Hello:
I'm looking for your opinions (not trolling). I'm hoping to convince my wife tonight to allow me to get a Tri wetsuit and am wracking my brain at which to get. I've seen some of the threads regarding both of these products, but still need your assistance.

I've got it locked down to the following two due to price and deadline, and a couple of features:

1) Xterra Vengeance Full - Vengeance Fullsuit— Performance and Flexibility (Specs- 5mm, 3mm, 1.5mm Yamamoto #39 rubber/ V-Span Inner body Liner/ Flex-Span arm and shoulder Liner/ Loc Flex Collar/ Hydro Slide Zipper/ Glued & Blind Stitched Seams/ Phase 1 Catch Panel). The Vengeance offers performance and flexibility that are second only to the Vector Pro2. It is designed to perform at or above the level of any other high-end suit for a fraction of the cost. It uses Yamamoto’s #39 rubber on the exterior, which like Nano SCS is very soft and flexible, so the suit is extremely comfortable and provides a very high range of motion. It also uses our exclusive V-Span inside liner throughout the body, and the Flex Span liner in the shoulders and arms just like the Vector Pro2. The Vengeance is available in men’s and women’s specific sizes. Price— $395.
Warranty info: http://www.xterrawetsuitspro.com/Warranty.html(covers 2 years)

2). Pro Motion Fluid Drive -

Also, is the 10% discount good for free members of BT, or does the discount apply only to paid members?

Thanks all and happy training!

How's the head feeling Wink

Why not look condisder the Power Glide suit for $289 if your looking at Promotion.  I have the PG sleevless with the Green and my wife said I'm easy to spot in it.

I have my third Promotion wetsuit and love it. I think they are a great value...call and talk with them to help them guide you on fit. The women's version run generous.

I'm on my third as I lost weight and first two were to big.

There is another thread here somewhere about getting Xterra wetsuits 50% off.  Use the promotion code mesp1 when you order online.  Works like a charm!  I just received my Vector2 and only paid about $265 (normally $500)!  But the code only lasts until tomorrow (the 11th).

I took in account of all the responses, weighed in the information, and purchased the Pro Motion Fluid Full due to cost, savings code, and better warranty. Additionally, the Pro Motion had a little bit more information on their features. I didn't get the Power Glide due to cost.

Thanks to all that responded.
