YOUR WETSUIT FINDER RESULTS
The rugged West Oz in winter... you'll want to be in some good rubber!Our top pick for a steamer you’ll love right through a West Oz winter is the Bahia 3/2mm Steamer.
The Bahia 3/2 has glued and blindstitched seams, MeshSkin chest/back panels and SuperGrill liner, with our seasonal Surf Series print. The Supergrill liner is an internal liner through the body of the suit, which helps trap heat inside to increase your warmth.
For the less frequent surfer, the Reactor II 3/2mm Steamer is a good value for money option featuring wind-resistant Smoothskin 3mm neoprene on the chest and back, and Ultraflex neoprene on the arms and legs, but doesn't have as much stretch/comfort/warmth of the higher-end wetsuits.
If you really feel the cold and need extra warmth, you can step up to the Bahia 4/3mm for extra thickness and warmth.
For crew who like to chuck on booties, we’d highly recommend the lightweight Ninja Booties.
It just depends on what’s most important to you - warmth / flexibility / price.
Check out the autumn/spring recommendations for further suggestions if you feel the cold less or you are leaning towards warmer conditions.
