5 mm wetsuits

Buying guide of a 5mm ladies wetsuit

A wetsuit must be sleek and comfortable, but also comfort and movement. The suit must also be easy to put on and take off, so we recommend you to come to our shop to try different sizes of different wetsuits. In addition to trying it out, you can also look at the online size chart that is included with each wetsuit.

Buy Steam Wetsuit

A steamer wetsuit has the ability to protect you of the cold waters from mid-March to the end of November. Do you also want to go out in the winter? Put on a few neoprene layers under your wetsuit and you are winter proof.

What to pay attention to when purchasing a 5 millimeter ladies wetsuit

Size: When purchasing a 5mm ladies' wetsuit, the size is the most important part to look for. If the wetsuit is too long or too short, you have the chance that the performance during your watersport will be less than if you have the right size of wetsuit on.

Comfort: A comfortable ladies wetsuit is also an important factor when selecting a wetsuit. If the comfort is not good you don't go out on the water with a good feeling. As a result, your performance will also be reduced so that you will ultimately get less pleasure in the water sports that you practice. To find the right wetsuit we advise you to visit the Telstar Surf shop where you have a wide choice of all kinds of wetsuits. If you are unable to do this, you can always order a ladies' wetsuit online. We have placed sizecharts at every wetsuit of 2019+ to make it easier for you.

Thickness: The thickness of a 5mm women's wetsuit is super important. The 5mm girls' wetsuits are also called steamer wetsuits. These wetsuits are very warm and can be used on colder autumn and spring days. You can also use these wetsuits in the winter. Do this with an extra layer of neoprene underneath your wetsuit.

Zipper type: There are different wetsuits with different types of zips. At Telstar Surf you can buy the Back-Zip, Front-Zip and the Zipless wetsuits.
A Back-Zip wetsuit has the zip at the back of the wetsuit, this is also the most common type of zipper because you can easily get in and out of your wetsuit.
The Front-Zip women's wetsuits have the zipper at the front, an advantage of these wetsuits is that the connection of neoprene is very narrow, resulting in less water coming through the wetsuit.
The Zipless wetsuits have no closed closure. At first glance you will probably think that a lot of water can come in, but that is not the case! The No-Zip wetsuits are becoming increasingly popular because they not only hold back a lot of water, but also because the zipless wetsuits are a lot lighter compared to the wetsuits that do have a zipper.

Connection: There are two different types of connections that can be used in the wetsuits. One of those two connections is called the stitched connection. This type of connection ensures that your neoprene stays together properly through its seams. A disadvantage of this connection is that it makes it easier for wind and water to enter your wetsuit.
The other type of connection is the glued type. We recommend this connection if you are going to go out on the water with colder weather or if you want a very solid ladies wetsuit. A disadvantage of the glued 5mm women's wetsuits is that they are a lot more expensive than the stitched versions.
