  • 8/11/2015 Awesome suit!

    5 Review Stars By George

    This is a really great tech suit! This was my first technical suit so I didn't really know what to expect, but it sure didn't disappoint. It's got really good compression and rock solid water repellency. It also holds up pretty long. I used it for two championship meets (1 scy and 1 lcm) for both prelims and finals; (a total of 27 races plus warm ups), and it's still got a little bit of juice left. When it started to get loose at the waist I pulled it up to my belly button and really hammered down on the drawstrings and it held up really good during my 200 meter backstroke. I highly recommend this suit you should really try it out

    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.

  • 7/30/2015 Not the best for long distance

    1 Review Stars By R.$mith straight from the trap

    I wore this suit for senior state for my 800. There were some problems I had with it, first the waist was very small and it took a while to get on because of the size of my legs,
    Second was that it felt very restrictive just walking around I had the feeling that if I tried to stretch I was going to rip the suit, third I had almost no kick because of how restrictive it was making me pull for almost the whole 800 meters. I was better off swimming in a practice suit in my opinion. I ended up feeling faster with my worn out lzr for the other events I swam

    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.

    Appears to go over the knee caps in the photo but it doesn't and that's a good thing because hammers that go below the knee cap are banned by Dina from most swimming competitions ie. rec teams, high school teams and USA swim teams

  • 2/18/2014 Great suit

    5 Review Stars By lane shark

    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!

  • 12/7/2012 TYR AP12 -low waist

    5 Review Stars By steve

    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!.

    This suit was amazing! I swam with it 17 times in 3 days for championships (preliminaries and finals). I qualified for eastern zones with this suit! I went a AA in the 200 yard backstroke and the 200 yard IM. This suit wasn't very difficult to get on but it still offered great mussel compression. You don't feel very fast in this suit until you see your times. But I knew it worked. I took a handful of water and  dropped  it on my leg and the water bounced off and never broke open. This is overall an amazing suit and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great suit at a great price

    5 Review Stars By nakaja

    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.

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.

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.
