The first thing that you will notice with this suit is that it’s a nice cut and shape not to tight and ample space to wear an undergarment.

The wear areas around the bum and knees have an extra layer of protective material.
This is a front entry suit so the main zip is the front of the suit

It has neoprene seals on the neck and the wrists these dont usualy require stretching but are sometimes trimming to get that perfect fit for the individual

The built in socks are heavy duty latex as well which will keep all the water out.
It is Important to remember to wear some sort of protective footwear over these socks to protect against any sharp objects such as small stones from puncturing the latex .

After the first paddle for a couple of hours I asked buddy his opinions on a few aspects of the suit his answers are below.

How does the suit feel ?.It feels very comfortable

Did you have to adjust anything on the suit before using ?.no the seals are all neoprene so did not require any alterations.

How did you find the neck and wrist seals ?.I had no problem at all with them they were very comfortable all day .

Was you dry when you removed your suit ?.Yes no water came in at all but I did have 2 small damp patches just on the knees from condensation.

Would you change anything with the design of the suit? .no it fitted great and was dry .

This has shown to be a very good suit the retail cost is £379.aprox.
Thank you to buddy for agreeing to our review on this suit .
