DHB Wetsuit Test under the Turning Torso

0

First test of the new dbh wetsuit completed here by the beach near the Turning Torso in Malmö.

The wetsuit is fine, especially compared to its price point. I had no problems with chafing, which is the main issue that I have experienced with other (and back then more expensive) brands.

The suit I got is a bit too snug for me (or vice versa, ahem), but felt OK when I had managed to put it on. I wouldn’t say that my undressing speed is of competitive triathlon standard, but maybe it will get better over time.

One funny thing is that it was a bit too lose in the back, under the zipper. No biggie here, but this might get interesting when I try it in the cold waters of the Faroe Islands.

But still, thumbs up from here. The insulation is absolutely OK for main Scandinavian waters, and I like that it is thin. Floating is perfectly fine too, but maybe again that is just me :”-)

My camera crew got an ice cream for their efforts.
