Product Description

This wetsuit is the brilliant CIC shortie from TWF - suppliers of wetsuits in Cornwall for National and International markets for over 40 years. The suits feature titanium laminated soft and supple neoprene making the suit warm, easy to get in and out of and allowing maximum movement which makes them suitable for a huge variety of watersports including swimming, jetskiing, triathlon, boating, canoeing, kayaking, waterskiing and snorkelling - especially as they are total UV blockers where they cover your skin. Being a 'Shortie' this wetsuit is extremely versatile, comfortable and flexible . Great for all year round use particularly in the spring or late summer when sea temperatures are more chilly around the UK or further afield. Also the most indispensible piece of holiday kit you can pack - why hire when a couple of days hire fees will buy you your own suit!. The shortie comes in 3 colour styles - a stunning coal black body with a coloured insert of either marine blue or dark red and now also available in all black. ** With regard to sizing - we see many reviews with conflicting advice - What works for one person may not work for another, as everyone is a different . We have been selling this suit for 8 years and have fitted 1000's of happy customers. If in any doubt regarding your size please email us before you buy with your measurements - we would be delighted to help. Always take in to account your height as well as the chest. It stands to reason that if you are a 46" chest and 5'8" tall the XXL at max height 6'6'' will be far too long in the body and likewise if you are 6'3" tall with a 36" chest it is unlikely the suit will fit length wise if you just look at the chest measurement in isolation - we are here to help. Taking a commonsense approach and measuring accurately will help to ensure the best fit for you.

.....however the manufacturer who can make one with a built in six pack, man girdle and large cod piece will get my eternal thanks as I currently look like a castrated Teletubby before the diet.

Otherwise the suit is good, fits well and is snug in all the right places while allowing me enough movement to impersonate an Orca whale with frightening realism.

The shortie wetsuit arrived within 24hrs of ordering, this is the fastest delivery I've ever had!

The shortie wetsuit is of outstanding quality, a snug tight but very comfortable fit. I bought a different make before, but this one feels so much better, the body-shape is better tailored!

Would certainly recommend it, and I shall shop here again, absolutely brilliant!!

Anyone considering this wetsuit should not hesitate to purchase. We bought a couple of suits, a size large and a size medium - both fitted like gloves. The quality of the suits is far superior to many double the price and they arrived 24 hours after purchase! I have bought from Big Orange Watersports before and another excellent buy. The guys in the office are always helpful and if you need advice with sizes they are the experts and really know their stuff. Highly recommended.

Not used it yet, but don't see any reason it won't be fine.

Just one point to mention is the sizing chart on the Amazon item page - the items actual tag has a slightly different chart to the effect that the L = 42"-40"x5'10"-6' and the LM = 40"-38"x5'8"-5'10" etc. - so if you are tall but thin or short but wide - think carefully before ordering, tag mentions all sizes are subject to 2" stretch so length will stretch more than width!

I'm ~6' with~30" waist - the LM fits fine - just a little tight round the neck (good for keeping cold wet water from running down your back!) - I ordered 38"-40" max height 6' and LM is what I got.

Ideal product & very attractive price.

The shorter arms & legs on the wetsuit allow greater flexibility.

Got this as my first wetsuit to be used in Irish waters (south coast): the 3 mm thickness is ok for 15/16 degC water; it is well assembled and doesn't affect arms movements when swimming; the zip works well and is easy to close in one movement without getting stuck with the inside fabric; size charts are accurate and delivery is fast.
Overall a good wetsuit at an affordable price.
