Which wetsuit

Hi all
Trying to decide which wetsuit to buy for around the £200 mark.
I have been looking at the snugg lite which suppose to be forgiving around the centre
I am looking for a bouyant wetsuit which looks towards the larger fit ie 5'8" 12.5 stone
any advice would be welcome here
Kind regards

    Make sure you can try it on before you buy. I made the mistake of ignoring this advice last year, and bought an Orca size 8 (I was in the middle of the size rangefor all measurements) and it was a horrible, painful fit.

    I tried an Aquasphere Ironman Racer westuit (around the £200) mark and felt really nice, comfortable to swim in and easy to get off, may just have been imporved sizing though.

    If you want to bag yourself a bargin think about joing BCTTT, Conehead had some amazing deals for members last year, the money you spend on membership may well come back in discounts.

    Think TFN are still banging out the Blue Seventy 2009 Helix for £240. Massive saving off full price and a decent suit I'll wager.

    Might be running low on the more popular sizes though.

    If you're in the area and can wait until the TCR show next month, there are LOADS of wetsuits to try on there. That was what decided me on the one I got.

    I got the snugg ulta-lite,

    bought without trying on as its tailored to you!

    Its awesome, and eco-freindly supporting a UK company! even though the materials are from Japan!
    maybe not!
