Water sports fans that live in colder climates will benefit from buying a wetsuit that lets them stay in the water longer. Here are some affordable options.


Rip Curl’s Dawn Patrol wetsuit is a consistent top seller at surf shops and it’s easy to see why. It starts around $200, comes with the latest neoprene for warmth and lightness, and has a fast-drying lining on the chest area for comfort. The thicker versions are good to go even in cold waters.


O’Neill is another classic surf brand and its Epic wetsuit is a good option for those on a budget. Lightweight, flexible neoprene and a double seal neck closure bring high-end features to an affordable suit, which starts around $170.


It’s also worth checking out the Syncro wetsuit from men’s brand Quiksilver and women’s brand Roxy. The twin companies have put a lot of effort into developing light neoprene and even lined the suit with thermal jersey for comfort. These models start around $160.


Billabong’s Furnace Absolute makes the cut here thanks to the huge variety of styles and thicknesses available at affordable prices. Choose from back zip or chest zip in 3/2mm or 5/4mm in men’s and women’s cuts to get the wetsuit that best fits your needs. Prices start at $140.
