All the Way with Need

My goodness was iI impressed… first 2 surfs in Southern Ocean water mid May, was sensational !
Nearly 2 hours in and was still warm as toast.
I am particularly impressed with the attention to detail the Need wetsuit team have brought to their suits
Snug fit, super flexible for padding and stumbling to my feet (I am an older gentleman)
Love it highly recommend Need Essentials

Best wetsuit I've ever owned

I've been using this wetsuit every winter since 2021on the east coast, NY, NJ and Maine (water temp mid 30s*F/2*C)
This wetsuit keeps me super warm, still in good shape, not tearing apart yet, very flexible and also dries very quickly
Price point is great too $ !
Great Job !!!!

Great winter suit

Thermal lining and built in hood make this suit extra toasty. Flexible and true to size. A really solid suit for Vicco winter.

Hooded 3/4 steamer

Ordered this one at the start of winter 2018 and this winter started to get a bit chillier as likely started to leak a bit - after 5 Taranaki NZ winters , using it approx. 5 month per year - not too bad! Ordering the same one now for next winter, and keeping the old one as my summer free dive suit ... When new it was borderline too warm for North Island winter conditions, only good for the coldest, gale southerly offshore days !.
