Nieuwland 4 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.


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

80% neoprene, 20% polyester / nylon, sourced from Taiwan. Suits manufactured in Taiwan.

As with all Finisterre products, a lot of attention and care has gone into making this wetsuit; seams, neoprene, construction and fit. In this respect, we warranty all seams and neoprene against defects in manufacturing and materials for the period of one year post purchase. If you find any defects in this suit, please get in touch as soon as possible.

Avoid taking off on hard, abrasive surfaces / Wash out with fresh water after every use / Leave to drip dry inside out out of direct sunlight, do not hang from shoulders / Never machine wash, tumble dry or use bleach / Clean with mild detergent by hand / This will become your trusty steed in the dead of winter, do not pee in it

Fab wetsuit for Winter in the North Sea!

Great to have a woman specific design that's intended for winter and has an integrated hood. I've only had custom made wetsuits previously as I'm really short so it was a leap of faith to try an "off the peg". Although the fit is not as exact as my custom made one it still looks canny and keeps me toasty warm! Definitely recommend for any lasses dipping into the North Sea.

Great warm suit but hard to take off

So warm, flexible and true to size, really glad I bought this suit. The only down side is it’s really difficult to get out of, can’t get out of it by myself as arms get stuck. Hoping this will get easier after a few more wears though. Would still recommend!

Amazing warm wetsuit

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 ive been told is quite flattering! always nice as an added bonus. I find it always takes a few practices at getting in and out of these types of suits easily when they are brand new, but like Finisterre say, they will loosen up a bit, and after a couple of wears in and out in a jiffy. Im really happy with this suit, and would defiantly recommend it.

Gorgeous

In all honesty, I haven't worn it yet. I live in Wisconsin and bought this for year-round surfing and swimming in Lake Michigan. I can comment that it is truly gorgeous and feels wonderful to the touch. I am really happy with the customer service process that I went through before purchasing. Shipping was fast and secure. I can't wait to try out the suit and will have to update after. I have been really satisfied with all my Finisterre produts, the company's ethos and values, and I am so happy to support them with my $.
