  • 6/6/2010 Completed first TRI - suit worked great

    4 Review Stars By DEW

    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.

    4 Review Stars By Scott D.

    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

    4 Review Stars By .

    Sizes run small. And material doesn't seem to have a comfortable stretch to it. But that may loosen up as I wear into it. The Suit looks amazing though and I am excited to wear it upcoming races.

  • 3/22/2013 Amazing!

    4 Review Stars By Andre

    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.

  • 7/11/2012 Awesome Tri Suit

    4 Review Stars By John D.

    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!

  • 6/20/2011 Tight in the legs, But great once in it

    4 Review Stars By Nice Tri

    This suit once you are in it, is great. The compression on the legs is perfect for long durations. The pockets in the back are tight and don't fill up with water during the swim. A bit expensive. Of all my tri suits, I wear this one the most.

    My only complaint is the legs are to small for each size. I first tried a med. and there was no way i would fit my legs in. Returned that for a Lg which fits better but a little more snug than would expect. I have other compression clothes that fit a bit better. I'm 5'-10", 179lbs, 33waist, 39chest, 22leg. Hope this helps.

    Once you start your swim, ride or run you will notice the support from the compression. It definatly helps.

  • 5/9/2012 Great suit. Supercomfortable

    5 Review Stars By Not Ironman Just swimmer

    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.

    5 Review Stars By Beer Man

    Did my first Tri yesterday in the one piece suit.  No drag on the swim, comfortable on the bike and great for  the run.  No chafe anywhere!  Pockets on shorts part were good in that I didn't lose anything out of them.  I'm 6'1", 175 lbs and large fits great.
