    Feels true to size

    Very nice product.  Only negative is a slight chaffing on the left side of my neck.  I think a slight trimming of the velcro strap should resolve this issue.

    Feels too small

    Delivery was in two days. Nice. I started to try the suit on it was very tight. I could not get it all the way on and didn't even try. It was too tight. I called you guys up and you gave me a Return Authorization, I sent it back a little over a week and a half ago and am still waiting for my refund. I want the same suit in a size 6, I was told that it was out of stock. So now I am waiting for an email from you to let me know that it has come in.

    I ordered this wetsuit on a Tuesday for a triathlon on the weekend, the free 2 day shipping came in less than 2 so I could try the suit.  I love this wetsuit!  It was pretty tough to get on the first time, but the 3rd time was much easier.  It is awesome in the water, no binding, no tugging, no chafing.  I used it this morning in a tri, couldn't even feel the cold water, and the suit works awesome.  Other guys were complaining about neck and armpit chafing, and were lathering up with body glide.  I have swam in the S5 twice and had no problems with this.  It fits so well and is very comfortable.  I have never used a wetsuit, so I thought it would be hard to get used to, not at all!  Loved it right away, glad I got this one, I can't imagine what could be better with a super expensive suit, this one has everything and is comfy!

    This is the first wetsuit I've purchased... ever. I've rented & borrowed suits in the past for triathlons, but needed to get my own this year as I'm doing man first Ironman. The size chart was incredibly accurate (I'm a medium-tall) as the suit fits me GREAT... it's buoyant, it's flexible and it's comfortably snug... no leaking or chaffing issues. I'd highly recommend this suit, and at under $250 it's a great value!

ABOUT THIS BRAND

Orca

In 1992, Scott Unsworth, a former New Zealand age-group triathlon champion, stopped competing due to a chronic back injury. Through his experience working as a swim coach, and from his first-hand experience in triathlon competition, Scott saw that the wetsuits being used by triathletes were completely inadequate for swimming, and he started a company called Performance Speedsuits Ltd.

Scott's early designs were directly inspired by his personal experience with the demands of the sport, and to this day Orca's designs and features are the direct result of working with professional athletes. In the five short years since Orca was launched in 1995 the brand was able to firmly establish itself as a favorite among the world's elite triathletes, and at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia two thirds of all triathlon competitors wore Orca Speedsuits in the swim leg of the event.

Orca products continue to be designed by and tested on athletes, not computer models, so you can be sure that the designs, materials and production techniques that go into Orca's championship-winning suits are always on the cutting edge.
