This redesigned Hurricane incorporates high-end features without the high-end price.

TYR revamped every wetsuit in its 2015 lineup with the exception of the range-topping Freak of Nature, which comes with a hefty $1,200 price tag. The Category 5 costs $450 less but has many of the same top-end features. The range of motion on the shoulders makes this suit flexible for an unencumbered glide phase of your stroke. Swimmers seeking extra buoyancy will benefit from the elevation panels on the chest, obliques, buttocks and thighs. The side panels serve the dual purpose of providing lift in the water in addition to keeping you streamlined and preventing fishtailing. Catch panels on the forearms are made of a thinner neoprene to provide an enhanced feel for the water.
