The Vi­sion from Zone3 is al­ready­one of the best en­try-level suits money can buy, but they’ve now pro­duced a women’s-spe­cific up­grade in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the dou­ble world cham­pion swim­mer, Keri-anne Payne. “Hav­ing worn plenty of wet­suits in my time, be­ing able to de­sign my own woman’s wet­suit that is both stylish and func­tional is a dream come true,” said Payne at the launch. The wet­suit shares the same tech­nol­ogy as Zone3’s ex­ist­ing Vi­sion – with 5mm buoy­ancy on the legs and 2mm stretch neo­prene across the arms and shoul­ders – but is specif­i­cal­ly­de­signed for fe­male swim­mers. It has a body-shap­ing de­sign and the graph­ics re­flect the tech­ni­cal cues of her ‘Straight Line Swim­ming’ method­ol­ogy, with a ‘K’ on the shoul­der to re­mind you to keep your head low and close to the arm/shoul­der when breath­ing. There’s also a blue graphic on the back that can be used by coaches to spot if the body is hold­ing a straight line in the wa­ter or if it’s snaking.
