Wetsuit sizing is one of the hardest but most crucial parts of selecting the best wetsuit. Getting the right-sized wetsuit can be a trial and error process. For this reason, we advise trying on a range of different wetsuits in different sizes and different makes and models as the exact shape and size of a wetsuit can vary even between wetsuits from the same brand. Quite often the manufactures size guides don’t reflect the best size for you. We have a range of wetsuits available to try in our store in Aberdeen. If you are unsure what size please contact us and we can help advise on the correct size.
The 'Float' range from Orca offers high levels of buoyancy for those who struggle with body position or find swimming does not come naturally. Check out the Athlex Float which is the entry-level equivalent, also offering improved buoyancy.
40+: Orca's high-end wetsuit range incorporates Yamamoto 40 technology and Infinity Skin 2 lining to provide maximum freedom of movement to open water swimmers. The lining also incorporates bamboo fibers to provide more flexibility and to reduce odor, preventing the growth of bacteria. The Nano Ice SCS coating increases hydrodynamics, reducing water resistance and increasing speed with each stroke. The combination of all three technologies gives the athlete total freedom of movement in the shoulder area. The material requires 72% less force to stretch.
40 FS: For maximum freedom of movement, elasticity and flexibility, Orca's high-end range combines Yamamoto 40 technology with Infinity Skin 2 lining and Smoothskin surface finish. This composition provides the open water swimmer with complete range of motion in the shoulder area. The material requires 72% less force to stretch than any other conventional neoprene. Bamboo fibers in the inner lining provide flexibility with each stroke, in addition to reducing odor and preventing the growth of bacteria.
40 PF: The Power-fit compressive lining, along with Orca's high-end Yamamoto 40 technology, provides a perfect fit in the torso area, ensuring that water will not flow through the wetsuit. Nano Ice SCS coating improves hydrodynamics, reducing water resistance and allowing the open water swimmer to reach top speed with each stroke.
Exo-Lift is a sandwich-type construction which combines a neoprene layer, Aerodome technology and a third interior layer of neoprene which is treated specifically to make the Predator even more durable, achieving maximum buoyancy and 0% water absorption. A little boost to help you maintain a hydrodynamic position at all times, even when you're tired.
