I had one until earlier this summer but unless you spend good money the middle to bottom end of the range is poor and youll probably get better value from a cheaper Orca or QR

A few years ago Bidde Fford made some great wetsuits but technology has moved on in neoprene etc and unfortunately Terrapin hasnt moved with it and the prices are high in comparision to other manufacturers .

Sad Thanks for that. Wasn't too sure.Looks like I might have to get an ex-hire suit.

Gobby - have a word with Emma at Tri-UK to see if they have any end of the line or ex-hire suits. Even better, pay them a visit in Yeovil and try the suit in their endless pool!
