I ordered this suit to wear while snorkelling. It arrived in great shape and time and well packaged. I ordered a size Large as I had read previous reviews and they indicated that the size guide was good. Unfortunately, when I tried it on, it was too small, so, had to return it. I ordered an XL in another suit which fitted well.
this is an excellent value for money wetsuit
Fit as expected
Would have preferred a front zip. rear zip is quite difficult for me to use.
Item is comfortable
I ordered a size 8 for my 7 year old grandchild. When it came it looked like it wouldn't fit a 4 year old! I took it to the shop and they let me change it, no questions asked for a size 12 which fitted perfectly!!
No questions asked when I wanted to change it
No warning that I might need a bigger size
Great for use while surfing in Cornwall over the summer.
No issues with getting cold.
Perhaps a bit of chafing, maybe sand?
Agree with all other reviewers: excellent value, great for lake swimming in summer. However, back fastening infinitely easier for removal than front. I've cut off the sleeves!
Very hard to remove
I bought one of these in Mallorca and liked it so much that I bought another to keep at home in UK.
excellent fit and good value for money
For someone who swims in the seas around the UK once a year for two weeks in summer, this wetsuit suits me well. It is very well priced for an adults wet suit. It is not very thick, but contains enough warmth to use in the sea at summer time. Very supple and easy to move in.
Kept me warm in the Bristol Channel
It's just impossible to find wetsuits that give the value of the decathlon offerings. For occasional use, these are excellent. They give massively improved comfort for UK seas and rivers, making you warm when you'd be freezing in a swimsuit. For fun days at the seaside, these are a must for our family. We own 3, one adult and two kids and we never go away without them. Used in Cornwall and the North East this summer already.
Great cost, good fit, greatly improves warmth
Can't find fault with it
