5 mm wetsuits

Buying a 5mm men's wetsuit

Do you regularly go on the water to enjoy surfing? But are you still looking for a warm wetsuit or is your old wetsuit ready for replacement? Then you're on the right page! With a wide range of 5mm men's wetsuits there is always a suitable one among them.

At what temperature do you use a 5mm men's wetsuit?

A 5mm men's wetsuit is the most common wetsuit which you can wear almost the whole year through, ideal! From October onwards the temperatures can drop quite a bit so a 5mm wetsuit will come in handy. In the winter a 5mm wetsuit can also be used with some accessories like a neoprene jacket or gloves. After the winter period the water needs time to warm up, even then a men's wetsuit with a thickness of 5 mm comes in handy.

Important points to pay attention to when buying a 5mm men's surfing suit

There are a number of factors you can take into account if you are about to purchase a 5mm surfing suit. But which factors are those? We have listed them for you below:

Sizing of a 5mm men's wetsuit

Choosing the right size can sometimes be difficult, but it is very important. Your future wetsuit should fit well, but also not too tight. If the wetsuit is too tight, you will experience little freedom of movement and therefore perform less well.

Do you have questions about the right size? Check out our wetsuit size chart to find out what the right size is for you.

Thickness of a 5mm men's wetsuit

Within our 5mm wetsuits you will find different variants, namely; 5/4 and 5/3. When we talk about a 5/4mm wetsuit we are talking about a surf suit with 5mm thick neoprene around the torso and 4mm around the arms and legs. This way you will experience sufficient warmth around your core without sacrificing freedom of movement around the arms and legs.

Should you conclude that a 5mm men's wetsuit is not suitable, you can look at all our men's wetsuits.

Zipper of the 5mm men's wetsuit

You can choose between three types of zippers, namely frontzip, backzip and zipperless. Each zipper has its advantages and disadvantages.

The backzip wetsuits are still popular today. This has to do with the fact that the zipper is located at the back. This makes putting it on very easy. One disadvantage of the backzippers is the amount of water that manages to find its way in.

Then we have the frontzip wetsuits. These used to be a little less popular but you see them appearing more and more. By placing the zipper in the front, waterproofing and freedom of movement is enhanced. However, you will have to make a little more effort to get into the wetsuit.
Finally a not very well known zipper, namely the zipperless wetsuits. This type is fairly new but has a lot of advantages compared to the other two variants. Especially when it comes to freedom of movement and comfort, the zipperless 5mm wetsuits are a lot better.

Comfort of a 5mm men's wetsuit

The comfort of a 5mm men's wetsuit is an important factor to take into account during the orientation process. Because of the somewhat thicker neoprene, the surf suit can feel a bit stiff at first. But over time you will notice that this becomes less and less and the wetsuit will fit better and better to your body.

Seams of a 5mm men's wetsuit

Within the collection of 5mm men's wetsuits there are two sewing methods, namely stitched and glued seams. Surf suits with glued seams are generally more expensive, but also a lot warmer. This type is therefore recommended if you are planning to buy a 5mm men's wetsuit.
