Stay warm and protect your skin with a wetsuit

Are you looking for a wetsuit to help you stay warm when heading into cold water to do paddle board or sports?

A wetsuit ensures that you don't get cold when you're in the water. It also provides extra buoyancy if you fall into the water.
Wetsuits are used in many different sports and they also come in a vast array of designs. At CoolSnow, we offer some of the best, most durable and solid wetsuits you can get your hands on - see below.

How does a wetsuit work?

Many confuse wetsuits and drysuits - but the difference is fairly significant (as the different names suggest). A wetsuit does not keep you dry inside, which is what a drysuit does.

Wetsuits become soaked through as soon as you enter the water. The wetsuit takes in water, which rests on the inside of the wetsuit in small air pockets. Here, the water acts as a layer of insulation that is heated by your body. This, in turn, keeps you warm.

Comfortable and durable wetsuits to last for years

At CoolSnow, you’ll find a simple but rock-solid selection of wetsuits. Our skilled team makes sure to procure excellent quality, state-of-the-art wetsuits at competitive prices.

We prioritise wetsuits that are durable, well-fitting and with the perfect thickness. These are the most important things to keep in mind when getting your hands on a great wetsuit.

A wetsuit doesn’t only keep you warm. It also:

  • Protects you from sharp, pointed objects
  • Helps you stay afloat
  • Keeps cold water out
  • Allows you to swim faster due to the increased buoyancy

Wetsuit size guide:

It can be confusing and difficult to figure out which wetsuit is right for you, especially if you're just starting out.

Many factors come into play when choosing the right wetsuit, and we have put some together below. We'll go into what you should keep in mind when buying a wetsuit - and, naturally, also why we think our wetsuits tick all the boxes!

Many people worry about ordering wetsuits online as they can't be tried on before buying them - with that, there's the possibility of picking the wrong size.

Our wetsuits have a comprehensive size guide to help you make your choice. As a general rule, we recommend ordering wetsuits in the same size as you buy outerwear in.

What does a good wetsuit cost? The interplay between price and quality

In the large wetsuit market, you'll find wetsuits at a range of different prices. As is the case with many things, the price of a wetsuit goes hand-in-hand with quality.

As a general rule of thumb, consider buying a wetsuit starting in the hundreds of

pounds. However, your choice should be made based purely on your own needs and the level of quality you require.

What thickness do you need?

It largely depends on when and why you need to use your wetsuit, and how cold the water will be. Wetsuits are available in very thin designs that are about one millimeter thick, but they also come in thick versions up to seven millimeters.

Temperature and millimetres: The approximate ratios:

  • 0-3 degrees: 6-7 millimetres thick
  • 4-7 degrees: 4-6 millimetres thick
  • 8-11 degrees: 3-4 millimetres thick
  • 12-17 degrees: 2-3 millimetres thick

The colder the water, the thicker the wetsuit should be, and vice versa. Wetsuits that are too thick can be uncomfortable when it's hot.

How to wash a wetsuit

It is important to take good care of your wetsuit to ensure it lasts for as long as possible. If you don't wash it properly, for example, it may start smelling bad and get worn out.

After each use, consider doing the following:

  1. Wash the wetsuit both inside and out with fresh, cold water - not salt water 2. Hang the washed wetsuit in the shade and let it dry - avoid direct sunlight
  2. Use a hanger to hang the wetsuit up, avoiding doing so by the neck in case it stretches
  3. After a while, turn the wetsuit inside out so that it can also dry on the inside

From time to time, it's also a good idea to wash the wetsuit with a wetsuit shampoo to cleanse it of the last remnants of dirt.

How to put on your wetsuit

It can be quite difficult to put on a wetsuit. The wetsuit should be dry when you put it on, else it may be even harder.

  1. Unzip the zipper completely and turn it towards you so that it'd be on your back when you have the wetsuit on.
  2. Start with one leg and gently pull with your fingers (without letting your nails contact the material).
  3. Pull the leg up to slightly above the ankles, and do the same with the other leg.
  4. Then, with both hands, pull the wetsuit up to the waist, but don't pull too hard
  5. Put one sleeve on at a time by gently pulling them on until your wrist comes out of the sleeve.
  6. When both arms are in, wiggle your shoulders a little so that the wetsuit falls properly into place.
  7. Zip up the back - get a friend to help if necessary.

You can make it easier for yourself by buying a purpose-made water-based lubricant to make it faster and easier to slip into the wetsuit.
