Worn in more Ironman races than any other wetsuit, the Vector Pro Fullsuit is designed for optimum speed and flexibility, with added arm/shoulder panels to allow greater range of motion of swim strokes, simulating the experience of wearing a sleeveless wetsuit.
● 6 anatomically-correct arm/shoulder panels allow for a natural range of motion in the swim stroke, for faster, smoother swimming with less effort
● Lower-profile collar adds comfort and increased durability, ensuring that the suit stays intact and in place
● X-MAX Seam Seal technology uses a triple layer of glue and double-blind stitching to ensure long-lasting waterproof seams
● FRONT: 5.0 mm-thick neoprene from neck to ankles
● BACK: 3 mm neoprene
● ARMS/SHOULDERS: 1.5 mm Super GKA neoprene
● Fully coated with the slickest skin coating, maintaining a 0.03 drag coefficient
● High-quality X-FLEX liner lines the entire interior of the suit, allowing the wetsuit to stretch in all four directions and return to its original shape (most mid-level wetsuits only use a high quality liner in the arms)
● Red X logo on the chest, left arm and below the Velcro
● White X logo on the inside torso lining
● Forearm catch panels for effective “catch-pull” stroke
● Fully adjustable Velcro neck closure
● 2” zipper protector flap inside the suit
● Sturdy zipper + 30” lanyard with 1” Velcro patch for versatile fastening
*Vector Wetsuits are entirely legal under the new USAT rules and are WTC legal (depending on water temperatures).
***Always be prepared for a non-wetsuit swim.***
Nothing Else Comes Close Review by Triton
Quality Price Value
O....M.....G.....Wear it, and you'll feel like the sleekest, most *powerful* shark in the Great Tri[athlon] Ocean.
Test it, and you'll forget any doubts you ever had. Warm enough for cold weather swims, yet gives complete ambulatory range of motion at all joint vertices. Buoyancy that propels leg thrust and arm pull without any sense of
"floatiness" or muscle fatigue-causing impediment. Drag coefficient so drastically reduced you can feel the seconds peeling away from your time *while swimming*.
Own it, and you'll never look at another tri fullsuit again. Goodbye, Freak of Nature....for myself at least, from now on Xterra or nothing. (Posted on 6/13/14)
Vector Pro is BEST VALUE Triathlon Wetsuit Review by Coach Michael Collins (Multisports Orange County)
Quality Price Value
I have raced in many wetsuits over the 30 years I have been competing in triathlons and without a doubt feel the XTERRA Vector Pro is the best suit out there for the money. I do time trial tests in wetsuits and find the Vector Pro gives me the fastest time with less fatigue even compared to much more expensive suits. The $1,000+ suits are over-engineered and just have more potential for breakdown in a shorter amount of time. A fast wetsuit needs to keep your body rigid while still having enough mobility in the moving parts (shoulders & arms). I feel the Vector Pro has the perfect balance of the two. (Posted on 2/26/14)
The best Review by Ray
Quality Price Value
I am a triathlon coach and I found this suit to be comfortable, warm, fast and durable. I use it for coaching, training and racing and it's the best. When coaching, I spend a fair amount of time in the water and I may not be swimming the whole time and I need to stay warm. This suit does the trick. I've raced in this suit and it comes off fast when I need it off. I highly recommend this suit, it's a high quality suit and worth every cent!! (Posted on 2/4/14)

Huge bang for the buck! Review by Chris
Price Value Quality
Bought this wetsuit just before 2013 USAT Age Group Nationals to gain an extra edge in the swim. I used the interactive sizing tool to pick my size, and my suit fit me perfectly. The suit is slightly constricting around the shoulder, but my form adjusted quickly. The buoyancy in the legs is unbelievable! I've always been a weak kicker, and I bested my previous Olympic-distance PR by almost 10 seconds/100m with the suit. One point of caution: Be careful with long fingernails! I scratched the foam in a couple of places with mine. (Posted on 8/27/13)
Excellent choice! Review by Ray
Price Value Quality
I purchased the Vector Pro fullsuit wetsuit not expecting a big change from my last wetsuit. I was totally mistaken. The Vector Pro made me feel like a pro when I slid into it and wore it at my first triathlon this year.
I highly recommend this wetsuit- whether you are a novice or have done 1000 triathlons.
