Orca Equip wetsuit
The Orca Equip comes highly recommended following our review by Iron Phil. His recommendation is based on it being a comfortable, easy to put on and remove, speedy to swim in wetsuit. He caveats this as long as you don’t mind striking getting into some interesting poses to manoeuvre it into the perfect position. Additionally you can cope with a zip that has a life of its own.

HUUB Aegis wetsuit
The only reason why I would change to any other wetsuit from the HUUB Aegis is its weight. I think it is a bit heavy and sometimes too much for me. I also sometimes felt a bit of discomfort through my shoulders given the thickness of the neoprene. It is a trade off for a thermal wetsuit though. For most people, If you plan to race triathlons in cold water conditions for the first time and need an affordable and durable wetsuit. I believe that the HUUB Aegis 100% should be your first choice.

Orca 3.8 wetsuit
Having been a fan of Orca triathlon wetsuits for over a decade the Orca 3.8 continues to cement this loyalty. It is an extremely comfortable wetsuit and gives a high degree of buoyancy around the core. If you are looking for a wetsuit to help you swim with a more horizontal swim position then this is a great choice. The buoyancy across the core, bum and upper thighs is fantastic. Is it the fastest wetsuit on the market? I’m not totally convinced as I feel there are quicker wetsuits but maybe that is just me getting slower! The Orca 3.8 is an incredibly comfortable highly technical wetsuit and perfect for anyone after loads of buoyancy.

HUUB Alpha wetsuit
If the Alpha fits you, then you’ll be benefiting from some quality inherited technology at a fantastic price. The HUUB Alpha feels well put together and robust. Relevant when compared to some of HUUB’s other higher end wetsuits which can be more delicate with a focus on speed. An additional quality feature is that all HUUB wetsuits are covered by a 12 month warranty and you can register your suit for an extra 6 months cover taking it to 18 months total from date of receipt.

HUUB Aerious II wetsuit
Shayne was really impressed by the HUUB Aerious II triathlon wetsuit. But also impressed with HUUB. Impressed with their other products, but more so their commitment to understanding the sport of triathlon and what is required to go fast.

Zone3 Vanquish wetsuit
The Zone3 Vanquish wetsuit is highly recommended for any swimmer that does not naturally need much help with buoyancy. Jason commented that he was not a fantastic swimmer by any means. Usually swimming around 30-32 mins for 1900m (70.3 swim). 61-64 mins for the full distance Ironman/Long course 3800m swim. The Zone3 Vanquish 2019 wetsuit allows me to swim at my best without having to worry whether or not I am actually swimming well.

Yonda Spirit wetsuit
The Yonda Spirit is a mid-range triathlon wetsuit priced at under £300 Andrew was instantly impressed by the fit and the flexibility of the wetsuit. Even more so when used in open water swimming for the first time. The key features of the Yonda wetsuit include Yamamoto neoprene which gives the wetsuit extremely good flexibility and buoyancy. Overall Andrew thought the Yonda wetsuits were easily comparable to that of the bigger brands but at a fraction of the cost.
