The unstad 6/5 Hooded wet suit is made for arctic surfing in the coldest and most rugged conditions. The wetsuit offers the perfect combination of functional details, warming fit, optimal moving range and high-end sustainable neoprene materials. The piece consists of several materials to ensure the right thickness on different places and to provide stretch and maximum movement where it’s most needed. Developed from the properties offered by a powder skirt, the suit has small shields on the shoulders to prevent the cold water from flooding inside the suit too quickly. Liquid seams on the outside and taped on the inside, increase the water resistance thus making it warmer. The hood gives great coverage and is made of a lighter, stretchy neoprene that is easy to pull over the head when needed, and not too stiff when it is off. The chest entry uses a YKK AquaSeal, waterproof and air tight zipper from Japan. Tatex printing on wrists and ankles to reduce water leakage in, with gaps to allow water to flow out.
Our wet suits are made from a less environmental impactful naturaprene, natural rubber foam, harvested from rubber trees in Asia where the neoprene is also produced. The naturaprene is laminated to recycled Polyester on the face and back with water based glue that is solvent free, except for the reinforcement areas that require virgin materials to provide enhanced durability.
Rated 5 out of
Very comfortable and warm!One of the warmest suits I've used - tested in arctic conditions, keeps me warm for hours! Nice fitting hood with tight face seal, especially like the chin design - comfortable when the hood is on and off. Nice extra seal on the shoulder (do net get water in through the shoulder). Good overall fit!
I am about 180 cm heigh and what size wetsuit, sould i have? I have never had a wetsuit before, therefore the question.

Thank you for your question regarding this wetsuit. The fit for wetsuits are standard, meaning they are close fitting. If you check out the measurements under the unstad products it’s probably easier to find out, since I don’t know more about the rest of your body measurements. You can also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further questions and we help you.

Will you have a uk distributor for this wetsuit? I'd love to try it but as it's only a mans fit I really don't know what size is best without actually trying it on

Thanks for your question regarding Norrøna wetsuit in UK. Per now we have a very limited distribution on the Unstad collection with wetsuits, and it is sold through Norrøna web shop and Norrøna Flagship / Concept stores. This means it is only physically available for testing in Norway and UK, but possible to purchase worldwide through the web shop. The fit is following the standards for wetsuits, meaning they are close fitting.
Best regards, Jens, Norrøna Fan Support

When you will stock women's wetsuits? I understand that women can use the men's wetsuits, but surely the point of a wetsuit is that it is a snug fit and most women are a markedly different shape than men, and in my case much smaller than your XS.
