Here are a few tips to assist you in selecting the proper size:
Tips for sizing:
For Speedsuit sizing please add 1-2 sizes after following the regular wetsuit sizing tips and chart, especially if you plan on wearing a tri-kit under the speedsuit.
If you are a female over 5’8”, we generally recommend that you size into a men’s wetsuit ONLY if you are ordering a fullsuit.
Note: If you’re ordering a sleeveless wetsuit, please order a women’s wetsuit. Men’s sleeveless wetsuits are cut lower in the armpits than women’s wetsuits, so it will not fit a woman as well as a men’s full sleeve wetsuit would. Please refer to our size guide and our size chart for complete sizing information.
Orders you place with us enter the shipping process very quickly so we can get your items to you as soon as possible. Once an order has been placed, it cannot be cancelled or modified so it is important to make sure your order is 100% correct when you place it!

While you might find yourself in T1 racing to get your wetsuit off, it is important to keep in mind the following suggestions to avoid damaging your suit:
Here are some basic tips to follow:
XTERRA WETSUITS does not recommend swimming in a chlorinated pool with your wetsuit. In fact, swimming in a chlorinated pool with your wetsuit can void the warranty and return/exchange policy. Chlorine accelerates the deterioration of the gluing on wetsuits. If the pool is salt water, not chlorine, then jump in with your wetsuit on!
Normally we do not recommend the use of our wetsuits in chlorinated pools, however, if extenuating circumstances offer no alterative (i.e. winter weather), then one brief swim is permitted under the 2 year limited warranty. To avoid chlorine damage to your wetsuit, we suggest that you limit your time in the pool to around 5 minutes and rinse the suit thoroughly with fresh water immediately afterwards.
XTERRA WETSUITS are designed as high performance triathlon wetsuits. Triathlon-specific wetsuits are delicate. Fingernail and other minor tears from sharp objects are NOT a manufacturing defect. Minor tears like this will not affect the performance or integrity of the wetsuit whatsoever if it has been repaired correctly.
