The TX2000 is a great choice for a suit that won’t break the bank and works well across all distances. Blueseventy continues to update this style year after year, and it’s easy to see why the brand keeps it around. This staple piece is made with a thin, soft, breathable fabric that offers plenty of support. Despite its darker look, the UV protection and Coldblack technology do a great job of staying cool in the hot sun. One of the highlights of this suit is the flattering fit and the fact that it’s mostly black—making for a sleek look no matter one’s size. Simplicity is something you either love or hate about a kit, and since there’s nothing particularly fun or flashy about the TX2000, this one is about as simple as it gets.
