      A great experience start to finish

      Good selection, great price and delivery to your door in a hot minute (well, pretty quickly anyways). Quality material, stitching etc. No issues with customs or delivery to Canada. Fits like a glove, loving the sleeveless option. Very comfortable and my first race swim was a pleasure.

      Great fit and durable

      This is my 4th suit. I keep going back to this same one. It provides great performance, it has a nice fit and it's durable. It is perfect for swimming outside in CA with the cooler mornings.

      Vortex sleeveless

      So my journey with Xterra started with me ordering a wetsuit that was too big. When I notified them about this they contacted me back right away sent the options of a full refund or an exchange. I sent the suit back to them and purchased the new suit in the right size. It arrived swiftly and fitted great. Xterra recieved their.other suit back and refunded me the money for that suit with no issues. The suit itself fits great. I swim long marathon swims and it performs great. Minimal chaffing occurs and it fits nicely on the neck. The 5mm buoyancy really helps and the 3mm back is great for movement in the water. I'm swimming 4hrs in the heat of summer right now and I am not getting over heated at all in it. Great wetsuit fairly priced and performs great. I will definitely use this company again for future items. Also their goggles are great.

      Great suit in so many ways

      The vortex was a replacement for a tiny TYR hurricane suit that I had been struggling in and out of. This suit did not disappoint in its ease of getting on and off. Full coverage keeps me warm in our 50-60 degree lake. Shoulder and leg mobility are not restricted, and the neck is non chafing. Awesome suit!
