The Draw: Subtle, Stylish Aid
Orca says this suit was designed for the “natural swimmer” and we agree. The suit puts a swimmer in a neutral body position—not particularly propping hips and legs up or guiding rotation. If you’re a great swimmer, you’ll love that you get added warmth without being forced to alter your stroke. If you need some help in the hips, this isn’t the suit for you. The Equip has decent shoulder flexibility, especially at this price point, and a durable-feeling interior linter. Bonus: It looks darn good on.
