Ladies Long John Wetsuits
Long John wetsuits are the type with full length legs but without arms for freedom of movement. For female paddlers a fit designed specifically for women will fit better and therfore keep you warmer.

Most of the suits are made from 3mm neoprene which traps a layer of water between it and the skin and uses your body heat to warm this thin layer up.

There are various types and quality of constrcution which affect the performance and comfort as well as the price. Overlocked suits are the most basic and cheaper form of constrcution. The seams are joined by folding up the 2 edges of neoprene and stitching around the 2 edges. This method produces a small ridge along the seams. Flatlock construction is created by stitching 2 pieces of neoprne together without creating a ridge. Ths method makes a very comfortable fit.

If the wetsuit you order does not ft and has not been used please return it and we will supply a replacement of another size.
