Speedo Kid’s UV Thermal Suit Review


Speedo WetsuitsGetting children involved in fun in the pool or on the beach is a tremendous amount of fun for parents too! Teaching your kids to be happy and confident in the water is a great gift and they will thank for you it in years to come.

However, with the fun come risks.  Messing about in the water is great until you consider the harmful nature of UV rays. Fortunately, Speedo has come up with a range of kids’ stuff called ‘fun in the sun’.  The Speedo Kids’ UV Thermal suit is just one item in the range which is made using UV50+ ‘block the burn’ technology.

On top of the UV protection, this fabulous suit also offers added buoyancy in the water and extra warmth so that your little one can enjoy the water for longer without getting too cold. The neoprene/nylon fabric used in this suit is really comfortable and sizes range from toddler up to children’s size 9/10 so you can kit out your whole brood.

Speedo WetsuitsPros and Cons

For most parents, the zipper being located at the front of the Speedo Kids’ UV Thermal suit is a huge help as back zippers can be a little complicated for smaller people!  The UVA/UVB protection is a huge plus too, knowing your child is protected at such levels is very reassuring.  The suit looks great and your child will feel like a pro watersporter in one of these beauties.  The suits are also very durable and will last as long as your kids fit into them!

On the downside, ordering the Speedo Kids’ UV Thermal suit online presents a slight problem as the sizing is a bit unpredictable.  Really, you need your little one to try the suit on to ensure they are getting the right size.  Also, it’s quite a thin suit so be sure that you’re not going to be using it in very cold waters or it won’t supply enough warmth for your little one.  Alternatively, if you do need to order online, check the returns policy of the supplier to ensure you can organize a fuss-free exchange if necessary.

Other than that, the Speedo Kids’ UV Thermal suit receives warm reviews especially for the style, comfort and price.

Final Thoughts

This Speedo Kids’ UV Thermal suit is very well manufactured and is super easy to get on and off – which is a godsend when you’re out and about.  It’ll keep your kids warm and protected while they have some fun in the water and ticks all the boxes for concerned parents.  The kids won’t mind wearing it too as it looks great.  The suits are especially great for toddlers as one-pieces such as the Speedo Kids’ UV Thermal suit offer great comfort as well as much-needed protection.  Prices currently range between $27 and $45 depending on what size is required which is more than affordable, especially when you consider the benefits.
