6 mm wetsuits
Buying guide of a winter wetsuit
A wetsuit must be sleek, but also comfortable. The wetsuit 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.
A steamer wetsuit has the ability to protect you against 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 look for when purchasing a 6mm ladies wetsuit
Size: When buying a 6mm ladies' wetsuit, the size is very important. With a wetsuit that is too long or too short, you have the chance that the performance during your water sport will be less than if you have the right size of wetsuit on.
Comfort: A comfortable wetsuit is perhaps one of the most important things you should look into when purchasing a 6mm women's 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 recommend that you visit the Telstar Surf shop where you have a wide choice of all types and sizes of wetsuits.
Thickness: The thickness of a 6mm wetsuit is super important. The 6mm wetsuits are also called steamer wetsuits. These wetsuits are very warm and can be used on colder autumn or spring days, also in winter we recommend using this thickness. With the 6mm wetsuits you will in any case experience little cold on the water!
Zip type: There are different wetsuits with different types of zippers. At Telstar Surf, the Back-Zip, Front-Zip and Zipless wetsuits are ready to be put into use.
A Back-Zip ladies wetsuit has the zipper 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 wetsuits have the zipper at the front, an advantage of these women's wetsuits is that the connection is very narrow which results in less water coming through the wetsuit.
The Zipless wetsuits do not have a zipper. 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 much water, but also because the zipless wetsuits are a lot lighter in weight than the wetsuits with a zip.
Connection: There are two different types of connections in the wetsuits. One of those two connections is called the stitched connection. This type of connection ensures that your neoprene stays tight together by seams. A disadvantage of this connection is that it makes it easier for wind and water to pass through.
The other type of connection type is the glued type. We strongly recommend this connection if you are going to on the water with colder weather or if you want a very solid wetsuit. A disadvantage of the glued 6mm girls wetsuits is that they are a lot more expensive than the stitched versions.
