Yonda Ghost wetsuit

From their base in Yorkshire, new British brand Yonda have developed a really flexible wetsuit that will appeal to swimmers looking for a suit that is light and unrestrictive. 

The suit felt really comfortable and there was no rubbing on the neck when we tested it (in lidos, the open water and (bizarrely) while synchronised swimming). The neoprene used throughout is light and flexible so might not suit swimmers looking for maximum buoyancy.

The suit looks good with simple, geometric highlighting in neon green or pink.

The Ghost has a breakout zip so is easily undone (useful if you are also a triathlete) and is perhaps one of the easiest wetsuits to get out of we have ever tested – we could just kick it off in seconds.
