Found 29th Aug 2012
Bit of a speciality item but may interest a few of you HUKDers. Nearly £60 off RRP. Same applies to woman's version. Seems to have very good reviews. Description below:

2-2.5mm Smoothskn neoprene front and back with flat lock stitching
Performance-grade SCS coated 1.5mm Yamamoto 39 cell neoprene used on the shoulder panels
2mm high stretch jersey side panels
Polyester lining, which helps protect the wetsuit from the effects of chlorine and warm water
Male
The main construction of the TRN is a 2-2.5mm Smoothskn neoprene front and back with flat lock stitching, which balances flexibility, buoyancy and thermal protection. The performance-grade SCS coated 1.5mm Yamamoto 39 cell neoprene used on the shoulder panels is highly flexible for excellent range of motion, while the 2mm high stretch jersey side panels offer flexibility and comfort through the full swim stroke and kick.
The TRN has a polyester lining, which helps protect the wetsuit from the effects of chlorine and warm water, making it ideal for use in pool training and races. People with higher end race wetsuits can also use the TRN as their second wetsuit for more regular training thanks to its durability.

its a summer wetsuit,
it'd be very cold in uk seas in this
Yes, but this is a wetsuit more built for triathlon than scuba diving^^

It has different materials and fit. Good deal I believe, I did my first triathlon this year, may get this as I enjoyed it. Wonder how long it will be at this price.
i like the look of this suit for diving, trouble is the legs look to be short. Is this the case with triathlon wetsuits? or am i just looking at it wrong?

That's a pretty awesome price for a triathlon wetsuit. I've spent £200 on my first wetsuit two years ago and wish I had this option back then! oO
Got mine. It seems like a very well considered and high quality piece of kit. With the £5 off code I got it for £65. Not bad at all given these things are £45 to rent for a week or two. It is a damn tight fit though. Takes about 15 minutes to get on, slowly sliding it up piece by piece. I did a bit of reading though and it should be like this to prevent air pockets forming and slowing you down in the water. I did my last triathlon in a surfing wetsuit, so should see quite the improvement with this.
