    I was amazed how quick the suit dried after leaving the water.  I was also suprised about no chaffing during the 3 legs.  It is a great product and I am extremely satisfied with the purchase.

    I use the TRI Suit for swim workouts several times a week.
    The suit feels great and fits well.
    It looks great and I have no negative comments.

    Loved it, my only ask would be to change the side pockets to have overlapping flap so I can carry some items such as gels and not have load during transition from swim to bike,..other than that, it's a great product

    I have used it for riding and running, feels great, skin tight fit (small im 5'6" 140ish) , the pockets help store gu ect. The only reason didn't give it 5 stars is because the invisipad that it talks about on the summery is actually a double layer of fabric witg what i believe to be felt to help with moisture. I thought it was suppost to be a pad for riding bikes, it provides a small amount of pading and there is not any room to wear shorts underneath. I purchased the 2012 model.

    I have always been a big fan of DeSoto! They continue to provide a great roduct! My only complaint about this suit is there is no elastic around the bottom of the legs. When the suit gets wet the edges no longer grip my quads and are loose giving the appearance of an overly stretched suit. Once dried they shrink back and grip again! Overall this is a great product this suit has great compression and fearures and I recommend this product!

    I was lured into doing the swimming leg of an Ironman 70.3 and I had no idea about the sport at all. I was heavily advised to get a suit so after some research I found this one. Ordering was a breeze. For those looking, I am 5'9 and 175 pounds and bought the suit size L. Fits like a glove. Supercomfortable. I shed a few seconds per 100mt in the pool. The padding for the bikers seems about right and does not interfere at all with my swimming. It says that is not designed for long term use in a chlorinated pool but that is all I have been doing so far for trainning as is holding great. Surprisingly the pockets do not collect water at all so no holding back. My wife thinks is hillarious how I look so if it bothers you to feel and see yourself almost down to the skin out in the open..... well train more or wear a T shirt I guess.

    Feels too small

    Sadly, thought the piece was beautiful and true to its claims, i received the wrong size, guess not due to Swim Outlet, but who may have labeled a 'large" an "extra large" and the suit was a large, just too tight!!.... was hoping to use it at a TRI that Sunday (received on thursday), but had to purchase one locally and pay a few dollars more. still will continue to purchase from SwimOutlet......

    I have several of these suits and they all look great and function well. Major plus is pockets for your stuff. Never yet have any chafing problems to report with these suits. Would I purchase another of the same? You bet Desoto makes a great product.

    I love these suits especially here in the Arizona desert. My main use is mostly for riding but you do stay cool when the weather gets warm.Fit is a little tight to start but you get use to that. And a major plus is all of the pockets for all your stuff.

The founders of DeSoto are Emilio De Soto and Dan Neyenhuis. Emilio De Soto is a triathlete who is racing in his 27th consecutive season of triathlon competition. He is also fully immersed in his athletic lifestyle as a fitness trainer and coach. Dan Neyenhuis is an age-grouper triathlete who has been helicopter skiing for 20 years. Together, they created a company that designs cutting edge triathlon gear for triathletes, by triathletes.

DeSoto gear is designed to enhance performance in each leg of the race. The founders created the first mesh running cap, zippered tri tops, pocketed tri shorts, transition packs, tri suits, and tri shorts with discreet pads for cycling.

One of their other achievements was creating the DeSoto T1 triathlon wetsuit that is two pieces instead of one. The DeSoto T1 triathlon wetsuit was designed to make a better fit for triathletes, and each year, more DeSoto tri tops and DeSoto tri shorts are being added to the line. DeSoto is still the only company in the world that makes a two-piece triathlon wetsuit.
