Posted By: lynneThis is my first wetsuit. I bought it on recommendation of a friend who is a serious triathlete and trains in the full sleeve sonar, which she has had for 10+ years. I am not a triathlete, just a swimmer. I have done 6 swims in it, ranging from 60F to 70F, longest being about 1 hour 20 minutes. I was warm but never too warm. The flotation and core rigidity this gives me is great training for my core - I have noticed the benefits in improved speed, power and endurance in the lake, and better body position even when i am in the pool without the suit. The more I wear it, the better it feels. I can backstroke in it but breaststroke is a little more work. I was on the bubble with sizing due to wide upper body and sized up to the WL. I'm glad I did. I get barely any water in the suit and it's easy to get on and off by myself. The neck is very comfortable and secure but i did get a little chafing on my right arm from the ridge on the armhole. Nothing a little Glide didn't cure. Highly recommend this wetsuit.
