Orca Swimrun Core Top & Bottom

The Draw: Stop Overheating on the Run

Not all swimrun races are in freezing temperatures, and this two-piece lightweight suit is designed to allow you to stay cool while giving you an advantageous boost in the water. The neoprene isn’t coated, so you get a little less insulation while still maintaining buoyancy. The top can be completely unzipped and removed on the runs (though carrying it could be an issue) or zipped up and connected to the shorts for the swims. Testers had a bit of an issue with the material bunching up under their arms during the run, but abundant pockets for nutrition and race gear are a definite plus.
