    Did Not Fit

    I don't have experience with wetsuits and this one had a very reasonable price. The wetsuit itself was OK and the rubber on the thighs was really good.

    Unfortunately the size chart on the website did not match me and I had to return it. I'm currently waiting for a larger one.

    Très bon rapport qualité/prix, chaude mais rigide

    Le guide de taille me conseillait plutôt une taille 36. J'ai opté pour la 38 qui était adaptée. La 40 aurait pu être adaptée pour une pratique Swimrun (rangement ventral ravitaillement, confort accrue sur les parties course à pied avec une taille plus grande...).

    Positif : Produit que j'ai trouvé d'un très bon rapport qualité/prix. Acheté pour ne pas avoir froid et je n'ai pas eu froid lors d'un swimrun long (nage entrecoupée pour un total de 8 km pendant 3h dans une eau à 17-18°C). Pas d'irritation ressentie (légère au niveau du col mais faible).

    Point négatif : le tissu néoprène utilisé est rigide. Ce qui accentue la fatigue musculaire lors des longues natations. La coupe des manches au niveau des avants bras est large. Peu de poches et petites. Difficile à retirer et enfiler, des manches amovibles permettrait peut-être de faciliter cela.
