I love this wetsuit! I’ve never had a decent (fitting) wetsuit before (I’m 5ft 2, size 8, so they are often too big) , so have been used to that rush of cold water coming into a wetsuit when you wade into the water. It didn’t happen with this suit! I was amazed at how it performed in the cold Irish Sea! I stayed warm a long time after those younger and less susceptible to the cold than I, called it a day! Hurrah! I’ve only been in the sea- yet to try it open water swimming in my local lake but I have high hopes. Thanks Finisterre!
