2012 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Wetsuits

Xterra Vortex $400

The Vortex does not compromise on comfort or durability. Beginner and expert triathletes alike will find this suit effective for training and racing. The only drawback was slight resistance during the recovery phase of the stroke. Xterra’s sizing charts are true and give an excellent indication of your ideal suit size. The inner liner makes the Vortex warmer than most suits. Also, Xterra offers a generous two-year warranty to cover wetsuit damage. Xterrawetsuits.com
