Hi chaps, just had my first freezing cold open water swim experience - which was fine, problem is after I got changed I realised my neck was sore - the wetsuit has chaffed my neck (had hair cut day before too!) - without cutting it down, is there any ointment I can add to my neck or suit without damaging it?

    bodyglide is usually offered up as a good lubricant, and one that doesn't/should rot the wetsuit. i've also read plenty of people who recommend KY jelly. 

    there are also a few people i know who don't believe the vaseline rots wetsuit line, and happily use it (and make sure it is well washed off afterwards). 

    i tend to use body glide, but mainly because i was given some one christmas and don't swim often enough to use it up that quickly!
