My first long sleeve wet suit

I have owned 2 Zoot sleeveless wet suits this is my first long sleeve. I do 4 or 5 sprint triathlons each year. The Wave 3 is a fantastic wet suit. It is engineered it a way that enables it to go on and off easily while providing superior flotation for fast swimming. A card that comes with the suit illustrates the location and thickness of numerous panels that enable this. I previously used sleeveless Zoot for upper body swim mobility. The Wave 3 has perfect upper body mobility achieved with under arm gussets and thinner material where flotation is not a factor. I highly recommend this wetsuit.

I freaking love this suit

I upgraded from a sleeveless from another brand and wow. This suit is a lot warmer and is faster. Money well spent.

Awesome Suit

The fit was very accurate. Im about 5'10" and 190lbs and the large is a great fit. Im also a large in their tri kits (which are a little on the tight size, but the suit is perfect).

I haven't had any rubbing that required me to start using body glide, and removing the suit was surprisingly easy with the different materials. In 69 degree water, I was surprisingly warm and the suit seals really well. It also was not as much of an increase in work to swim in the suit as I thought it would be.

Basically, its an awesome suit, has a great fit and feel and is perfect in the water. I would definitely buy this one again.

Excellent fit

I found the fit was accurate. Comfortable to breath in. Best wetsuit I've tried yet personally. I tried the roka and it was tighter on the chest for me and not as comfortable.

Crushed it

I’ve tried 5 different suits similar to this one (orca sonar, 2xu, etc) and this is by far THE BEST. Most flexible in the shoulders as well as most buoyant in the hips. They really crushed it with this suit!!
