As someone who is in the water all year round an awful lot, I have in recent years begun to favour top-end suits as these can be easily justified. Not only that, 5 years ago a mid-range suit would leave little to write home about other than a potential good look and, if you were lucky, a lone patch of…

Prolimit Vapor Free-X Powerseam

Growing up I never had particularly technical wetsuits, and I never really felt the cold (oh the bliss of youth!), yet in recent years things have changed. We want to get out and make the most of the conditions regardless of the temperatures, and with technology advancing (at fairly reasonable prices) it has now become a no-brainer to kit yourself…

Prolimit Mercury Freezip Steamer 3/2mm FTM

Tried and Tested We’ve long been a fan of the Prolimit range of suits, think high-quality materials that are well put together, but more importantly can last a few seasons. The Mercury Freezip Steamer 3/2mm FTM is certainly a mouthful, but it’s their top of the line suit. Available in a range of thicknesses this is the thinnest one for…

Tried and Tested The Vapor is a semi-rigid harness from Prolimit, it uses an internal load plate, which is very stiff vertically but has quite a bit of flex horizontally. The harness can be used with either their Universal Rope Bar or the Fat Bar traditional hook set up. It’s always great to see choices like this with a harness…

The Fire suit from Prolimit is their mid range offering and the pricing is incredibly good for the technology and features it includes. We have tested out the 5/3 double lined version, but there is also a Fire Mesh option which has a single lined smooth skin finish to work even better against wind chill. Prolimit have proved to make…

Having worn the Pure Girl Oxygen suit from Prolimit for most of the last winter and being a fan of its warmth and flexibility, I was keen to try a suit from the Fire range and see how it compared. The Pure Girl Fire series is the mid-range in their women’s wetsuit collection. Well constructed and designed, with plenty of…
