non-kicker looking for wetsuit

Post by sh.. » Thu, 20 Jul 1995 04:00:00

I am still in the hunt for a wet suit...

I just have one more question before buying one..

I have a weak kick (sometimes no kick at all) when swimming freestyle, so my legs tend to sink.
Should I get a wetsuit with full legs? or half legs?  and which are more comfortable? Also, what is
the advantage/disadvantage with armless suits?

(okay, so it was more than one question..)

Most definitly get full legs!.................The QR longjohn is has great arm mobility, I use it for warmer or shorter
swims.  I use an Ironman Triathlon full suit for longer cooler swims.  I
like them both, however the fullsuit can fatigue you a bit in the shoulder
Hope that helps......
