-Flexibility of the wetsuit

When buying a wetsuit for yourself, flexibility is very important. They should be able to stretch out when you go underwater so that you are covered and not feel cold or uncomfortable. If a wetsuit is very stiff, you will feel itchy, uncomfortable, and annoyed by its tightness of it.


The material of your wetsuit should be high quality and durable because it will be spending lots of time in the water and then dry out for days. This means that you need to look for a material that is water resistant, one that does not tear easily, has high durability, and also does not leak.


The overall level of insulation you get from your wetsuit depends on the thickness and type of material used for the construction. The thicker and better the thermocline, meaning the layering of material to make it warm, then the more warmth you will have.

Level of insulation

Most materials used today are nylon because they are very strong, durable, and flexible. This is very important especially in water sports like surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing where you spend more time in cold waters. This is very important as well because it will determine how well you swim.
