What's your the definition of "Best" for your sailing?I know it is still summer, but I want to be ready this year when it gets a little colder
So, what are the some of the best wetsuits to wear for Sunfish sailing? Preferably under $200, and it's not for anything extreme.
try a BOZ wetsuitHahaha...Great picture!
Warmth - air temps. as low as 15 and water temps as low as 40.
It doesn't have to be the most flexible suit in the world, but I want it to hold up, so fairly durable. I know that's vague but I don't know anything about wetsuits...
I would prefer full, but farmer john would be fine.
Thanks for helping out with this!
Your criteria is getting into the area of hard core frostbite sailing temps.Warmth - air temps. as low as 15 and water temps as low as 40.
I bought a shorty wetsuit (short arms, short legs) at Costco - on sale, with shipping for only $40. I think Costco sells a full wetsuit, too, for about $ 75. They might not be quite as good as the Gill ones, but can be had for a significantly lower price. I love the shorty one I bought. In fact, I just bought one for my wife as well.
I don't know official protocol - this spring I picked up a pair of black biker-style tight shorts to wear underneath. for a woman, I would think a swimsuit would work. I just didn't like changing into the wetsuit in a parking lot wearing just tighty-whities, and wasn't too keen on buying a Speedo-style swimsuit.I don't own one and have never had one. I don't even know if you're supposed to wear your birthday suit, swimsuit, or jammies beneath them.
I too didn't want to go all-natural under the wetsuit, and I wore the regular undies at first, but didn't like changing in and out of the wetsuit in a parking lot with just those on. the black biker shorts work well for me.Probably not protocol but I've been wearing regular underwear under my shorty, probably nothing is best but I have visions of a blow out and don't want to deal with that.
