Where can I buy a stinger suit?

Hi there, any leads on where to buy a couple of stinger suits in KL? We're heading to Langkawi and thought it's worth taking some precautions against jellyfish stings.

Thanks in advance!

Hi

Any of the sports shops should sell these.

Alternatively Google for stockists or try Amazon.

Hi,

an interesting thread here:-

https://www.tripadvisor.com.my/ShowTopic-g29…

In checking with my usual(though had given up this sports already), KL Scuba also do not sell stinger suit.

Though from my experience the term stinger suit in fact comes from Australia(to be verified), but this is good info:-

Thanks for the replies. The linked topic says they're available at Langkawi Fair but I was wondering if any of the shops in KL carried them as well.

Unfortunately, Amazon is not an option as we're already in SE Asia and have been stung by jellyfish (ouch).

Frankly, you can forget about the jellyfish in Langkawi. I don't think you will even see one during this time. Normally is between July and august you will encounter Jellyfishes.

flowi f - box jellyfish were killing people in Thailand in September and October. I don't think they observe a closed season any more!
