Tyr Hurricane Category 5
$650, Tyr.com
The draw: Pro quality without a constricting fit

Typically suits catered to the elites have a too-tight fit for many amateurs, but the Category 5 was surprisingly comfortable and easy to put on and take off while still being incredibly secure against water leaking in. The suit’s five-panel core stabilizing system stayed tight around the torso and felt smooth while rotating through the water. One tester said the suit felt “buoyant in all the right places” with a “perfect fit” that allowed for a natural, long stroke without restriction.
