Zoot Wahine 1 Sleeveless


$225, Swimoutlet.com

The draw: No-frills comfort

It’s tough to cut a sleeveless wetsuit right so that water doesn’t pour through the arms and drag swimmers down, but Zoot nailed it. With fun graphics and a no-leak neck and shoulders, the Force is a great entry-level suit or a solid pick for a warmer-water swim. Thick neoprene—up to 5mm in the back—will float you high in the water to help you save your legs for the rest of the race.
