This suit is generally great
By Deb from Houston, TX on 6/27/2016 7:22:52 AM
My son wore this suit for his finals and achieved what he wanted - the only downside is that the legs are too long and in USA Swim it is illegal to have a suit below your knees - so we had to roll it a bit which probably added time so if we didn't have to do that I am sure his time would have been even better
Awesome swimsuit at an amazing price

Last for long time if you wash it properly after each use. I'm gladly impressed with The quality of the Arena brand.
1st Arena - seems good but size up

First I buy the suits, I don't wear them...that is what my son does. 2nd he is only 12 so still growing and times will improve as he does but that being said he works hard and does benefit from a nice racing suit at the bigger meets he swims in (State, Zones, etc.). We are working through a number of suits looking for the best option for my son as he grows which may change as his body does but so far we have learned that he struggles with Speedo tech suits as it seems like they are cut too low at the waist (short inseem) for the size he needs to get over his thighs and butt. The legs seems too long for the waist size that fits him so we have opted out of further Speedo tech suit testing for now. My son has not had any puberty growth yet and is only about 5'4" and 105 pounds but while on the lean side he does have pretty good muscle in his thighs and for lack of a better term a "bubble butt" when it comes to putting these things on.We have found the TYR brand to be a really good fit and product. He likes the higher waist option and wears a 24 in the tech suits but a 28 in most any brand for practice suits and smaller meet suits (which he uses as the same thing). I did not want to go away from the TYR brand as I figured we have something that fits and works well why mess with it....I have to admit I am not a fan of the multi color crazy patterns on the higher end TYR suits though so we were using the plain black and it has been outstanding for him. In my most recent shopping for a new tech suit there was not the size (24) available I needed in black so I took the opportunity to let my son try something else. We bought this Arena suit and based on reviews decided to size up to a 26. It was a very good call as the first time we put this thing on it was quite a process that should be in some movie someplace with a 6'5" 300+ pound former football player trying to help his kid get into this silly tight racing swim suit. We were laughing while wondering if the thing would actually fit. In the end (after 10 or so minutes of the two of us pulling etc) it was on and fit extremely well. He said the thighs felt pretty tight and liked the compression and support. I told him it likely would feel different after he hit the water too. Normally it's not the best practice to wear the suit in warm ups but given the fact we wanted to make sure it would not take on a lot of water (and honestly how much effort it took totally dry to put on) I sent him to the meet wearing this thing for warm ups. He swam a very short amount of warm ups and gave me a thumbs up and a big smile. That meet ended up as a very good one with drops in every event (training was set up accordingly). We did notice the one day he wore the suit too long and he was off his times in the evening finals (there was very little gap between prelim & finals for 11/12 age group in time). The 2nd day he got out of the suit and wore his old TYR and the times were right on his prelim swims. In the end we were big fans of this Arena suit and the look is great. The steel blue is cool looking and my son felt like the suit was really good. We are now deciding what suit gets work to prelims and what suit gets work for finals at the next meet. I think he may reverse it to see how things go but his comments were he felt like the Avictor and the This suit were equally good for him. The arena is a bit lower in the waist than the high waist Avictor but has longer rise than the Speedo. Water repellancy (if that is a word) is maybe a bit better on a new Avictor but the compression is a bit better in the Arena. Over all he rated them equal and liked that he was in a cool looking suit getting compliments from everyone (since he's always in black).
