Comments about Zoot Sports Men's Z Force 1.0 Wetzoot:
I bought this suit through REI after completing my first open water triathlon - I was hooked. I used another brand's sleveless suit in 65 degree water, but that was all the local shop was renting, so better than nothing. I unfortunately was unable to use the suit in a race scenario until this past weekend. Comparing the two, I would have to rate this suit at or above the same level for a much more affordable price point. In practical use, the suit keeps you at water level with no effort. the placement of thicker neoprene at key body points made it easy to rotate my arms, even with the suit being ever so slightly on the small side (I ordered a medium as i fell at the top end of the sizing chart - but am planning to improve my size so the medium should be the right side for me soon - if I can only lay off of the chocolate cookies!). my legs felt comfortable floating at or just below water surface and my times showed a drastic decrease in drag. With the same level of effort, over a 1000m swim, my 100m splits improved by 19 seconds. This could be because I have 'okay' body position without the suit, but for those of us who are not perfect in the art of swimming (and it is an art), I will take every advantage I can.
One feature I really like is the added velcro on the zip pull. it keeps the leash neatly out of the way and in an easy grab point for quick take-off.
Having used this suit only a few times, it is hard to determine if the suit will withstand long term usage, but so far, I like it.
