TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

How to choose the right wetsuit (Part 1)

The first selection criterion when choosing a surfing wetsuit is the water temperature. Water temperature varies according to the location and the time of the year. Systematically ensure that the water temperature at your location corresponds to the recommended temperature range: Warm water above 20°C. Temperate water between 17 and 22°C. Cold water between 12 and 17°C. Very cold water between 7 and 12°C. Visit the site seatemperature.org to find out the temperature of your location.

How to choose the right wetsuit (Part 2)

The 2nd criterion to take into account is the length of your sessions. If your sessions last less than an hour, the 100 models will be suitable. For up to 2 hours, opt for the 500 models and for up to 3 hours, the 900 models.
Compared to the 100 models, the 500 models will be warmer (and more watertight) and more efficient at reducing fatigue (more freedom of movement) and irritation. The same is true for the 900 models compared with the 500 models.
NB: the 900 models are easier to put on.

Choose the right size

To make the most of the features of your wetsuit, it is necessary to choose the correct size. A surfing wetsuit should be a very tight fit and there should be no visible folds. When dry, it is perfectly normal to feel like it is too tight, this discomfort disappears as soon as the wetsuit gets wet. If you choose a wetsuit that is too big, folds will appear, you will experience irritation and thermal comfort will be reduced (letting in water).
Try it on before you buy it!

Materials

OLAIAN 900 wetsuits are made from 100% ultra-stretch neoprene for thermal comfort and maximum flexibility. The neoprene is lined with synthetic fabric for added resistance to wear. Neoprene thickness: 5 and 4 mm. Neoprene is a closed-cell polychloroprene elastomeric foam with trapped nitrogen bubbles that have insulating properties.
The flexibility of the 900 range is provided by the super-stretch properties of the foam and the textile.

Neck

The neck finish has been developed to limit irritation. According to the sensitivity of the wearer, a UV top can be worn under the wetsuit to reduce the risk of irritation. The application of grease (e.g. Vaseline) in friction areas (neck, underarms, knees) is also recommended if wearing the wetsuit for long periods.

Maximum freedom of movement

The 900 OLAIAN men's wetsuit range offers a style and material specifically chosen to facilitate paddling and fully ease movement. The entire wetsuit is made from ultra-stretch neoprene. All the seams are stretch seams. The front zip totally frees up the back during use.

Zip/Removable hood

The 900 5/4 Switch wetsuit benefits from our new removable hood. Depending on the conditions and your preferences, you can choose between a normal collar or hood built directly into the suit. This variation is permitted by the two zips used in the opening system.
The front zip that fastens across the front of the chest ensures freedom of movement while providing a better watertight seal than a traditional back zip. The zip slider is made of stainless steel to withstand exposure to salt water.

Magnet fastening/Pacemaker warning Key pocket

Magnets can interfere with the proper functioning of pacemakers and implantable defibrillators.
• A pacemaker could switch into test mode and cause faintness.
• A defibrillator may stop working.
• If you wear either of these devices, keep a sufficient distance away from magnets.
NB There is a key pocket in the front panel under the zip.

Watertight assembly

The seams are stitched and glued for a watertight seal and durability.
The seams are "blind-stitched", meaning the thread does not entirely pass through the neoprene, preventing water getting through.
To further enhance the watertight seal and durability of the assembly of our 900 ranges, they are fully taped on the inside.
The absence of threads on the inside also avoids irritation and chafing.
Patches for comfort and reinforcement are strategically placed on the inside in sensitive areas.

Water stoppers

The ankles and wrists feature silicone stoppers to help stop water getting in.
They also help keep the suit firmly in place when using gloves and boots.

Windproof honeycombed neoprene

Windproof panel on the chest of the wetsuit (Fine Mesh smooth neoprene) to prevent the shivering which can occur as a result of windchill when surfing, bodyboarding, windsurfing or kitesurfing. Lined with a hollow honeycombed interior that provides even more insulation from the cold, this component improves the thermal comfort of the suit.

Quick drying

The 900 5/4 SWITCH wetsuit features a new brushed fleece inner lamination. This enables not only a minimal weight increase in the water but also ultra-fast drying. It can therefore be used several times a day while still keeping a dry feel when put on.

Stay warm for longer thanks to our thermal accessories! Each temperature range has its own outfit...

When we are in the water, we lose more than half of our body heat through our extremities (feet, hands, head). Consequently, here are the recommended accessories:
- in warm water and temperate water (>17°C) => neoprene low booties.
- in cold water (12-17°C): High booties (boots) and gloves.
- in very cold water (7-12°C): High booties (boots), gloves, hood, and hooded top...

Multi-water sports wetsuits

Our wetsuits are designed to meet the needs of the most demanding surfers.
Our design choices also make them compatible with other water sports such as kitesurfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, water skiing, sea wading or SUP (stand up paddle boarding)..

Review after over 2 years of use.
Finbarr (United Kingdom) Used for More than 2 years
Wetsuit when first purchased was surfed in 4 degree water and was amazing. Over 2 years and 200+ surfs later it is noticeably colder. However it can still handle 2h sessions in 8 degree water provided you have good quality boots and gloves. After two years the elastic bands at the end of the arms and legs have had to be re-glued. The seams around the wind panels on the front and back have had to be re-glued as well, These however have been removed on the latest version so this shouldn't be an issue. This wetsuit has been fairly well cared for so a user should expect 2 years of heavy usage or longer if used less frequently.
Experienced kitesurfer. Kite most days.
Julien (United Kingdom) Used for 2 week or less
I kitesurf, in the UK, all year round, and am lucky enough to get in the water any day there is enough wind. I have owned a lot of wetsuits in the last 40 years, and currently own 3 winter wetsuits and 2 spring/summer wetsuits.
I bought this suit today because i am kiting in the South of France in January and the hooded wetsuit i brought with me would be too warm for even the coldest days here and wanted an inexpensive suit that i could use here and at the start of the UK winter.
This suit looked like a bit of a bargain price wise, but having used it i would say it offers only fair or good value.
The air temperature today was 10deg the water temp was 13deg, and i would say that is the perfect conditions for the suit, I was not cold and kited for 3 hours.
I WOULD take issue with the lower temperatures advertised, I would not want to use this suit in water temperatures below 9 degrees. But at a push if you didn’t have the luxury of being able to afford a 6/5 in addition maybe you could get away with it.

The reason i suggest the suit is only good value rather than a bargain is it is made of a neoprene that is quite stiff in comparison to what is available. I no longer buy the supper stretchy neoprene suits as they do not wear well with the amount of kiting i am lucky enough to enjoy, so it suits me fine. But if you only kite at weekends and want a really flexible suit that lasts a couple of seasons maybe look elsewhere. On the water kitesurfing i honestly cant tell the difference between a stretchy suit and this one, but you might when paddle surfing. I would recommend with the caveats above. Oh and one more thing, like others have mentioned it leaks water at the knees.
