Wetsuit buying advice

Postby Pablo » Wed Dec 05, 2012 9:41 am

Hi,

I'm looking to buy my first wetsuit, around the £100 mark. Checking online for some and these are a few I like the look of;

Rip Curl - Dawn Patrol 5/3
Tiki - Prodigy 5/4/3
C-Skins - Legend 5/3
O'neill - Epic 5/3
Alder - Stelth 5/3

I understand that fit is one of the main keys areas and fully intend to try them on first, just wanted to know if any are to be avoided from your experience.

Thanks
Pablo

Experience only with the C-Skins and the ONeill brands, owned two C-Skins and an ONeill Mutant. Used to sell C-Skins too, both good brands. I'd go for C-Skins I think,purely because they're a British company and warranty returns etc. will be much easier.
