Post Number:#1  Postby superkingkong » Fri May 18, 2007 9:56 am

hi guys..

just wanna ask... i put on an wetsuit...  but my chest area is a bit loose.. got a lil space.. that means.. easy for cold water to sip in from the neck area .. coz the neck area is not sealed .. it's the 2 piece design.. farmer john... is it normal? .. eg.. if u wanna peek through my chest  ;D u can... i mean not totally exposed lah... that means.. chest neck area is a "lil" loose... but hand, leg and other area is ok.. not tight.. but snug+loost a bit...

or should i get a smaller size? i would say..with the current one it's snug+a lil bit loose.

i guess if smaller size... it's will be tight

what do u think? should i live with it?

Prescibe to steroids and spend a little time in the gym...

;D ;D ;D ;D



Or u can always get a slightly smaller size (as long as it doesnt make u turn blue la).

No point if ur wetsuit is loose - it wont keep u warm UW.

SeaKingKong, having a wetsuit that fits well around the chest area is super important in my opinion, cos that's where you tend to lose a lot of body heat. Wearing one that's way too loose in that area is as good as not wearing one at all.

One solution to it is to get a fitted noprene vest to wear on the inside of the top part of your wetsuit, which will give you extra warmth.

Dats my 2sen...

kekekeke  ;D

no lah.. i just try it on again... since i'm wide and not tall :P .. so an XL will fit on the waist, leg and hand... but not the height :( so, just now i try to "pinch" my shoulder by about 2" .. ah.. then the chest punya space hilang :P

so... probably will try to exchange for a L ... and see whether i can tahan on the waist and thigh area or not  ::)
