Real Review: JetPilot Apex Race John & Jacket
Admittedly, it’s difficult to write a product review on something that so few will often wear. Not so much because it’s an alien subject to many readers, but for fear of making this an argument in wetsuit’s defense. For the most part wetsuits are foreign subjects to casual personal watercraft riders – and even somewhat among those who would call themselves more active PWC enthusiasts. Despite them being antithetical to the whole notion of casual riding, wetsuits are possibly the single best piece of safety equipment you could wear besides a personal flotation device (PFD).
Apart from providing significant gains in maintaining healthy body temperatures by using your own body warmth to heat a thin membrane of water between your skin and the neoprene encasing your body, they also provide protection from external elements and insulation from potential damage. Most all sanctioned race organizers require participants wear a wetsuit or “john” (with full leggings).

Nice looking suit. Made it out to the lake this past Saturday and was kinda caught off guard when I stepped into the water from the boat ramp to launch my ski...colder than I expected but still not quite suit temp but a reminder that my "john" will be coming out of the closet very soon.
