So I am planning on doing my first triathlons this summer. I really can't see myself investing in a full-on wetsuit unless I realize I've missed my calling and want to do this all the time.
I have a pair of neoprene shorts from when I used to paddle. Could I add something like a this and call myself good?
I understand the reasons people wear wetsuits. I am more interested in staying warm and minimal constriction around my shoulders. I swam in high school and played club water polo in college (15 years ago) so I don't think I need the extra buoyancy (I have a beer drinking regimen that helps with that part).
I guess my question is: has anyone out their janked together some swimwear like this or seen it done? Opinions?
