We categorise our Ex-Demo wetsuit in grades, from A to D. This is based on the condition of the wetsuit and will not affect the overall performance of the wetsuit in the water. The grading conditions are non-negotiable and by purchasing an Ex-Demo wetsuit you are agreeing to the grading terms highlighted below:
Grade A-New without packaging / like new or almost as good as new. Tags are likely missing, and they may have been used for activities such as sizing & visual demo’s or may just have lost the box. The suit will be in perfect condition with no large nicks or damage from use. Extremely small marks may be present on the wetsuit but there will not be any human-made damage to the wetsuit for it to be considered an A Grade wetsuit.
Grade B - Likely to have been used as event or store demo suits for sizing or may have been on a rack or on display for the season. Grade B wetsuits will have the odd mark, nick or possible slight cosmetic marks/damage (e.g. fingernail marks, fading/peeling to design), as well as aspects of Grade A. Grade B wetsuits will still perform perfectly. Grade B suits may have been also used in test/hire situations so may have slight wear to them but very low levels.
Grade C- wetsuits will come with small/occasional patch repairs. They will also come with nicks and marks. Some products will have larger fingernail marks than those in Grade B. Grade C wetsuits are perfectly usable and will not have any performance-related shortcomings. Simply the aesthetic and the condition of the suit will vary to that of a brand new, unused wetsuit.
Grade D- wetsuits will have larger or more frequent nicks and marks than those suits listed as Grade C. When purchasing a Grade D wetsuit they may come with marks thatneed repairing at your discretion (either by yourself or through a neoprene repair company). We recommend purchasing neoprene glue with your Grade D purchase. The Grade D wetsuit will perform perfectly however it will come with some aesthetic damage.
