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.

The Zone3 Azure Wetsuit is filled with surprises at every turn. Focusing on comfort and fit, the sheer quality of the material and properties are astonishing at this price point.
The innovative “Extreme Flex” material offers excellent flexibility around the shoulders and arms for a comfortable and energy efficient swim. This gives you the ability to move and use your full range of motion and glide freely through the water, conserving energy and reducing fatigue.
Improved Body Position
4mm Core Support Buoyancy Panels are strategically placed throughout the suit to improve the position of your legs and hips in the water. By keeping your hips and legs higher in this elevated position, the Azure suit helps you achieve a more streamlined efficient position; reducing drag and fatigue.
The Azure wetsuit is constructed using the advanced SpeedFlo (70%) and Smoothskin (30%) neoprene's. The amazing SpeedFlo neoprene from Yamamoto minimises drag and increases your speed through the water. This combined with the Smoothskin neoprene ensures the suit is as durable as it is fast. The suit includes a blend of 2mm and 4mm neoprene.
Ease of Use
The trademark Zone3 Silicone coated Pro-Speed CuffsTM on the wrist and ankle cuffs help increase the speed of removal and, therefore, save time and conserve energy. The high-quality YKK downwards zipper makes the suit easy to take on and off.
The Azure features a low neckline, excellent fit and Fully Stitched and Glue Bonded seams throughout, making it one of the most comfortable entry level wetsuits available. The bonded seams and the refined fit guarantee an enjoyable swim.
The Azure is the perfect suit for anybody just starting out in open water swimming or triathlon. Alternatively, it is a great training suit if you want to save your best suit for racing. The suit has been designed with a number of Zone3’s key features built-in to help ensure that you can have a fast and comfortable swim.
