    Feels true to size

    I recommend sticking with the sizing charts on this one. I am 6"2"' and weigh 175 lb and although I could fit into a size 28, it was too restrictive to be beneficial so I went with the suggested size 30. (And I wear a 28 practice suit). So I guess the point I am trying to make is don't auto-size down from your normal suit size.
    very tight, sturdy, compressive suit, good coverage and reaches all the way to right above the knee. The suit is comfortable for hours of wear but there are two points of irritation close to the waist if you wear the suit long enough.
    I wore this suit to 3 championship high school meets, all lasting approximately 4 hours. I swam 4 races at the first meet, 3 the second, and 2 the third. The suit seemed to hold up rather well (much more impressive than my previous fsII) The water repellent properties seemed to wear off after the first meet although it continued to dry quickly afterwords. At the end of the third meet I noticed that the seams on the inside of the leg started to fray a little bit but it did not seem to hinder the performance of the suit. I think I could use this suit for a couple more meets before it is worn out.
    in the water:
    This suit feels great. No water enters the suit. The fabric clings to you and does not slide. I have great power return off of the wall and feel very light in the water.
    Awesome suit, looks amazing, feels awesome and it is just an excellent product. I felt great walking up to the blocks, and it certainly gives a little confidence boost. I did drop time using this suit but I wont correlate swimwear to time drops.
    I hope this review was helpful!

    Feels true to size

    When I first got the suit, I thought it was the wrong size.  I've never had a suit so hard to put on.  But once it's on, it feels good and performs well.  I used it at one meet so far and had three of four personal bests.  Very streamlined and a fast suit!!

    Bought this same suit again.  It outlasted our expectations.  It was worn for a full championship meet with a lot of distance swims and still had some wear in it for 2 more long meet weekends.  Like the compression and water repellant qualities.  Worn one size smaller than practice suit for a good fit.

    Feels true to size

    I bought the TYR AP12 Jammer for my 13 year old son to use at Junior Mid State competition.  This was his first year swimming.  In the mid state he improved almost 8 seconds in his 100 IM and 3 seconds in his 100 breast stroke PB placing 3rd in breast.  The suit definately contributed to his improvements.  

    His jammer is a size 30.  I purchased the 28 after reading other reviews.  We probably would've been happier with the 30.  Since he hadn't used a speed suit before I was concerned about how it would feel for breaststroke but even for breast it helped.  He said he even felt faster.   Based on his performance I would definately recommend this suit.

    Feels true to size

    163lbs, 6"1", 46 years old masters swimmer with a total of 4.5 years experience swimming, and 3 years of competitive swimming experience. Suit is shorter than the knee covering length the picture implies. Have just under a 31" waist and bought the size 32" (slightly larger to sacrifice compression for longevity because I know you can tear a suit up just putting it on), it was still very compressed and tight, and covered from 3" below belly button to 2 to 3" above kneecap top. A perfect fit for me. Although I am better trained than last lear, the suit did seem to help - ALOT.
    SCM50fr old PB was 31.09.  Did 28.59 in this suit, thats 2.5 seconds in 50 free!.

    Feels too small

    Great & awesome item, the only reason for 4 stars rating is because it feels to small, so you seriously consider a bigger size than normally use.

    Feels too small

    This is a great suit. My son dropped a couple seconds in all his races when he wore it the first time. It is smaller than the other technical suits he has had in the past. We ended up with one size smaller than his practice suit for the best fit. Normally we go two sizes down, but that wouldn't fit at all.

    Feels too big

    Purchased this product for regional champs.   the first event, the rear of the suit opened up and kept water in.  I saw this on another review of this same suit.  And after the first event the suit was not form fitting as it was the rear was actually sagging and the legs expanded. I had to go back to my old suit as this one didn't perform as expected.

    Feels true to size

    On first race dropped over 4 seconds on my 400 Free at AG Champs.  I put true to size as I wear a 24 practice suit, but would recommend going down one size, but this is not available in this suit.  It did slightly bag in the bottom.  Suit is comfortable to wear and looks awesome on deck to show off too.  Still 7 more swims to go this weekend, so we will see.  However, I feel confident this suit will perform well.

Founded in Southern California in 1985, TYR™ has since developed a reputation for high-quality products and equipment. TYR competition swimwear and triathlon gear have been a dominant force in their respective industries. The company is also known for its TYR goggles, swim apparel, triathlon wetsuits and a wide variety of swimming equipment.

TYR was the first company to introduce a pair of goggles designed to fit a woman's face (the TYR T-72). TYR was also responsible for the famous red bathing suits featured on the hit television series "Baywatch." TYR consults with current and former athletes when developing its products. Swimmers know that TYR is a leader in swimsuits, warm-up suits, and swim training equipment. The TYR Tracer Series is one of the most advanced technical suit lines on the market. The TYR Hurricane wetsuits and the TYR Torque collections include top-of-the-line suits for the competitive swimmer.

TYR has also moved into competitive running equipment. From running shirts to shorts, its apparel is designed with the runner in mind. Built with moisture wicking fabric and antimicrobial material, TYR running apparel is designed to give the athlete the most comfortable, dry clothing on the market.

The name "TYR" is derived from the Norse god of warriors, who is said to have embodied victory and glory. Much the same can be said about the athletes who started TYR. Executive Vice President, Steve Furniss, was an Olympian who competed in the 1972 and 1976 Summer Games, and captained the 76th U.S. Olympic Swim Team.
