A decent wetsuit can be quite expensive, so renting is a good option, at least until you feel sure that your new hobby will become a regular part of your life. These suits are meant to help you race faster. A wetsuit will also keep you warm in water that is USAT legal temperature (78.0 F). If you have an A race, a wetsuit might take away that extra time you need for the place on the podium.
Gear for Multisport stocks a wide range of wetsuits in a variety styles and sizes for you to rent at an affordable rate. And if you find your new suit is so comfortable that you don’t want to part from it, the rental charge will be deducted from the purchase of the suit within 90 days of renting.
We ensure that each athlete knows how to put on the wetsuit properly, and in order to do that, wetsuits must be tried on in our main store. Please bring correct clothing to try on your rental or to purchase a wetsuit. Swimsuit or tri-clothes are acceptable to try on underneath the wetsuit.
Reserved suits will be charged the agreed rate plus tax at the time of reservation, and are non-refundable five days prior to the event. There are no refunds if the suits are not used by the renter after collection. However, if a swim is cancelled at an event and the wetsuit hasn’t been used at all we will gladly give you a $20 credit towards your next rental.
Wetsuits can be expensive to maintain, so we have to charge a minimum of $15 for each blemish found after a rented suit has been returned. For information on how to look after your wetsuit, please look at our dos and don’ts tip sheet. wetsuit care tip sheet.
