Goes on and off as good as any other wetsuit. The liner can help it slip off the foot a little easier, though it still tends to stick.

(5)

This suit is very durable, it has been used for 5 OW seasons, left in my car on hot days, hung in a garage, thrown on the floor of my car, and generally beaten up, and there is not a single cut, tear, or split seam. It still looks new.

(5)

The phone support folks helped me choose my size over the phone, based on height/weight and general body shape as I described it to them. It fit well when it arrived, but I could have easily sent it back, and kept doing so, until I got the right fit.

(4)

This wetsuit is as comfortable as any I've tried on. It advertises the liner as being soft and stretchable in multiple directions, which gives it a high comfort rating. The neck has a soft sheet under the velcro strap that prevents most chaffing.

(4)

A little more pricey than other vendor offerings, but the customer service, guarantee of fit, quality of the product make this a good purchase. Also, they have end of year clearance sales often 50% off - you can get a $200 suit for $99.

(4)

Standard black suit w/ Vortex icon.

(5)

Excellent - both in person (at tri expos) and on the phone.

(5)

Provides great buoyancy. Feels slick in the water. No restriction of arm motion during stroke.

Durablity, comfortable lining, customer service

A bit thicker and heavier than some competitors - good to have extra thickness in colder water, but in warmer water a thinner suit might be a little better.
