What makes a good Hire Wetsuit?
- 1. THE FIT. It must fit tightly and snug. The most expensive wetsuit in the world will still feel cold if it doesn’t fit you properly!
- 2. THE STITCHING. There’re two main types of stitching these days, Flatlock Stitching and Blind-stitching. If you want to be the warmest you can be, you need Blind-Stitching! This is where the seams are first glued together creating a watertight bond, and then stitched from just one side. No holes right through the neoprene are made in the process. You are unlikely to ever find a ‘Blind-Sticthed’ wetsuit for under £100.00.
- 3. THE BRAND. Yes it’s true, brands matter… Some brands have access to higher quality neoprene than others. Some brands even pay more attention to details such as panel placement and seam placement to maximise stretch and eliminate rubbing. Established brands have years and years of knowledge behind them and can offer much better wetsuits at competitive prices. The brands we have chosen to stock by choice for over a decade are C-Skins and Alder.
