Aqua Sphere Challenger


$350, Swimoutlet.com

The draw: A quick escape

Born in Italy, Aqua Sphere products have a Euro-cool look about them, and this maroon-accented suit is no exception. With neutral buoyancy and stretchy 2mm sleeves, the Challenger is a good pick for swimmers who want a wetsuit for warmth, not to alter their stroke or pop them up in the water. It really shines in T1 where it sheds in seconds.
