Upgraded for 2013, 2XU's R series now features Yamamoto's latest neoprene technology. Together with propriety features from 2XU including Concave Water Entrapment Zones (CWEZ) on the forearm, Rollbar, Floating Zip Panels and Velocity Strakes, the R:3 is truly world class. Added performance specs include 1.5mm Underarm/Shoulder Paneling for maximum flexibility, a 4.5mm Front Buoyancy Panel and two year warranty. With a price point of a mid-level suit, the 2XU R:3 represents exceptional value.
Wetsuits Fit Information
Your suit should fit adequately in terms of both your height and weight. In the case that you fit into more than one size, you should opt for the smaller size. While 2XU Wetsuits come in both men’s and women’s styles, some females prefer the fit of a men’s suit. This is fine.
On the arms, your wetsuit sleeves should finish at least one finger gap in distance from your wrist bone. This will ensure the suit is sitting high enough and does not pull on the shoulders.
In the legs, the wetsuit legs should finish ¾ of the way down your shin. This will ensure the suit is sitting high into the crutch. If sitting too low, the suit will pull on the top of the shoulders.
Around the neck, the wetsuit should be firm but not to the point that breathing is restricted. If the neck bunches at all, the suit is too big. The neck is the number one area water can enter the suit, so it needs to be secure.
