 WETSUIT FITTING GUIDE 

All size chart can be found on each individual product throughout the website, here is a basic fitting guide, Wetsuit, and Drysuit sizing. 


 


 

THE GUL FIT:
Gul continues to develop the fit and sizing. One of the most important factors when buying technical apparel is the fit. If the garment doesn’t fit correctly if it isn’t comfortable it won’t perform to its’ designed capability. When it comes to wetsuits if the suit fits too loose, there will be cold water entering and you’ll never stay warm. A suit which is too small or large can also cause a rash. Guls’ 45+ years of wetsuit design and engineering helps ensure an excellent fit. 

HOW A WETSUIT WORKS:

A wetsuit creates a barrier against nature's extreme elements by utilising the insulating properties of closed cell neoprene. Neoprene is a closed cell foam made up of thousands of tiny air bubbles known as cells. The air within these tiny cells creates a barrier which slows down the conduction of heat and allows your body heat to be retained. 

NEOPRENE: 

Guls’ focus is to use the worlds’ best neoprene and fabric innovations available. All materials used in the range are manufactured to Guls’ specifications in order to have the right combination of warmth, strength, flexibility and durability. Gul has its own QC inspectors at the factory source who remove and reject any neoprene which comes below Guls’
superior standards 

NEOPRENE THICKNESS:

The thickness of the neoprene utilised in a wetsuit determines the warmth and flexibility. A thick wetsuit provides maximum insulation but can inhibit the flexibility. A thin wetsuit will be very flexible but can affect the thermal insulation properties. The key is to get the right combination of warmth and flexibility so that you stay warm, but also provides maximum flexibility.
