Questions and Answers for Neosport by Henderson 5/3mm Triathlon NRG Wetsuit:
I need ultimate UV protection and as much warmth in a super stretchy full coverage suit as I can get. I have autoimmune disease, am very UV sensitive and do not maintain body heat well. My intent is for swimming/exercise in cold pools or lakes, and this looks interesting, but I prefer coverage lower on the calf if I can get it. Is this the suit for me, or would you suggest another?
Need a suit that will work in chlorinated swimming pools and enable me to stand in water for about 1 hour in temperature of up to 80 degree and ideally 60 degrees. will this wetsuit be a good fit?

Any wetsuit made of neoprene material be effected by chlorine. Rinsing the suit before and after getting in the pool water will help maintain the suit. All of the swimming type suits are more flexible and are designed to swim in. The thicker the suit the warmer the suit.
