      First wet suit

      I swam my first tri a few days ago. I'm male, 5' 11" 170lb and my wife says I have a longer torso, so the medium long fit me well. I loved the extra buoyancy - barely had to kick during the swim :) and really gave me some more confidence and ease my nerves. I found that I really had to pay attention to pull the bottom of the suit up as far as it was comfortable so that it didn't pinch my neck too much - my fault though for not knowing how to wear it at first. Swam in 63°F Colorado lake water and the sleeveless was just fine.

      Smooth is Fast

      Doing my first Ironman70.3 and I hate being cold when swimming so naturally getting a wetsuit was a no brainer. Size chart worked easy and was accurate to the fit I want/needed. It felt so smooth in the water, like a knife through butter. They offered a great return policy and even a trial to make sure I liked it. Price point was great for my budget. Glad to support a local San Diego company ! Already recommended it to my friends !

      Great suit!

      Bought for my 1st triathlon (70.3) in 30+ years. Bought med/large (I'm 5'11, 165 lbs) and it's a perfect fit... I'm a little broader through the chest so zipping up by myself can be a bit of a struggle but doable... once on it fits like a 2nd skin with plenty of flexibility in the arms, etc. I'm really happy with this suit!
