Swimming or surfing in very cold water requires the ultimate protection. Here we've brought together the best rated and highest quality 6mm and 7mm winter wetsuits for men. Available in both thick and hooded styles from some of the UK's leading brands – including Billabong, Gul, Typhoon, O'Neill, Mystic, Rip Curl and Animal – we've also got experts on hand to help you out with finding the right sizes, brands or styles for your needs. We've quite literally got you covered – from head to toe – so you're ready to head out into the coldest of waters. The thickness of the neoprene is indicated in most product descriptions, so for example a 6mm wetsuit is as it sounds with 6mm neoprene, whereas a 5/4 wetsuit uses 5mm neoprene where you need it most to keep body core temperature up, with 4mm on arms and legs to give greater flexibility. Hooded wetsuits come in two styles, fully integrated our with a zip-out hood. Most wetsuits of this kind use 'GBS' (glued blind stitched) or similar seams, to prevent cold water flowing in through stitch holes.
