    When you're wearing a Tracer Light, you're getting one of the most dynamic technical suits on the market.


    • FINA approved.
    • Tracer Stress-Point Reinforcement: All stress points along the suit are reinforced with micro-stitch tacking to ensure suit integrity even under extreme strains.
    • Tracer Range of Motion (ROM) Straps: Stitched and firmly reinforced eight times for a sturdy hold that won't split, allowing for fluidity and explosiveness.
    • Tracer Power Mesh: Liner is made from .4mm Poly micro-mesh, increasing the specific strength of the suit by a dramatic factor without escalating weight.
    • Tracer Pattern: Muscle mapping seams fit along the contours of the body to provide superior fit and reduce drag.
    • Tracer Four-Way Lock Seams: 18 stitch-per-inch seams are incredibly durable, low-profile, and offer superior range of motion (ROM).
    • Tracer Fabric: Shell and lining features a lightweight, hydrophobic and quick-drying fabrication. Woven with a powerful micro-filament, it has enhanced stretch properties and memory retention to promote longevity and form-fit.
    • Tracer Compression Panels: Lock in the core with up to 25% increase in zoned compression vs. a typical Lycra® suit.
    • Tracer Bonding: Smooth, flat-bonded seams outline the suit to create a stitchles design that provides a fluid, drag-reducing fit.


    • 79% Nylon / 21% LYCRA® Fiber.

  • 7/23/2015 Make Sure You Want Long

    3 Review Stars By LoriH

    Great light material.  Really didn't need a long but a regular length was not available.  The extra length made the suit a little baggy (extra material) in the torso.  Would order this suit again but in a regular length.

  • 7/18/2013 BEST SUIT EVER

    5 Review Stars By Eliza

    I wore this suits in all my meets. It is super light weight and fits like a second skin. Im a breastroker and i love how it glides me through the water. It is super durable also. I wore it for over 25 swims and to almost 10 different meets where i am sitting in the suit for over 6 hours straight. This suit is better than the $300 plus suits! It doesn't stretch out at all and fits true to size. It also looks professional. i HIGHLY recommend this suit to anyone!

  • 2/14/2015 Good Suit

    4 Review Stars By SwimDadVa

    This is a good suit especially for the money.  It is a nice looking suit too. My daughter has had this suit for  about 6 months and it has been through two championship type meets.  She normally wears a 28 practice suit.  We bought her a size 24 in this suit. Her most recent meet in January she dropped a bunch of time wearing this suit. I think it is worth the money especially compared to some of the $300-$400 suits.

    Ordered for my daughter championship meet. Worked so well it is going to cost me 700 more dollars to send her to Nationals. Two thumbs up.

  • 11/10/2014 Not long lasting

    4 Review Stars By Kayla's Dad

    We did have to send back her 28 for a 28 Long. My swimmer wore this for 4 meets (in 2 seasons) and before the 4th the elastic was fraying in her hip & tummy areas.  I won't be reordering this one.

  • 2/12/2013 Not a great fit

    3 Review Stars By Suzanne

    I bought the suit following the sizing guidelines exactly.  While the suit fit great from the waist down, there was so much gap at the shoulder straps and in the chest, it would have been worse to wear this suit than a regular suit.  On a plus, Swim Outlet!  Such great service, the return was handled with no problems.

  • 10/17/2014 Bought 3 sized smaller, but

    3 Review Stars By SWMER

    I did as the review says, bought 3 sizes smaller.  Took about 15 minutes with slide to get into.  After four events during the 200 Backstroke (World Senior Games) each turn the suit filled, to the waist, with water.  No way for water to escape, the suit became a drag suit.  I have use this suit before when I was heavier (larger size) and had no trouble.  I lost 50 lbs. and bought a way smaller suit and thought I would not have any problems.  I guess this is not for skinny women.  My breast fell out even though I had them taped in also.  You need to need to be flat chested!

  • 6/23/2010 Thumbs Down

    1 Review Stars By Mom

    I know the size charts are not perfect and I even got a size smaller than my daughter usually wears.  If you are not the exact size the size chart recommends forget this suit.  My daughter put this suit on and it seemed okay.  She tried it in our home pool and she didn't have any problem with it.  We took it to a meet and found out that water just runs through it.  She had a 400m freestyle to swim and normally this is one of her best events and her time was not so good.  My first thought was she was just having a bad day.   When she came up to the stands to talk to me after the race she told me she could feel the water running through it while she was racing.  She felt like she was dragging all the water with her.  I had someone else test it out who is a lot taller than my daughter and she too thought the same thing.  The suite seemed to fit okay but when you use it for a real swim the suit took on water.  Not an ideal thing to have happen in a race.


  • 7/30/2014 love the suit

    5 Review Stars By swimmom

    I purchased this for my 10 yr old daughter as a birthday present.  She loves it. The fit was spot on. We got a 22, she is about 54 inches tall and 75 lbs.  She has dropped time in almost all her races and most important she feels fast !  We tried 2 others but the quality of this suit was much better.

  • 2/20/2013 Suit runs big, especially on top.

    4 Review Stars By Jenni

    This suit was purchased for HS district meet. I have not worn a technical suit of any manufacturer so I used the sizing charts. I am 5"9" and have a muscular body frame so went with a size 36 based on my measurements. My competition tank suit is also a size 36. Although the thighs, bottom, and belly fit snuglgly (as it should), the bust area was too big. Water easily enter when diving in and on turns. I wish the suit was tighter in this area. Given this, I liked the suit and may purchase it again but in a 34 or even 32. Since it appeared to have helped since I cut time in all of my swims, I plan to wear it for the state meet later this week.
