Open water wetsuit

    Time for me to buy a new wetsuit. I've busted my old zone3.

    I tried a 2xu proper P2 and it is nice.

    But I was also looking at the Blueseventy fusion or reaction.

    I'll be swimming into the winter but have a thin base layer top that keeps me warm.

    Has anybody any recommendations or tried the brands I listed? Thanks

    Hi Bridest, am in the same boat as yourself but buying for the first time. What mm suit would you recommend and would you only be going for a full length suit?

    Yes full length, you won't get use out of a short suit. Try go for something with at least 4 or 5mm in some areas around hip and or chest

    Hi all, looking at buying my 1st wetsuit for open water, budget circa 200 quid. Not sure if to buy online or not as I don't know my size & don't want to be messing about with returns etc. Where would the place to go bricks & mortar? In Cork area. Will travel if necessary.

    Height wise I'd be 5ft 10/11, weight 95Kg, suppose 5mm thick full wet suit/neoprene would be the wat I am going. Any other advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks everyone
