The draw: Athletic fit and snug cuffs keeps water out

Touted as a wetsuit for the elite- level triathlete, the Phantom definitely has a “performance fit” best suited for ultra-athletic physiques. The snug cuffs around the wrists and ankles can make for a more difficult entry and exit, but once on, the Phantom keeps water out and provides excellent range of motion in the shoulders. One differentiating feature is the internal supportive belt that wraps around the core, a reminder to maintain forceful hip rotation. Although the reverse zipper requires a friend to close, zipping out is fast.
