The 'T' in the sizing guide shows a 'Tall' sizing. Generally, this garment has the height sizing of the next largest garment. For example, a medium tall (MT) would be the width sizing of a medium with the height sizing of a large.


"I have been using this wetsuit for a few years on my Musto Skiff. I wear it throughout the year (except on very hot days) and have found it excellent in all conditions. It has good padding and copes well with the abrasive non-slip on a Musto Skiff."

By Bruce Keen (Fareham, Hampshire), Musto Skiff World and National Champion 2012



Featured Review

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Excellent trapezing wetsuit, 1.30.2015 

Please note: This product has been discontinued and a great alternative is the new Rooster Thermaflex Long John.  We have some sizes so just ask if you are interested.

Optional Extras

You can use Rooster Lycra Shorts to give you the right amount of grip and slip and prevent damage to the neoprene from an abrasive deck - for example when hiking hard in a Laser®. 

Internally attached via the Pro Hike System the Rooster Shin Tech Long John is compatible with both Pro Hike and/or Shin Pads which are available/sold separately. See the Related Items tab above for more information.


We recommend hand washing in warm soapy water and allowing to air dry out of the sun.
