[0039] As shown in FIG. 1, one-piece type water sport suit 1 may be used for sports activities such as scuba diving or swimming, triathlon, etc., and may have a role to prevent the body from being damaged from external objects by implementing the warming effect that prevents the body temperature from being lowered during the underwater sports activities.

[0040] The suit may be made of neoprene with good elasticity and polyurethane coating on the outer surface of neoprene. By coating the polyurethane coating on the outer surface of neoprene, it is possible to reduce the surface friction with water and, thus, to facilitate underwater activities.

[0041] The one-piece type water sport suit 1 may be monolithic and may include a lower portion 2 and an upper portion 3. The upper portion may have a neck collar 4 wrapping the neck of the user.

[0042] The neck collar 4 may protect the user's neck by surrounding the user's neck while performing warming around the neck.

[0043] The one-piece type water sport suit 1 may have a zipper 5 on the upper portion thereof. Thus, after the user puts on the one-piece type water sport suit 1, the user may move upwards the zipper 5 to the neck collar 4 to close the upper portion 3.

[0044] Then, the user may couple two attachable/detachable members 10 and 20 to each other. The two attachable/detachable members 10 and 20 may be formed at two opposing ends of the neck collar 4 respectively.

[0045] As shown in FIG. 2, a first attachable/detachable member 10 may be formed on the neck collar 4 at a right end 4a thereof, while a second attachable/detachable member 20 may be formed on the neck collar 4 at a left end 4b thereof.

[0046] In a prior art, the first attachable/detachable member 10 may be replaced with a female Velcro, while the second attachable/detachable member 20 may be replaced with a male Velcro.

[0047] In the case of a person with long hair, hair was caught on the male Velcro. When the Velcro was used for a long time, the adhesion thereof was weakened due to wear of the Velcro.

[0048] In order to solve those problems, in accordance with the present disclosure, each of the first attachable/detachable member 10 and second attachable/detachable member 20 may contain therein magnets. In this connection, the magnets may be embedded therein such that they are hidden.

[0049] When the user wears the one-piece type water sport suit, the first attachable/detachable member 10 may be held in place while the second attachable/detachable member 20 may be coupled to or separated from the first attachable/detachable member 10 in a flap manner.

[0050] As shown in FIG. 2A, the user may separate the second attachable/detachable member 20 from the first attachable/detachable member 10. As shown in FIG. 2B, the user may couple the second attachable/detachable member 20 to the first attachable/detachable member 10.

[0051] In this connection, in order to strength coupling between the first and second attachable/detachable members 10 and 20, each of the first and second attachable/detachable members 10 and 20 may have a plurality of magnets 125 and 225 respectively. The arrangement of the magnets 125 in the first attachable/detachable member 10 may correspond to the arrangement of the magnets 225 in the second attachable/detachable member 20.

[0052] Each of the magnets 125 and 225 may be embodied as neodymium magnets. The present disclosure may not be limited thereto.

[0053] FIG. 3 is an exploded perspective view of the first attachable/detachable member 10.

[0054] The first attachable/detachable member 10 may include a first layer 110, a second layer 120, and a third layer 130.

[0055] The first layer 110 may contact the skin of the user. The second layer 120 may contain therein the magnets 125. The third layer 130 may serve as a top of the first attachable/detachable member 10, which contacts the second attachable/detachable member 20.

[0056] Since the first layer 110 may contact the skin of the user, the first layer 110 may have soft textile layers 111 and 112, for example, nylon layers.

[0057] However, the present disclosure may not be limited thereto. The first layer 110 may be made of any material as long as the material may have a anti-shock function.

[0058] The second layer 120 may include an elastic layer 121 made of neoprene. The elastic layer 121 may have holes 122 defined therein. The magnets holes 122 may be spacedly arranged. The magnets 125 may be received in the holes 122 respectively.

[0059] The third layer 130 may cover the second layer 120. The third layer 130 may have a main layer 131 and a polyurethane coating 132 on the main layer 131. Thus, the polyurethane coating 132 may minimize friction with water.

