FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Deep See Wet Suit Review

First I am not a diver, have never been a diver and am not even sure that scuba is spelled correctly. Second if you think this is some kind of kinky thing, think again, it is a 3mm wet suit, scuba type, nothing kinky.

If I am not a diver, why you may wonder would I buy a wet suit? Well age plays a part. I am a tad bit older than when I first put in my pool and I am retired. The older part means that my tolerance for ice water has slipped a bit. The retired part means no income. No income means that when my pool heater died, I decided that $3,000.00 for a new heater and $1,500.00/season for propane was an expense I could avoid.

Initially this meant that I wasn’t swimming early or late in the season. Then one of my buddies jokingly suggested that he needed a wet suit for my pool because it was so cold. He has also suggested he has to break through the ice to get in and I vehemently deny that. I questioned him on wet suits and discovered that they can keep you warm. Who knew?

I ordered a Deep See Mens Shorty Front Zip from Austin Kayak. $89.00 and free shipping. It paid for itself big time! I swam on days with wind and cold water that the faint of heart would avoid like the plague. It worked great, was great quality and according to my diving buddy it was a very good price. One of the things I liked most about this wet suit was the zipper up the front. Most of the wet suits I looked at zipped up the back which is really annoying to try and zip when you are by yourself.

In case you ever watched Boston Legal and saw the episode were Shatner and Spader were wearing shorty wet suits, I DO NOT LOOK LIKE THAT!  

Please note that the photo of the wet suit is sans person due to my desire to preserve the myth of my manly physique.  That and I really don’t have the time to answer all the love/hate mail that a photo of me in the wet suit would generate. LOL
