What are the differences between the Aspire and Thermal Aspire wetsuits?Updated a year ago

The Thermal Aspire wetsuit is our warmest wetsuit.

The Heat-Tech Fleece lining makes this the ideal cooler weather suit or for those who like to stay warmer in the water. The Thermal Aspire has been carefully constructed to maintain body heat around the key muscles and organs. Based on Zone3’s award winning Aspire wetsuit.

The Thermal Aspire is suitable for anybody swimming in waters between 10-18 Celsius, with the thermal fleece lining added to core areas so that your open water swim season can last longer, perfect for wild swimming in colder waters.

Staying warm is the key feature of this wetsuit, to achieve that we have combined Premium SCS #39 Yamamoto fabrics known for their high heat retention, with our Heat-Tech fleece lining for the key muscles groups which require extra warmth when swimming in colder conditions. Additionally, we have made key panel design changes to maximise body warmth. Chest, leg and body panels are a combination of 3mm and 4mm and thickness plus a 4mm lining, but the shoulders and arms still maintain a 2mm thickness with high stretch lining for flexibility and 7x more expansion than conventional wetsuit materials.

We would recommend going up a size in the Thermal because of the added fleece lining.

These Diagrams below show the difference in panel designs between the Aspire and the Thermal Aspire. With an extra diagram of the Heat-tech lining.
