Women's Nieuwland 4mm Hooded Wetsuit

After over a year of testing and feedback from our Women's Wetsuit Tester Programme, we are excited to finally launch our women's Nieuwland wetsuit. Designed to keep you in the water for longer, this hooded suit is designed for sea temperatures in the region of 8-14°C. Features include an extra 5mm lumbar patch and high pile lining for increased heat retention, wide internal seam tape and our signature calf loops to aid entry and exit.

Wetsuits ship worldwide for free.

"5 Star - I bought this suit after a couple of fellow surfers were telling me how warm it was! I really feel the cold so for me warmth is right up there as a priority. I was a little skeptical as its only a 4.5/3.5 not 5/3 which im used to but this suit does not disappoint!! In winter I usually last an hour in the surf, but on my first session in this suit I stayed in for two and a half hours (and only got out because I was knackered.... NOT cold). The sizing is great and it actually looks nice on too, and I've been told is quite flattering! Always nice as an added bonus." - Eleanor M.


Fit

  • A good fit is essential for keeping warm. Our suits are made to a bespoke pattern and may vary from other suits you have owned. See the size guide to get the right fit, and if you're still not sure which size to choose give us a call on 01872 554 481

  • Your wetsuit should be a tight fit when new, and will loosen off slightly after 10-15 wears

  • Studio model is wearing a size 6 and is 5'5" / 165cm tall, chest 32" / 81cm, waist 25" / 63.5cm, hips 36" / 91cm

  • Please note we use UK sizes

Details

  • 4.5mm chest and back panel, 3.5 mm arms and legs

  • Designed for sea temperatures in the region of 8-14°C

  • Higher internal pile in over 80% of the suit for greater heat retention

  • Elongated back panel, improving heat retention

  • Extra 5mm neoprene lumbar patch over lower back, providing key warmth

  • High proportion of flexible neoprene across shoulders and through upper body to aid easy paddling

  • Double needle blind stitched throughout suit: a safer stitch that will better weather the wear and tear of the suit (no need for a seam sealant that often ends up cracking)

  • 50% wider seam tape in key areas, reducing water penetration; also adhering better to the suit, improving the durability

  • Finisterre custom neck pattern – reduced flushing as well as helping entry / exit

  • Tension wrist bands, improving wrist seal

  • Bespoke calf loops – a design feature to help suit entry

  • Made in Taiwan

Designed by YOU - the Women's Wetsuit Tester Programme

Our Women's Wetsuit Tester Programme ran over the winter of 2017, with 100 women across Europe wearing our suits. The programme culminated earlier this year with the WTTP Camp, a weekend of feedback (and of course surf) with Mat D'Ascoli. The finished suit is based on this invaluable feedback. Tested and designed by you.

Fabric Sourcing & Sustainability

Warm and comfortable

Bought this wetsuit for open water swimming, surfing and paddle boarding. All 3 activities completed! The suit was warm and comfortable and not restrictive on movement. It is initially hard to get on but I would advise a few practice runs and you soon find your technique. You may need some assistance getting out of it though. Especially if your arms are tired!

Game changer

This wetsuit is incredible. Going from a cheap and cheerful 2/3mm to this bad boy in the North Sea & Atlantic Ocean is a game changer...I was in deep open sea snorkelling without the need to acclimatise. Only minimal water entered the wetsuit, none down the back of the neck due to the front zip and attached hood. I needed assistance to take it off especially the hood and shoulders. Hopefully it will loosen slightly with time. The wetsuit arrived in a cardboard box, no protective packaging which was strange given the price of the suit and the distance it was being shipped. The box was bashed but suit wasn’t damaged.

Super warm

Really lovely wetsuit- super warm and soft . Really pleased that the fabric allows a lot of movement, especially in the shoulder area, which is very helpful when trying to pop up on a surfboard. It’s a bit of a wriggle trying to get it on but each time is easier.

Snug and superb quality

I have just purchased this suit, so, I haven't had a chance to try it out in the water yet. However, the dry land review is very good! I am a UK6 and the fit is perfect. I usually find the lower back area baggy with excess material in other suits, but this one is really well fitted. You can feel that it's designed and made well. It feels stretchy too which is a pleasant surprise. I like the details around the wrist and ankles - there's going to be no cold drips getting in there! It's definitely a trick to get in and out of, but, I think overtime it will become easier. So far so good. I'll send the cold water review soon!

Incredibly warm wetsuit

I ordered this wetsuit to surf in the cold waters of Cape Town, South Africa and was not disappointed. I chose Finisterre because i was looking for a more ethical wetsuit company, and Finisterre's B-corporation status fit the criteria. The wetsuit is incredibly warm. It is a little tight to put on the first few times, especially the hood, but the wetsuit does come with a warning that it takes about 10 days before it becomes a little easier. And after a few days in did in fact become easier to put on. The 5mm lumbar patch is definitely a bonus, and for the first time in a while i found myself leaving the water because i was tired instead of cold! In addition the built in hood is very comfortable, and does not get in the way when wanting to surf without it.
