Hello, I haven’t been around these parts in a while, it’s changed a bit… Any hoo, I’ve been swimming a couple of times at Jesus Green Lido this year, however 15℃ and no wetsuit makes for a short and thus rather expensive swim. Given the river Cam is but a stones throw from my office, I figured I can get some open water swimming in for free, but would rather a wetsuit so I can stay in for longer.
I’m looking for something cheap and cheerful to get me in the water. As much as I’d love to drop £500 on a fancy pants one, I can justify that kind of outlay. So I was wondering if anyone had any experience with, or thoughts on either the Alpkit Terrapin, Lomo Challenger or one of the Decathlon ones?
I’m open to other suggestions…
