"I was disappointed in the quality of this suit. Orca is one of the more well-known tri wetsuit manufacturers, and I would have expected a higher quality product. The suit performed well, and I would have been happy with it if construction quality were better."jsnowash


I was somewhat disappointed in the construction of this suit. There were several points on the suit where the seams were not well glued, and were coming apart. This became more pronounced over time.


Wetsuit fit is, of course, highly personal. This suit fits well for me. It is somewhat tight at the wrists. Rather than having difficulty getting it over my ankles, like with some suits, I have actually had trouble getting the sleeves over my hands from time to time!


The suit is comfortable.


As stated above, there has been trouble with the seams coming apart. The neoprene velcro tab at the eventually came off, making the suit essentially unusable.


Looks as good as any tri wetsuit....


I felt my swim performance was good in this suit as long as I was able to use it.

Good bouancy, good fit.

Poor quality construction, too tight at the wrists.
