So after practising taking the wetsuit on and off several times, I feel better about not causing harm to the suit, myself or others (from flailing around). On my first attempt, I started panicking when I felt I couldn't breathe. Turns out you need to really pull the material (gently, I used thin gloves) bit by bit upwards so it's not too tight around the neck. And invest in some wetsuit lube. And stay calm to avoid getting too hot and sweaty. Does anyone have tips on how to transport the wetsuit if cycling or on foot? Can we roll it to put in a bag? And are wetsuit hangers recommended for home storage? At the moment, mine just lays on a clothes airer. Next step, hit the water ...
