Just wanted to give you feedback from the UK. Purchased a vector pro a few months ago and I am delighted with the suit. Fastest swim split at iron distance by 3 mins over my other top end suits. It is a bit delicate but I can live with that. My local sea swim temperatures are about 11 deg C. Yes 11! I am near Scotland. This is a warm suit. Will be buying another.
I bought this wet suit december 24 th 2020 and its now june 1st 2021 and i've used it on 43 dives as a spear fisherman and it is hands down the best wetsuit ive ever used it doesn't offer the absolute best flexibility but it makes up for it in comfort you almost forget your even wearing it i normally wear a Roka Maverick MKll and this wetsuit puts up a fight against the maverick so whatever your swimming sport maybe this wetsuit works amazing i use it for Scuba/Spearfishing/freediving. AMAZING PRODUCT THE STAFF AT XTERRA ARE AMAZING
I have been happily wearing a Men's Volt fullsuit (3/2/1.5 mm thick), but with the water temperature dropping, decided to try the Vector Pro (5/3/1.5). It is fantastic! It feels as flexible and as comfortable as the thinner suit, not stiff like many thicker suits. I felt I was in a warm embrace throughout my swim. Also, the buoyancy felt natural, not awkward as in many wetsuits. Love it!!
Got the Vector Pro suit at the Xterra outlet site, and I soaked and dried as recommended prior to donning for size. Fit well, tighter than my Orca brand wet suit which is 4 years old. Tried it out in 2 sessions of open water swimming. Very happy with its performance. Hard to judge if it was any faster than my older Orca, but it fitting much tighter helped keep out the excess water I was feeling on my back with my older suit. No significant arm restriction. The legs are definitely longer than my previous Orca suit, and the arms are slightly longer, which helps with buoyancy but makes it harder to get the suit on and off. Especially taking off, working the legs down. In the 2 open water swim donning/removing after cycle, I put 2 small nicks in the neoprene on the lower legs. Not all the way through, and I will now try patching with the supplied glue. You really have to watch that your nails aren't nicking the rubber! I am 170# and 6'3" and the Medium Long fits me. I suggest using wet suit lube to help in taking the suit off in a triathlon transition (or any time). I used plastic bags to help with the donning, on my hands and feet.
