Recreational Swimming

Do you catch a chill in the ocean or while playing around in the pool? If so, a basic wetsuit designed for recreational swimming will keep the chill off. For general purpose water play, consider an entry level wetsuit made of Standard Neoprene -or- 30% Stretch Neoprene. If you are swimming laps occassionally, a stretchier suit will be less restricting. Look for a 30-60-or 100% stretch suit depending on your budget. The stretchier the better!
