In this post you can find information about HUUB Aegis 3 and Aegis X wetsuit – description and key features from the manufacturer website plus added reviews and experiences from users. Interesting is the word choice of the wetsuit name. The aegis as stated in the Iliad, is carried by Athena and Zeus, but its nature is uncertain. It had been interpreted as an animal skin or a shield, sometimes bearing the head of a Gorgon.
