2012 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Wetsuits

19 Rogue $650

Durable, fast, and reasonably priced for a high-quality wetsuit, this racing suit is capable of withstanding the rigors of regular open-water training swims. The elbow elevator helps improve the catch stroke phase by guiding the forearm into a vertical position. Be sure to firmly lock down the Velcro around the neck; otherwise it can come undone. With a firm fit, the collar keeps the interior chest ultra-dry. Another big selling feature: the five-year warranty. Nineteenwetsuits.com
