Well, I have been using Vector Pro for 4 1/2 years. I have been very comfortable in both my shorter as well in my longer swims in the SF Bay. Provides great support to maintain good, straight body streamline as well as offering protection from the colder winter waters.
Fit well, floated and glided beautifully! Was caught between the WXL and the MM on the sizing guide due to my height and weight—and glad I went for the WXL for the more tailored, women’s fit, as it delivered the room in the shoulders I was looking for. Little snug in the shoulders lengthwise at first, but once wet very smooth and actually plenty of room.
The vector pro is a little tough to put on the first few times. I used the old plastic bag trick and was easy. Hard to get the wetsuit off around the ankles so make sure you put body glide. Give it a chance it does stretch and much easier to take off with time. Love it so far. Was a toss up between the Vector Pro and the Vortex. Bought both and use both. No regret.
I was on the fence about buying a new wetsuit, but decided to give it a go with the sale. I like this wetsuit so much that I think it’s worth getting even without the sale. It far outperforms my prior Tri wetsuits. The thinner paneling along the arms made it easier with swim strokes and overall the suit kept the water out and kept me quite warm. The 5mm paneling definitely helps with buoyancy and made a difference in my last swim tri race; I’m usually a middle of the pack swimmer and this time I was one of the first 10 women to get out of the water. I had even caught up to the men from the prior heat (that had never happened before in my life- lol). Sure, I trained a lot but I think the wetsuit definitely helped and made a difference.