[0060] The first attachable/detachable member 10 may have a first boundary 10a with the neck collar 4, and a second boundary 10b with the upper portion 3 of the one-piece type water sport suit 1. The first boundary 10a and second boundary 10b may be connected to be continuous.

[0061] Thus, the first attachable/detachable member 10 may be coupled to the neck collar 4 and the upper portion 3 of the one-piece type water sport suit 1 via, for example, a sewing.

[0062] FIG. 5A is a cross sectional view of the first attachable/detachable member 10.

[0063] The first attachable/detachable member 10 may have the first layer 110 which include a first elastic layer 113 made of neoprene, a first textile layer 111 coupled to the first elastic layer 113 and contacting the skin of the user and thus having anti-shock function, and a second textile layer 112 coupled to the first elastic layer 113 and having anti-shock function and contacting the second layer 120.

[0064] The second textile layer 111 may be optional.

[0065] The first elastic layer 113 may be coupled to each of the first and second textile layers 111 and 112 by applying adhesive therebetween and heat-pressing them using a roller.

[0066] Specifically, the adhesive may be applied on the roller and, then, the roller may rotate to allow the adhesive to be applied on the first and second textile layers 111 and 112 and the roller may be pressed toward the layers. The roller may be heated to 130 to 150.degree. C.

[0067] Each of the first and second textile layers 111 and 112 may be made of nylon. Each of the first and second textile layers 111 and 112 may have a thickness of about 0.3 to 0.5 cm to allow the anti-shock function.

[0068] The first attachable/detachable member 10 may have the second layer 120 which includes a second elastic layer 121, holes defined in the second elastic layer 121 and the magnets 125 received in the holes.

[0069] The second elastic layer 121 may be made of neoprene. Each of the holes may have a shape corresponding to a shape of each of the magnets. The holes may be spacedly arranged.

[0070] The first attachable/detachable member 10 may have the third layer 130 which includes a third elastic layer 131 contacting the second layer 120, and a polyurethane coating layer 132 formed on the third elastic layer 131.

[0071] The third elastic layer 131 may be made of neoprene. The polyurethane coating layer 132 may act to lessen friction with water and to provide warmth and comfort to the wearer due to its unique flexibility.

[0072] The polyurethane coating layer 132 may be referred to as PU coating. The polyurethane coating layer 132 may be formed by liquidizing polyurethane resin and mixing the same with a curing agent and applying the mixture on the third elastic layer 131 and curing the mixture by blowing hot air.

[0073] Between the first layer 110 and second layer 120, and between the second layer 120 and third layer 130, adhesives A may be disposed.

[0074] In this connection, as for the adhesive A, chloroprene is the main material thereof. Chloroprene at a solid state may be dissolved into the liquid phase and may be mixed with additives such as solvent, toluene, etc.

[0075] FIG. 4 is an exploded perspective view of the second attachable/detachable member 20.

[0076] The second attachable/detachable member 20 may include a first layer 210, a second layer 220, and a third layer 230.

[0077] The first layer 210 may contact the third layer 130 of the first attachable/detachable member 10. The second layer 220 may contain therein the magnets 225. The third layer 230 may serve as a top of the second attachable/detachable member 20.

[0078] When the second attachable/detachable member 20 contacts the first attachable/detachable member 10, the third layer 230 of the second attachable/detachable member 20 may be exposed outwardly.

[0079] As shown in FIG. 2, the second attachable/detachable member 20 may have a first boundary 20a with the neck collar 4 on the other end 4b thereof, and a second boundary 20b with the upper portion 3 of the one-piece type water sport suit 1. The first boundary 20a and second boundary 20b may be connected to be continuous.

[0080] Thus, the second attachable/detachable member 20 may be coupled to the neck collar 4 and the upper portion 3 of the one-piece type water sport suit 1 via, for example, a sewing.

[0081] FIG. 5B is a cross sectional view of the second attachable/detachable member 20.

