I NEED DO PRACTICE SWIMMING ALL YEAR ROUND OUT FOR HEALT REASONS BUT MY POOL REACHES TEMPERATURES BELOW 50 DEGREES. CAN I USE THIS WET SUIT? I AM WORRIED THAT A 5MM WILL NOT BE WARM ENOUGH. WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST?
Hello, I am a swimmer (no competitor) but want to swm in a lake in NW Washington State that is 50 degrees or so in the winter. I am not thinking I will swim in the deepest part of the winter but would like to extend my swimming season. I am wondering if this is a good choice. Thanks for the help, Mary Pat
Any of the suits with super stretch in the title with be the most comfortable. 7mm is pretty thick and if you are swimming we would suggest looking at the Temperate Water 60°- 75° suit in a 5mm. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-42/Wet-Suits-Temperate-Water-60-75-degrees.html
I wont be "diving" but using the suit while metal detecting in up to waist deep Lake Superior in early and late winter. BEFORE the 2-3 foot thick ice forms. :-) There will be "limited" movement (swinging of the coil). Would the 7mm be too restrictive? Your thoughts would be appreciated.
Would this suit be too much for paddle boarding in 50 degree water? Hopefully I dont fall off but I am a beginner so it does happen. I am just wanting to keep the workout through some of the winter in North CArolina
Hello, I would like to buy a full wetsuit for my husband to wear while kayaking. We live in SC (Hot to Hotter) and ocasionally we visit my son in WA-We were there past week and the water was very-very cold-(Cant tell you how many degrees). Would this wetsuit work? He does not kayak everyweekend, therefore I would not like to spend too much $$. He laready owns a short wetsuit. Suggestions are welcome. Thanks,
Since he''s not in the water kayaking I would go with a shorty wetsuit. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-258/Warm-Water-Shorties.html
ADULT WETSUITS: 7mm Quantum Stretch Full Suit
Entire suit made from 7mm 4-way super-stretch neoprene for extreme comfort. Glued and blind stitched inside and out. Glide skin seal at neck, wrists & ankles. YKK #10 Brass zipper. Low profile water sealing zipper design.
YKK #10 brass zipper. Our unique zipper design utilizes dual rubber strips to additionally seal the zipper opening when closed, creating a water resistant closure. In addition, our low profile zipper flap folds over a closed zipper to further seal and secure the zipper in its closed position. The reinforced pull loop at the base of the zipper makes self-donning of the suit fast and easy.
The new AKONA glide-skin neck, wrist and ankle seals minimize water entry and flushing of the suit. The neck, wrists and ankles of these AKONA wetsuits are flush-cut for this purpose. The extremely slick surface and flexible properties of the glide-skin material enable the wearer to enter and exit the suit with ease.
Our uniquely designed and stylistic knee pads provide exceptional grip and durability. Unlike the stiff rubber knee pads utilized on other suits today, our revolutionary AKONA knee pad material is fully flexible, and has a hydrodynamic low profile.
Our AKONA Grab Shoulder material provides superior wear and scuff protection. Designed to grip a buoyancy compensator to reduce shifting, the Grab Shoulders create a snug and movement-free fit. The unique pattern of the Grab Shoulder material also prevents excessive stretching of the suit when hung to dry.
