DHB AERON LAB 3.0

-

£350 Dhb suggests that you’ll ‘unleash the fastest version of yourself’ with the Aeron Lab 3.0, so understand­ably we were excited. It certainly feels lightweigh­t with super soft neoprene, and it was easy to get on and off, feeling great to wear, but there’s a seam lying across the top of the arm that could lead to chafing over time. Range of motion was excellent thanks to the 2mm thick neoprene on the shoulder panels and arms. With the lower half of the wetsuit being made of 4mm neoprene, the Aeron doesn’t provide the greatest buoyancy, but it’s great for swimmers who are already happy with their position in the water. Unlike other wetsuits on test, the Aeron has a seam at bikini line level, which we felt detracted from its otherwise good looks. wiggle.co.uk

VERDICT GOOD VALUE, LIGHTWEIGH­T

85 SUIT FOR STRONG SWIMMERS; SEAM AT % BIKINI LEVEL IS OPINION-DIVIDING
