You could try renting one:

It's only $35 for a week, and you get a credit towards the purchase of a new one.

Hey Scott,
I have already tried that and I did not have a good experience.
Also, I do not feel comfortable renting a used wetsuit that a lot of people have used probably for years.
So if anybody has a wetsuit that I can borrow or buy, please let me know
Matt

Did you try the local bike shops? I know the Bike Rack on Q street rents wetsuits.

You might not have much luck asking to borrow one, people are generally pretty protective over their wetsuits, as they are expensive and can puncture easily.

Also you can try wesuitrentals.com. Based out of CA I think, but reasonable prices and I was pleased with my one experience with them.

Matt - I have an fullsleeved Orca (can't remember if it's the Evo or Equip) wetsuit that I no longer use. I probably used it in about 10 races and I believe that it's a Medium-Large, but would have to double check tonight.

Let me know if you're interested.

Did you ever think about just buying a new one directly from a wetsuit company? There are plenty of wetsuit companies out there and you can expedite shipping if you need it soon.

Xterra is a merchant partner of ours and we have an excellent discount set up with them. Just go to the Partners page of the website for the details.

Yeah, buying might be the best option. I love my xterra vortex and got a great deal. Good luck.

Which triathlon are you doing soon? Hopefully nothing too lucky or wetsuit or not, you'll freeze your @#$ off!!!
