  • 10/27/2020 Super comfy Swim westsuit

    5 Review stars By mountain lake swimmer

    It is very floaty, which takes some getting used to if you already naturally swim fairly high in the water. (It makes you faster) Wear the provided fabric booties on your feet to put it on even if you feel ridiculous... It helps get the suit to sit higher up on your hips and makes it easier to pull on the rest of the way. It is super flexible in the shoulders, I can't feel any resistance....sort of amazing! All in all it works great, keeps me warm in 50+ water, where my face hurts it is so cold. The first time I wore it I sort of panicked a little as it is tight and feels slightly constricting. I think I didn't have it pulled up high enough on my hips so the torso felt short. Which I fixed the second time I wore it and it was much better. Each time I have worn it since it just feels better and better and stretchier. Like it is conforming to me perfectly. Get it situated properly before diving in, as it's so tight that you can't adjust it once there is water in there. It gets all suction-y and sticks to you. I love it. I m so glad I have it. My swimming season just got extended by a few months.

  • 4/22/2020 Excellent functionality

    4 Review stars By Susie

    The combination of freedom of movement and enhanced buoyancy are excellent. The lift from the lower back through the upper legs is so great that it negates much of the need to use proper form.
    The fit is what the buyer should expect it to be - tight. Particularly on the first use, it will be difficult to put on. If it isn’t essentially skin tight, it will loosen with use to the point of creating folds. These suits can only fit a small range of body size, even with the highest grade materials, which the Cat5 certainly has.
    Most of the negative reviews relate to fit, which isn’t a useful reflection of the product’s function, and that’s unfortunate. We have found one area that could use improvement, and that’s the neck closure. The Velcro can directly contact your skin.

  • 4/14/2020 Perfect suits

    5 Review stars By Betty L.

    All pools have been closed, so had to swim in the ocean.
    Bought two Cat 5 suits: 1 size S/M for 5'2", 120lb. 1 size XS for 5', 95lb.
    They both fit fine. it does take time for a first-timer to get used to putting them on.
    But did they keep us warm in the 14C (57F) water!

  • 4/10/2020 Meets my needs during Coronavirus shut down

    5 Review stars By Tricia

    I normally don’t swim in a wetsuit, but while pools are Closed, it allows me to eighteen my swims in 9C water. I have a nasty chafe on my neck, but that’s salt water for you. Shoulder mobility is good,

  • 4/4/2020 one question, how do you get your hands and feet out of the sleeves and legs???

    1 Review stars By Dottie Jakobsen

    seriously, I spent half an hour yanking on the arms to get my hands out of the wetsuit after swimming!
    how do you do this without the intensely painful struggle?

    Suit fits well otherwise... please respond
