greater proximity to underwater marine life than ever before.

Already proving it's efficacy in the hunting community, HECS STEALTHSCREEN technology material is endorsed by the Pelagic Shark Research Foundation, Santa Cruz, California.

Mike Slinkard, President of HECS LLC, says the relationship with Xcel is a natural progression for the HECS technology. “HECS STEALTHSCREEN has major benefits to divers,” says Mike.

“All living things, including humans, emit faint electric signals. Many marine species are able to detect and react to these signals. HECS STEALTHSCREEN reduces the human electric signal, allowing divers to experience life underwater in its natural undisturbed state.”

“The unique HECS STEALTHSCREEN material is incorporated into the Xcel wetsuit as an inner lining made of conductive carbon fibers that are designed to reduce the human body's electric signal, while delivering the highest standards of comfort, performance, and flexibility for which Xcel wetsuits are known.”

Xcel's HECS STEALTHSCREEN fullsuits are available in multiple thicknesses, including camouflage-patterned colors for greater visual concealment in underwater environments.

HECS is a world leader in concealment technology. An Oregon-based company, HECS also supplies apparel and equipment to the hunting industry. HECS STEALTHSCREEN's conductive carbon grid works to reduce the electric signal emitted by the human body.

Founded in 1982, Xcel International Inc (Xcel) is a global brand distributed throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia, and the Pacific Rim. Headquartered on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii, Xcel's core wetsuit business focuses on the cutting edge of material and design development.
