Speedo Proton Thinswim Sleeveless Wetsuit

RRP $230 ($195.50 with 15% discount)

The Speedo Women’s Proton Sleeveless Wetsuit is the perfect wetsuit if you are feeling the cold but don’t like those arms or shoulders being constricted by sleeves.

The Speedo ‘Thinswim’ wetsuits are slightly thinner which gives you greater flexibility and range of motion but won’t keep you as warm in colder climates.

This wetsuit is made of Y39 rubber like the Proton Fullsuit giving users maximum buoyancy in the water.

The Maximotion+ panels are used in key areas of the wetsuit to create supreme flexibility when swimming, making it feel like a second skin rather than a wetsuit.

RRP $275 ($233.75 with 15% discount)

The Speedo Fastskin Proton Fullsuit comes in at $275 and has features that every open-water swimmer will love.

Made of Yamamoto 39 Cell Neoprene Rubber (the most buoyant foam in existence), this wetsuit will give you advanced buoyancy while also minimising drag.

The Body Positioning Regulator (BPR) panels are strategically placed to ensure you have a maximum streamlined swim position and the Flexible Y38 neoprene allows for a good range of movement through the arms without feeling restricted.

This wetsuit also has a ‘fuse neck’ which offers water tightness around the neck, preventing water from entering.

At 2mm thick this will keep you warm in most ocean swimming locations around Australia.

Another great feature of this wetsuit is the slat-cut legs which make it easier to take the suit on and off.

This wetsuit is great for entry-level open-water swimmers.
