What wetsuit?

Postby RRS_ONE » Tue Jan 18, 2011 9:04 am

I'm wanting to buy my first wetsuit but not sure which one I should be going for.I'll mostly be using it for winter in Scotland so am thinking a 5mm one would be good?
As for size, I'm 6'5 205 lbs with a 35/36" waist.....so the only one I can see sofar is a O Neill XLT or maybe an XCel XLT...If anyone has an opinion about me being on the right track or not I'd like to hear it.
Also, if anyone's got a suit for sale....
Thanks for reading!

Loads of threads on this mate, put in winter wetsuit in the search tool bar and theres plenty of advice.
While im here though you cant go wrong with the new hooded Oneill Pyschofreak- we're of similar build i find the Oneills suit my shape very well. Excels have a great rep too. best to get yourself to the local shop and try them both on.
Hope that helps

xcel, cskins, oneil, find a dealer like the wetsuit centre in bournemouth that has them all and spend an age picking the right one, best fit wins the day
