Wetsuits are an important investment and its an expensive one too.
Here are some things to look for:-
- Comfort and fit
- Ease of getting off
- Extra features
Taking the above into account, here are some suggestions of some great first triathlon wetsuits:-
Zone3 Venture Wetsuit
Really good value for money, zip is a bit of pain and it’s not super flexible, but a great cheap first suit.
TYR Hurricane Wetsuit C1
Really good buoyancy, good flexibility, but it is quite thick and can be an issue to take on and off.
These are great first entry shorts.
The HUUB Essential Tri short has many uses. Whether you are racing around the Olympic Triathlon Course or at your local spin class, these shorts provide comfort and moisture wicking to the highest standard.

‘Pitched at the intermediate and above swimmer, as well as their coaches, the book is nothing if not comprehensive. SwimSmooth has always sought to make its training resources accessible and the book follows this easy approach. Language and tone is understated but its power is in its ability to communicate ideas with casual ease. It’s an excellent compendium of work and sits well with SwimSmooth’s website, DVDs and blogs.’ H20pen MAGAZINE OCTOBER 2012

Running with a water bottle, can put you off-balance and ultimately lead to injuries.
I picked up this waistpack which is excellent. It holds my bottle, and has two pouches.
Now these bad boys, are spot on. They have 22.6g of carbohydrate and 30mg of caffeine to give you a boost of energy and additional mental focus when you need it most.
They have recently redesigned the gels so they are easier to open.
Cheap, tasty, caffeine kick and easy to use.