[0082] The second attachable/detachable member 20 may have the first layer 210 which include a first elastic layer 211 made of neoprene, and a polyurethane coating layer 212 on the first elastic layer 211. The polyurethane coating layer 212 may face the first attachable/detachable member 10.

[0083] The polyurethane coating layer 212 may be referred to as PU coating. The polyurethane coating layer 212 may be formed by liquidizing polyurethane resin and mixing the same with a curing agent and applying the mixture on the first elastic layer 211 and curing the mixture by blowing hot air.

[0084] The second attachable/detachable member 20 may have the second layer 220 which includes a second elastic layer 221, holes defined in the second elastic layer 221 and the magnets 225 received in the holes.

[0085] The second elastic layer 221 may be made of neoprene.

[0086] Each of the holes may have a shape corresponding to a shape of each of the magnets. The holes may be spacedly arranged.

[0087] The second elastic layer 221 may be similar to the second elastic layer 121 of the first attachable/detachable member 20.

[0088] The second attachable/detachable member 20 may have the third layer 230 which includes a third elastic layer 231 contacting the second layer 220, and a polyurethane coating layer 232 formed on the third elastic layer 231.

[0089] The third elastic layer 231 may be made of neoprene. The polyurethane coating layer 232 may act to lessen friction with water and to provide warmth and comfort to the wearer due to its unique flexibility.

[0090] In this way, the first attachable/detachable member 10 and second attachable/detachable member 20 may have magnets 125 and 225 respectively. The magnets 125 and 225 allow mutual coupling between the first and second attachable/detachable members 10 and 20.

[0091] The magnets 125, 225 may not be damaged for a long use. Thus, the first and second attachable/detachable members 10 and 20 may have good coupling for a long use.

[0092] Although, in this embodiment, the first attachable/detachable member 10 and second attachable/detachable member 20 have the magnets 125 and 225, the present disclosure is not limited thereto. One of the first attachable/detachable member 10 and second attachable/detachable member 20 contains magnets, the other of the first attachable/detachable member 10 and second attachable/detachable member 20 contains metal materials, for example, iron.

[0093] For example, the first attachable/detachable member 10 may contain the magnets, the second attachable/detachable member 20 contains metal materials, for example, iron. Alternatively, the second attachable/detachable member 20 may contain the magnets, the first attachable/detachable member 10 contains metal materials, for example, iron.

[0094] Each of the first and second attachable/detachable members 10 and 20 may have a soft textile or polyurethane coating layer as an outer face thereof. Thus, there is an advantage that the hair of the user is not tangled or the skin is damaged.

[0095] As shown in FIG. 2A and FIG. 6A, in order to take off the one-piece type water sport suit, the second attachable/detachable member 20 may be separated from the first attachable/detachable member 10 in a flap manner.

[0096] As shown in FIG. 2B and FIG. 6B, in order to put on the one-piece type water sport suit 1 and close the neck collar 4, the second attachable/detachable member 20 may be moved toward the first attachable/detachable member 10, and, then, the first and second attachable/detachable members 10 and 20 may be automatically coupled to each other via attraction force between the magnets 125, 225 embedded in the first and second attachable/detachable member 10 and 20 respectively.

[0097] Although the magnets 125, 225 are received in the first and second attachable/detachable members 10 and 20 respectively, the layers of each of the first and second attachable/detachable members 10 and 20 may not be thick. Further, the magnets 125, 225 may have the strong magnetic force, and, thus, the coupling force between the first and second attachable/detachable member 10 and 20 may be not weakened.

[0098] The above description is not to be taken in a limiting sense, but is made merely for the purpose of describing the general principles of exemplary embodiments, and many additional embodiments of this disclosure are possible. It is understood that no limitation of the scope of the disclosure is thereby intended. The scope of the disclosure should be determined with reference to the Claims. Reference throughout this specification to "one embodiment," "an embodiment," or similar language means that a particular feature, structure, or characteristic that is described in connection with the embodiment is included in at least one embodiment of the present disclosure. Thus, appearances of the phrases "in one embodiment," "in an embodiment," and similar language throughout this specification may, but do not necessarily, all refer to the same embodiment.
