Posted By: Yves JolicoeurJust bought the Orca Sonar and love it. I am a male, 5 foot 7, 160 lbs, chest 38. Since I was visiting Miami, I stopped at TriVillage to look at triathlon wetsuits. I had never tried one on and was somewhat surprised by the feeling of tightness when you slip on a wetsuit. After trying a few different brands, models and level of quality, I opted for the Orca Sonar (size 7). I have only used it in open water on a few occasions but am very satisfied with my purchase. The feeling of tightness is gone and I find that it is easy to slip into, the fit is very good and the material very supple. The neck material is so pliable that you do not feel any friction. I was also amazed by the buoyancy it provides as I float like a cork with it. I was very impressed by the quality of the service received at TriVillage. Although I did try on multiple wetsuits, I never felt pressured to buy one in particular. Marty and Roy spent quite a few hours helping me to put on the wetsuits and answering my many questions. I really felt like their priority was not to sell me just any wetsuit, but to sell me a wetsuit that was good for ME. Thanks guys.
