First, let's just talk about what a wetsuit does and why it works. Wetsuits provide a great way for surfers, swimmers, and anyone else who likes the water to stay in it all year long. A wetsuit is made from neoprene and is designed as either a shorty or full suit that keeps you warm and dries out quickly. A wetsuit keeps you warm by trapping a thin layer of water between you and the suit. Your body heats this layer of water so you won't lose too much heat when you're in the water keeping you warm.
What type of Women's wetsuit should I buy?
In order to stay warm, you need to pick the right wetsuit thickness for your body of water and activity. Jobe has one of the largest selections of women's wetsuits, and a great guide on how to pick the right one for you!
Neoprene thickness is important because neoprene keeps you warm. Wetsuit thickness is normally represented as two numbers separated by a slash. Essentially, the first number tells you how thick the Neoprene is across the chest, and the next number tells you how thick the Neoprene is across the arms and legs. One of our best wetsuits, the Women's Jobe Sofia, is an example of this.
You can also choose between a Women's shorty
, a Women's fullsuit
, a Women's steamer
or a 2-piece Wetsuit for Women.
The next thing to consider is the way in which a wetsuit will and should fit. A wetsuit should fit perfectly with no sagging in the back and no bunching in the arms or the legs. The suit has to fit snug so that only a thin layer of water is between your body and the suit. If you wear a too-loose suit, water will get in, making it less effective at keeping you warm. So you want to make sure that the wetsuit fits tight around your neck, wrists, and ankles so that water can't pass through, otherwise, it's not going to work.
Why you should buy a Jobe Women's Wetsuit
Let's see what makes a women's Jobe wetsuit so special. Jobe wetsuits are made of the best quality neoprene. As a result, the level of stretch is much higher than that of our competitors' wetsuits. In addition, each wetsuit includes specific ergonomic panels for maximum comfort and freedom of movement. We take it a step further and make sure the steamers have drainage thermo inner liners so you stay nice and warm. This technique keeps you warm while draining the cold water. Finally, Jobe's seams have been reinforced to last through multiple seasons.
