Hi everyone;
I have an Xterra Vortex 4 Sleeveless wetsuit, which seems like a pretty common one from looking around at races.

My pull strap during the swim ends up over my shoulder and rubbing under my armpit several times. There isn't a velcro tab to hold it in place. Does this happen to anyone else?

Even though the strap doesn't have velcro on it, you should still be able to secure it in the velcro for the neck fastener. Just put the end in there and close the neck velcro. If that doesn't work, maybe put the end in the arm hold by your shoulder blade? That might rub as well so try it before a race.

Doh. Should have thought of that. I was thinking I would have to wrap it around the neck velcro several times to hold it, then I'd never get it undone. But just a single loop should do it. Thanks!

Iron distance, overheating and cramping in a fullsuit. Will a sleeveless or shorty wetsuit alleviate my cramping for this distance?

I'm doing my first tri Saturday. It starts at 7 AM and the forecast is calling for a high of 82 (air temp). Do I need to rush out and get a wetsuit?

This is a 'first impressions' review of the Fit2Race Sockeye Fullsuit. From a first wetsuit point-of-view, I was able to dramatically improve my pace over non-wetsuit swims.
