The draw: Durable performance

This sleeveless wetsuit got high marks for its buoyancy and flexibility through the hips. The spot-on fit around the shoulders kept water out while not being too tight and causing irritation. Buoyancy in the hips allowed for good rotation. Warmth is always a bit compromised with a sleeveless design, but this suit is fine above 60 degrees. We liked the ease of getting the suit on, and the ankle cutouts at the bottom made removing the suit fast and easy. It’s best for experienced swimmers who want an unimpeded stroke. Our testers also thought the suit would hold up well over time.
