Orca 3.8 Enduro
Testing this suit on two swimmers produced very different results. While the more skilled swimmer saw a modest improvement, the tester with a tendency to sink benefited tremendously from the 3.8 Enduro. His distance per stroke improved substantially more in this suit than in any other. The massive panels of ultra-buoyant aerated neoprene created powerful lift in the water. Its expertly shaped torso keeps water out while liberating the arms for “totally free movement,” said a tester. Every point in a stroke feels natural. For athletes looking to improve their body position without sacrificing stroke mechanics, Orca has nailed it.
