"I like it."JoshR


Easy to put on. Slip on the Bibjohn, then put on the pull over.


Well put together


The Black Pearl comes as a 2 piece suit so you can buy a seperate size for the bibjohn and for the pullover. This was the main reason I bought it. My upper body needed a size 4 and my lower body needed a size 6 so it worked perfectly.


As comfortable as a wetsuit can be I would say.


Has a near solid black color, which I am a fan of.


The zipper could be an issue. The zipper pulls down to your waist to secure it and to unzip it you have to pull it up, which can be awkward while running in T1. I have only used it in 1 race so far, Boise 70.3, and I struggled for a little bit to unzip it fully, I got it a few inches up and then just pulled the pullover over my head without it being fully unzipped. This worked but I could see it being an issue if T1 is short.

I love the 2 piece design. I have much larger legs proportionally than my upper body and this allows me to pick 2 different sizes.

The zipper can be awkward to grab since it zips down. I have found that I don't have to unzip it all the way to get the top off but it is still a bit frustrating.
