Here's what our customers made of our Vanquish Wetsuit: "I was pleasantly surprised right from the off at how easy the Vanquish was to get on. I often find myself spending a long time hitching a wetsuit up, this wasn’t required, it literally slipped on like a glove." 👍 "The material seems noticeable softer than the prior vanquish, particularly around the arms and shoulders. Giving plenty of comfort and flexibility. I have previously had issues with achy shoulders after wearing a wetsuit, this was not the case with the Vanquish. It barely even feels like you have it on." 👍 "It felt soft and well fitted around the neck, another thing I often look out for in case of possible chafing." 👍 "Size-wise for me is also spot on, the size guide chart matches the actual fit for me perfectly." 👍 "An added bonus for me was the colour! Absolutely love it! So for me, all in all, it ticks all the boxes in what I look for in a wetsuit. Comfort, flexibility, ease of getting on/off and it looks sharp too!" 👍 So there you have it, great fit, great quality, great aesthetic – what more could you ask for in a wetsuit? How about 25% off in out January Outlet Sale? 😉 (Link In Bio)
