Richard H asked the question in Virgin Active London Triathlon

What should I wear?

I've had various recommendations on this. What type of wetsuit should I get? What should I wear underneath in preparation for the cycle and running elements?

I went to a total fitness shop in Nottingham, they were really good. I had my mind on a wetsuit, they talked to me about my swimming and sold me another suit at a third of the price of the one I wanted. Good starting point.

Thanks for that Richard. What type of suit did they recommend for the swim? Are you happy with it?

Stating the obvious its important you get a swim/tri specific one - it will allow movement in the shoulders etc. Orca ones are quite affordable for possibly a one time triathloner http://tribesports.com/products?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=&brand_id%5B%5D=2021&commit=Search&sort_by=relevance&price_from=&price_to=&category_path=watersports-equipment%2Fwetsuits%2Fswimming-triathlon-wetsuits&region=gb. Have you spoken to your local triathlon shop - many hire wetsuits (good ones) for a season for about £40

Sorry for the slow reply. I have got an Orca equip, having completed 2 events I am very happy with it. Fits great. When you get a suit, make sure to do a few things to stop it from 'cutting' 1, cut your nails, 2, use rubber gloves, 3 buy some black witch glue ( you can get this from wiggle.com for a fiver). Have you got a suit sorted yet?
