Choose your wetsuit wisely: Temperature matters

Choose your wetsuit wisely ... temperature matters

The days getting longer and you’re looking forward to a day on the shore. But how to choose a wetsuit for suitable for all season's, or specific ones, or certain temperatures...?

Despite of what most people think, wetsuits aren’t meant to keep you dry. A wetsuit is meant to protect your body and keep you warm during your water sports practices. Choose your wetsuit wisely and take differences in stretch, neoprene-thickness and technical innovations into account. Water temperature and weather circumstances serve as a good starting point. When facing colder waters and heavier weather circumstances go with a full suit or a Steamer. These ranges are engineered with thicker neoprene (starting from 3/2 mm up till 5/3 mm) and are equipped with lots of technical innovations to keep the heat and loose the water – by glued seams for instance. Choose a shorty and/or thinner neoprene when you go and play on and in pleasant water temperatures: this range starts from 1.5 mm neoprene-thickness and can be recognized by innovations like breathable stitched constructions
