Best for: All-around value, straight-arm recovery
Our tester said if he didn’t know better, he’d have thought this was a more expensive model for its noticeably decreased drag, increased buoyancy, great side-to-side rotation and comfortable neckline. The arms felt best swimming with a straight-arm recovery, and the suit helped increase distance per stroke. The Maverick Comp II holds heat in, so expect to stay warm on any swim—or opt for the long-john model for hotter, longer swims. The ankles fly off fast in transition. Nine sizes make it easy to find the perfect fit.
