Wet Suit

What is a Wet Suit?

A wet suit is a garment of foam neoprene that insulates a diver/swimmer/surfer from the cold by allowing a thin film of water to penetrate between the suit and the body.

Some wet suits are specifically designed for triathlon training.

How do Wet Suits Work?

Wet suits are designed to insulate your body. The bubbles in the neoprene insulate you against the colder water outside the suit, by trapping a thin layer of water in the suit, which is warmed by your body, and by reducing the flow of water around your body.

Suits that fit poorly under the arms and around the thighs may allow too much water to collect there, robbing you of your body heat.

The colder the water, thicker the suit needs to be to keep you comfortable.

Finding a Wet Suit that are Best for You

The first step in finding wet suits that suit you is to determine your needs.

Once you determine your needs, you can start looking for wet suits that meet your needs.

Make sure you try on different sizes, brands, and models.
