Xterra Vector Pro

The draw: Shoulder-driven construction for freedom and leg lift

Swimmers with shoulder-driven freestyle technique will love the Vector Pro 3. Generating drive from the hip doesn’t feel quite natural in this suit, but the shoulders move without inhibition. The lower body is extremely buoyant, allowing the legs to relax and go along for the ride instead of kicking to stay at the surface. Wrist openings are snug and secure, preventing any water from seeping into the suit, but they take a little effort to remove during the run to T1. Both the seams and neoprene seem robust—we expect this suit to last for many seasons.
