Zone3 warned us that the Neo­prene Warmth Vest was hard to get off, and they weren’t wrong: it took three peo­ple to wres­tle this off us at the Long Course Week­end. Yet this is a fan­tas­tic con­tender for cold-wa­ter swims, sit­ting tight to the body (aim to try be­fore you buy if pos­si­ble) but stay­ing warm and un­re­stric­tive for ex­tended swims. The high neck helps pre­vent wet­suit zip rub and, for 40-quid plus, you’re get­ting a ti­ta­nium-coat­ing to help main­tain the body’s warmth. Like the Orca, this dou­bles as a 2mm sin­gle layer for warmer swims and also adds some buoy­ancy for pool sets.
