Can I cut the legs off my wetsuit?
Just use a sharp pair if scissors and cut straight. It’s neoprene so you won’t have fibers fraying like you would a pair of cut off shorts.
Can you cut wetsuit legs shorter?
Using a sharp knife or scissors, cut the arms and/or legs to the desired length. We recommend cutting parallel to original cut on the wetsuit (note: the ankles are cut diagonally to maintain a bigger opening to aid you in getting your wetsuit on and off)
Can you trim the length of a wetsuit?
Arms and Legs are Secondary. Likewise, it’s relatively easy to deal with arms or legs that are too long by trimming them to length. In fact, many wetsuits come with extra long legs and arms; the wetsuit manufacturer expects you to trim them once you have decided on the purchase and include instructions on how to trim.
How do you cut the arm on a wetsuit?
Just make sure you use a sharp pair of sicizors or blade. Most wetsuits have seam tape that runs up the seams from the arm and leg openings. Just make sure you cut where there is still seam tape–don’t cut above where the seam tape ends.
Does it matter if a wetsuit is too long?
Absolutely! If you size your wetsuit too tight, not only will it be a total battle to get in and out of, but it’ll also restrict circulation, making you fatigue faster and lose coordination. You need blood flowing into your arms and legs in order to keep them warm.
What if a wetsuit is too long?
Especially in winter wetsuits you don’t want them to crawl up your leg and/or arm. So a little bit too long doesn’t represent a problem. Because too much loose neoprene can cause chaffing, wetsuit rash.
Why do wetsuit legs fill with water?
Hello, Sounds like the wetsuit may be too big. A swimmers wetsuit should fit like second skin with no bagginess anywhere in the suit. If water is getting in and filling the legs then there is too much water coming into the suit and the suit is not tight enough that water can gather in the legs.
Can I cut the arms off my wetsuit?
By cutting off the sleeves you need to get them not only sealed (so they don’t fray) but fitted correctly, otherwise you will not allow the wetsuit to do its job and trap water to form a thermal layer. Just my advise, but if your wearing it to stay warm, don’t cut the sleeves, spend the money and do it right.
Can you make a wetsuit smaller?
“ Absolutely yes, wetsuits can be altered! ” We can alter your neoprene wet suit, microprene, Lavcore or Polartec suit. Generally, making a suit smaller is less expensive than making it larger, because we don’t have to add more material.
Can I cut neoprene?
Cut neoprene to a precise size for any pattern or project. Neoprene is commonly known for its use in wet suits and kayak spray skirts but is also used to make laptop cases, wine bags and lunch sacks, shoes components and adhesives. Slice neoprene cleanly to reduce waste and give it a straight edge.
