EXPERIENCE THE NEO LINE. The original coating that predated Hypalon was Neoprene (NEO) and we still offer it today. The NEO line is priced 10% less than stock Hypalon models. Manufacturing our Neoprene fabric is less involved without Hypalon’s color pigment process, so we’re able to pass the savings on to you. Hypalon and Neoprene are both synthetic rubber materials and the NEO line boasts the same exact model design and construction, in beautiful shiny, rotocured black, with the same urethane bottom chafers and durability you’ve come to expect from HYSIDE.
