"The Lava Pants by XTERRA Wetsuits have definitely found a place in my training routine. With them I have been able to get a better feel with streamlining my body while being able to Incorporate my kick and rotation to hopefully initiate muscle memory. During my first use I did noticed my average time per/100m was decreased overall for 100m x10 by a good 8 seconds (my average was 1:45/100m at probably 80% effort according to my 910xt). I was able to "feel" the positioning of being streamlined and was able to better duplicate it after removing the Lava pants. I end each training session that I use the Lava pants (so far I use them for my longer sets 2x a week out of the 4x a week that I swim)with by swimming 5-10 laps without them. One of the best training products for swimming that I have purchased."elppaym

Performance

Performance is related to the value of the product, performed as described on the website for me.

Strengths

Allows you to gain a feel for proper body positioning, especially regarding proper level of hips to obtain a streamlined position. Can be used for indoor pool training, which is a plus in colder regions, and also used in OWS.

Weakness

So far no weaknesses have came to mind, one possible weakness could be relying on the product to do all your training with and becoming dependent on it.
