ROKA Maverick Pro Full

$800, Rokasports.com

For full-body coverage with a natural feel, the Maverick outperformed all the others in this review. “Everything from recovery to extension is much faster,” said a tester. The other raved about the lack of resistance in the glide position when extending to start a stroke. Sensation for the water was unparalleled. ROKA uses a textile forearm panel that allows water to pass over the skin, which testers unanimously agreed improved feel for the water during the catch. The suit’s excellent conforming fit, paired with best-in-class performance in the efficiency test, make the Maverick Pro Full an incredibly well-rounded suit that provides ample value for the price.
