I'm reading that as 2mm thickness all over ? Might be a little cold for UK swims ? You can have a maximum thickness of 5mm I think so this one might be cooler and not as buoyant as others ?

What tri are you doing ?

i need 5mm in the important places as I am a crap swimmer and need the buoyancy.......

 might be good for a decent swimmer with good positioning

That's me out too then. I could do with those polystyrene floats you tie to the backs of toddlers.

"Second skin for water temperatures between 18°C and 22°C."

that's most of the UK water out of the window then until much later in the season!!

it's a warm water suit - forget it and go for a standard tri wettie with 4/5mm neoprene for colder UK climes
