A wetsuit is a neoprene suit, which is designed to keep you warm.... Keeping you warm will result in avoiding cramps but will also absorb impact from hitting the water. Wetsuits use 2 different kinds of zippers: a front and a back zipper, back zippers are the most common and are easier to get into. Front zippers offer more flexibility and keep more water out but are harder to get into. Next to different neoprene accessories, Jobe offers different kind of wetsuits such as fullsuits, shorties and longsleeves. All these wetsuits can be used for different kind of conditions and temperatures.

Choosing your wetsuits is dependent on the water temperature and the type of water sports you want to perform. Wakeboarding or slalom skiing demands a higher level of stretch than laying on a tube. Therefore you want to look for the level of stretch in a wetsuit. Besides that, a chest zip gives more flexibility to the wetsuit, while a back zip means the wetsuit is easier to put on. Knowing the temperature of the water is very important. Colder temperatures require more high end wetsuits like our steamers that use a lot of techniques to keep you warm. Enjoying a tubing day in the summer? Then look for a shorty wetsuit instead.
 
Neoprene thickness is measured in mm and gives you an idea of how good a wetsuit insulates your body temperature. The thicker wetsuits like a 5/3 wetsuit gives better insulation and are for ice cold conditions. Wetsuits with these thickness use extra’s like taped seams and a special liner which adds to the insulation of the heat. These are followed by the 3/2 wetsuits which made for spring conditions and are both available for fullsuits and shorties. Given the temperature, you can choose to put on the fullsuit or shorty wetsuit. The thinnest neoprene is for the 2/2 wetsuits and is perfect for the summer!

The wetsuit you are using depends on the conditions in which you’re on the water. For freezing cold conditions a thicker fullsuit is the way to go, these are usually used at the beginning and end of a season. Thinner wetsuits are commonly used when the water is starting to warm up in the beginning of spring. In some cases, people even use a longsleeve wetsuit, which only has short legs. There are also shorties, made for those summer days which we all long for. And why wear a wetsuit in the summer? That’s easy! It does more then just insulate body temperature it absorbs impacts on the body as well.
