How to Get a Great Wetsuit Fit

Here are some tips for getting the best fit out of your ROKA wetsuit. Our Maverick wetsuits require a bit of extra attention because they are so stretchy up top.  That stretch provides unparalleled range of motion, but sometimes it lures you into thinking you've got the suit pulled up all the way when in fact you don't. If you don't have the suit pulled up, you can get a bit more neck leakage than normal. Follow these tips, and you should be good to go!
