Last week we were on our annual camping trip along the central coast in Morro Bay California and I had the opportunity to try out my new Leader accessories, Women’s Wetsuit 2.5 mm Black/Pink Fullsuit Jumpsuit Wetsuit. I’m spoiled because I live in sunny southern California and take for granted that the entire length of California is NOT warm and sunny. Last year I was freezing paddling along the bay checking out otters and harbor seals. This year was a game changer.
Not only do I like the colors of the suit, black with bright pink trim but I love the thickness of the suit. Yes I like the bright pink for its color but also for the safety aspect. I want to make sure I am visible if something happens and NOT mistaken for seal (we have a similar body shape – which is why I opted to skip photos of myself in the suit). The thickness is ideal for cold weather paddling, surfing and other water activities.
My favorite aspects of the suit are the wind-resistant smooth skin on the chest. It is COLD and windy along the central coast so that layer of added warmth and wind break gave me a sense of comfort and helped me enjoy the view. My second favorite aspect is the no-slip knee grip that makes sure I don’t slip off the board. And lastly the collar is adjustable and I like the flap that secures the zipper at the nape of my neck because it is well padded and won’t get caught in my hair (should I decided to grow it out). The suit fits perfectly and allows for full mobility, there were no gaps under the armpit or inseam. The sleeves reached my wrists and slightly longer which I like (especially in cold weather) but they were not loose. The leg length was perfect, ending just above the ankle.
Add some water shoes and this suit will keep you snuggly warm and comfortable. This Pink Women’s Wetsuit definitely worth your money!
