Hi there I'm new to this forum as well as Triathlon and have what might be a stupid question but if you don't ask...

As well as trying to get into Triathlons I am a keen diver. I am going away diving next month and need to buy a new full wetsuit probably 2/3mm for the climates I'm hitting. Are there any on the market that I would be able to use for both or are Triathlon wetsuits specifically designed for swimming alone ?

Any replies appreciated..

    Most Tri wetsuits..well all of them really ..are designed to allow freedom of shoulder movement for swimming & panels to improve bouyancy..which may not be compatible with diving. Not to say it won't work but I would say a tri suit would be a better bet to dive in than doing a triathlon swim in a diving wetsuit.

    A good friend of mine is a diver and investigated this about 4 years ago - to cut a long story short the answer is NO
  • Thanks guys thought I might be able to kill 2 birds with one stone but it appears not. I'll look to get two seperate ones..
