Why Buy An Open Water Swimming Wetsuit?
When thinking about which suit to buy it's always a good idea to think about what time of year you will be intending to enter the water. In the winter months your choices are limited to a standard 5mm wetsuit as you need the thicker neoprene to stay warm. It is no bad thing to have a standard multi purpose wetsuit as not only will you be able to use the suit for swimming but also for other water sports that you may choose to participate in. As all wetsuits generally have the super stretch neoprene in the upper body and lumber regions you still benefit from the freedom of movement. Not only do you have the movement but also most have a poly pro lining that is designed to keep your body warm. Great brands to consider would be O'Neill and Rip Curl as they both produce entry level wetsuits that are of a very high quality. Take a look at the O'Neill Epic
