Best-selling HUUB Aegis II suit in its unique thermal guise. With iconic races Alaskaman™ and the Isklar Norseman looming, we can never forget that these races test bodies to the extreme. So triathletes need equipment to protect them from all conditions, especially the cold.
The Aegis II thermal is a marriage of the best-selling, super flexible, award-winning suit with a new and proven thermal lining that presents an opportunity to race and train in colder temperatures while maintaining the HUUB non-wetsuit feel. Perfect for extreme triathlon events like these that HUUB are proud to support.
If you are racing to the extremes, make sure your equipment can deliver.
The thermal lining in this suit is only a thin layer, giving the suit extra warmth but without the risk of overheating. A great all-round suit for NZ conditions!

When looking at the size chart, we recommend that you firstly use the weight in KG for the most accurate body fit. We suggest you choose a size based on as close to the top end of each weight as you can get. Although important in the sizing decision, height is considered as the second choice after the weight.
As an example, if you are a Male at 67kg and 6'0", we would suggest the SMT size, even though you are a little taller than that specified.
Fitting your wetsuit
It is vitally important to get a close fitting wetsuit. Once you have an optimally fitted wetsuit on it feels like a second skin which is what makes it so effective when you are in the water. But with a garment that fits so tightly, the challenge is in how to get it on without damaging the suit or chafing or trapping your skin. Adjusting the suit to fit your body comfortably so that it doesn't cause discomfort whilst you are swimming also needs a little practice.
In this video, HUUB's Dean Jackson and Slovak triathlete Richard Varga show you top tips on how to get a close fitting triathlon wetsuit onto your body and how to adjust it for performance.
