Best wetsuit for men
No matter what style of wetsuit you choose, it is important to make sure that it fits properly. Wetsuits should be snug but not too tight, and they should allow for some flexibility. It is also important to pay attention to the length of the wetsuit. Wetsuits that are too short will ride up on your body, while wetsuits that are too long will be difficult to move in and limit your freedom of movement which is not ideal. It is also important to take note of the water temperature. If the water is very cold then you will need a wetsuit that is suitable for those colder conditions and if the water is warmer then there are speciality options also available for this. Our range of men wetsuit come in a variety of styles and designs from wetsuits with the zip at the back to wetsuits with no arms, with arms, zips at the front of the chest and short wetsuits that go down to your knees and full length wetsuits that cover your entire body. All of our range are suitable for a variety of sports and our detailed product descriptions provide insights into the best sport and environment for each wetsuit on offer.
How thick should my wetsuit be?
It is important to take note of the environment that you enter before you purchase a new wetsuit. If you plan to use your new wetsuit for surfing or snorkeling for example then this water is warmer water and it is best to choose a neoprene wetsuit that is 2mm thick. The 2mm thick wetsuit is also ideal for surfing, paddling, canoeing and kayaking. The 2mm wetsuit also comes in different variations such as in short form which is perfect for canoeing as it provides more freedom of movement while in the canoe. There is also another wetsuit option that is 3/4 length that is preferred by some. On the flip side, for water temperatures that are very cold and you plan to undertake a triathlon, or you are a fan of winter swimming or diving then our team would advise you to choose a 4mm thick neoprene wetsuit in order to ensure your body temperature stays at a healthy level. It is also advised that in the colder waters that you purchase a full length wetsuit to ensure your entire body is protected from the colder elements and your skin isn't exposed. Then there is the middle option of cooler water where a 3/2 wetsuit option would be ideal.
