Which suit?

Post by manicman » Fri Feb 10, 2012 10:18 am

Ive seen all the different makes and brands and such, and the range of prices that follow them, but i was wondering is there a big difference between them all?

are they not all the same thing in the end?

and preferences and reviews would be appreciated :D

Quality is what it really comes down to.
I've tried lots of different brands, and the cheaper ones generally don't fit quite as well, or aren't as comfortable.

That isn't to say that you shouldn't get a budget suit, I just believe something higher-quality is much more enjoyable and is worth every penny.

Iv'e seen those Ospray suits online and they seem pretty decent enough, probably just like the cheap shortie i got first time when i didn't have alot of money, but there alright if your getting into wetsuits! Once you've tried a shortie though, you will want to eventually get a full length suit :D

The suit i have is an Alder Impact which i got cheap off ebay and took a chance with the sizing and its fits nicely! There's pics of me in this one in the models section. I also have a Body Glove suit which was a bit more expensive but got it in a TX Maxx sale a few summers ago.
