I prefer to use the wetsuit. I am a warm water fish, 18 is cold for me used to swim in the mediterranean. I know for you guys in the Pacific , it's different.

Thank you for your tips.

Hi Joe,

I haven't tried the lanolin, sounds like that should work much better than most products. Body Glide (stick) dissolves quickly. But I have used the TriSlide oil, spray on both inside of wetsuit around neck and armpits and on the skin too - much better results than Body Glide no chafe and had to towel it off too. But haven't use for 10k wetsuit swimming. Here's a link to trislide: http://www.swimoutlet.com/p/trislide-4oz-10450/ (Works good on feet too for long distance running)
