Profile Design Wahoo $195

The sleeveless Wahoo meets the needs of swimmers with either shoulder- or hip-driven freestyle technique (you practice one or the other). The neck and shoulder neoprene prevents the shoulders from overreaching, which is a common cause of shoulder injury. The neoprene is moderately comfortable around the neck, but you should still use lubricant to prevent chafing and to maintain comfort in high-friction areas. The neck Velcro has two separate patches with stitching that may need repair before the suit wears out.
