Varman Wetsuit

November 8, 2019

In this post I gathered information about HUUB Varman wetsuit – description and key features from the manufacturer website plus added reviews and experiences from users. Why do you think HUUB called the wetsuit Varman? The development of the wetsuit is a collaboration between Huub and superstar tri swimmers, Richard Varga and Henri Schoeman, hence the name of the wetsuit. Interesting also that one of the meanings of the word Varman from Sanskrit means “armor”.
