First things first it was quite comfortable putting it on, it was a little big tighter than my old, stretched suit which was nice.
About half way through the swim I could feel a little scratch on the back of my neck but a with bit of anti chafe and my crocodile neck it didn’t bother me, maybe on a very long swim it would have got a bit worse.
The suit was comfortable during the swim as well and it also felt a little bit warmer, which might have been a result of getting some water through the suit before swimming (thanks Paul).
Time wise, I went two minutes faster than usual over about 2.6km in the water compared to the last two weeks with the same conditions and same effort . I usually swim in the oldest, cheapest suit that’s faded and siff so I did expect to go faster in a proper suit.
I think in one of the higher range suits I would have been able to cut off even more time. All in all it’s a nice suit and I enjoyed the experience.
