Alternatively you can hire them for a year. These are good quality wetsuits and 
you will also get the option to buy. Considering the lifespan of a suit is maybe 
3 years if you are a regular swimmer. The prices are competitive for the quality 
of suit you are getting.



If you can wait  until next spring pop down to the TCR show 2-4th March at 
Sandown Park in Surrey. I got an Orca Wetsuit for £50. They have changing rooms 
and fitting help at the show a real bargain! http://www.tcrshow.com/

I personally wouldn't recommend an Osprey for colder water swims as they are 
very thin. But perfectly ok for summer swimming.

Got my Osprey suit from Outdoor Leisure Direct via Amazon, £30, very happy with 
it. They were able to advise about sizes by phone, and I opted for next day 
delivery. The suit was a perfect fit and I can recommend both it and them!
