Triathlon-specific wetsuits are designed to be a snug fit. A wetsuit will expand approximately half of one size, once you get into the water with it on. Here are a few tips to help select the correct size:
- If they have longer legs and a shorter torso, subtract 2 cm from their height.
- If they have shorter legs and a longer torso, add 2 cm to their height.
- If they have a larger chest and/or shoulders, add 2kg to your child’s weight.
If the wetsuit is very comfortable on the land, then the chances are it’s too big for you and will scoop up water when you start to swim. Practising in a wetsuit in the weeks prior to a race is very important and will allay any fears you may have.
You are welcome to make an appointment to try our wetsuits for size in our Showroom. We also regularly attend Triathlon/Duathlon events with our Demo wetsuits and a changing room. CLICK HERE to view upcoming events in 2017.
The last day you can place an order is the Friday a week before your required date. We cannot guarantee availability if you order later than this. We will contact you immediately if we do not have your wetsuit.
We ship at least 2 days before your specified hire start date. If you’re hiring a wetsuit at the last minute, we will do everything we can to get the wetsuits to you in time but cannot be responsible for any delays.
Delivery of a wetsuit within the UK is £8. Take care of this box/packaging, as the wetsuit must be returned in the same box.
Returning Your Wetsuit
Wetsuits can only be returned by post. You can choose any method/carrier you wish and are responsible for return shipping cost. All wetsuits must be returned before or within 2 days of your hire end date (wetsuits must be clean, dry, with a copy of your order receipt enclosed).
Hire end dates are either 14 days or 28 days after your nominated start date (in the Checkout) for the 14 day or 1 month hire respectively. Full Season hire end date is 31st of October 2017.
If you believe you have specified the wrong size, please CONTACT US. There is a nominal charge of £8 to change the size to cover our packing, courier costs and inspection/restocking on return. Wetsuit Hire is only available to UK customers.
Wetsuit Damaged or Dirty
Any damage, however minor will reduce the value of the wetsuit. In-line with Industry standard practice, we reserve the right to charge you for cleaning (£10) or repair (£10 per nick/cut). Wetsuits returned clean and undamaged will not be charged further! We will always contact you before making any charge.
If you notice any tears or rips CONTACT US and we can discuss what the charges might be. Sometimes a balance price to purchase the wetsuit, may work out cheaper than repairing.
All our hire wetsuits are new for 2017. You will always receive a new or nearly new, fully functioning Zone3 wetsuit.
Option To Buy and Part-Exchange
If you wish, you have the option to buy your wetsuit (*subject to availability) and we will simply deduct your hire fee. The balance to pay will be our current new price, minus your hire fee.
If you have bought a Zone3 Adventure Wetsuit from us, you can part-exchange your wetsuit against the price of the next size up wetsuit in the same range. CONTACT US for details.
