Our neoprene vest is designed as a thermal base layer to be worn under a wetsuit for extra warmth during cold water swim training, or for any other water sports where an extra layer of warmth is needed.

The 2mm neoprene layer is tight fitting and has a high neck for fuller coverage and a single seam for extra comfort. There is a titanium coating applied to the internal material to help maintain the body's warmth. Made from open cell neoprene on the inside and super-stretch material on the outside and then glued and blind stitched.

Predominantly aimed at the outdoor swimmer however the vest can also be used during pool training to give extra buoyancy where needed. Paired with buoyancy shorts or jammers, the vest also a great option when the water is too warm for a wetsuit.

Key Features:

  • Super Snug fit for added warmth when outdoors.
  • 2mm neoprene.
  • Glued and blind stitched seams.
  • Can be used on its own, or under a wetsuit.
  • Titanium heat retention coating.

Key Benefits:

  • Add warmth to your wetsuit, or use when a wetsuit is too warm.
  • Can be used on its own, or under a wetsuit.

    It really does help keep you warm!

    I was careful to order according to the size chart on the re-seller's website, which went by chest size, only. When it arrived, I was worried that it was too small, because I found it really hard to get the head hole over my head, and the "stickiness" of the inner coating was a little off-putting. Once it was on, it felt like it was choking me. I came to the Zone3 website, and confirmed it should be the right size for me, so, I put the head-hole over a cylinder for rolling out your tight muscles and left it there, overnight. I tried it on the next day, and felt it was much improved: I didn't feel like I was being choked, anymore. I tried it in 12C water on the weekend under my wetsuit, and it was perfect! I was worried I would not be able to get it off, especially if my fingers weren't working too well because they were cold, but it came off extremely easily. I wasn't expecting that! I'm definitely keeping, but women (or men with longer hair), the "sticky" inside really does catch and break your hair when you're putting it on over your head! I may try to put a swim cap on first, but I'm not sure how that would work.

    Sticky!

    I have other zone 3 products and they’re great. Mainly heat tech which I think is beet on the market. However, I really don’t like the feel of this. The inside (they say a titanium layer) is very tacky/ sticky so is weird to the skin. For me was very hard to get on and off because of this. Wore inside out mode it easier though.

    Confort

    Right sizing and very confortable with no strains or friction on the body including nech. Makes the open water swim under low or medium temperature much friendly maintaining the body at the right temperature. Easy to dress and undress. Should have been bought this some years ago!

    Extra warmth under wetsuit

    I bought this to enhance the warmth of my 2.5/2mm wetsuit, and it does just the trick (swimming in water that is currently 12.5 degrees). It is quite a trick to get it on (and off, when you are wet!), but well worth it. I am 5'3'', 118lbs and ordered an XS. It is not tight around my neck or armpits (the wholes are large...the disadvantage of a unisex cut) - so I will not be wearing it without my wetsuit, but it fits great around the waist and doesn't roll up as I'm putting my wetsuit on.
