Hirnig of wetsuits

JasonBJasonB Posts: 303
I am going to have a shot at a mini tri in Bedford. It caters for people who have never really tried an open water or as in this case a river swim.

My question is. I am thinking of hiring a wetsuit for this. Is that a good idea, or are there some horror stories of bad fitting suits, or not suits that you can't get off in transition. Should I spend god knows how many hundreds a fitted suit?

    JasonB - they always say its best to try before you buy but I hired mine without trying and its so far cool

    www.triuk.com - asked of height weight and chest then set out a suit with a note about fitting and informing me to swim in it before deciding its 2 small I guess they stretch or summat

    Thanks for that.

    So roughly how much does it cost, and how long can you keep it for? I must admit I would like to try and test one before even considering buying it.

  • Got mine from same place about £30ish pluss £100 deposit whch you get back if undamaged. Fitted well and all they took was height and weight. Arrived next day!
