    Wetsuit Brand

    I am looking to buy my first wet suit any recommendations on brands no need to be the best brand just an entry level should be enough? ideally must be able to get it from Europe

    the lowest temperature in winter is approx 14 degrees Celsius. A 3/2mm should be enough right?

    3/2 should be okay but I would get a tour coat, Slippery brand, for added comfort. Fits right over your vest. When it is cooler then 60* (15.5) I wear a helmet which also helps a lot.
    O'Neill is a good durable and inexpensive suit. I have one I have been using for 5 years now and it is finally ready to be replaced. Cost 119.00.
    Good luck.

    The Slippery Tour Coat works great it lives in the front storage bucket as it's easy to put on if the temp drops even on summer rides. Spring and fall I use a 3mm farmer john suit then layer some under armour shirts with a life jacket, tour coat, neoprene beanie hat, 7mm boots and 3mm gloves.

    Don't know what you ride, but the SeaDoo suits are nice because they're designed for use on a PWC. They have built in pockets, so you don't have to remove the suit to get to your cash/ID, etc.

    I have an Akona spring suit and it has served me well for 2 seasons. Looks nearly new.
