Triathlon Plus - - The Big Test - hu­ub­de­

A REL­A­TIVELY PLAIN de­sign (front de­tail is lim­ited to a few well-placed stripes) be­lies the hid­den qual­i­ties to this suit. Our sinky-legged testers de­clared this a God­send. “Bril­liant – it’s like swim­ming with a pull-buoy,” said one. “I feel like a dol­phin in this – as if I’m ac­tu­ally mov­ing faster through the wa­ter,” de­clared an­other.

Al­though the suit felt fairly thick com­pared to some other de­signs on test it was ex­cep­tion­ally comfy and warm while stretchy multi-pan­els in the shoul­ders and chest al­lowed free­dom of move­ment in the arm ac­tion. Our testers needed help in get­ting the zip up and the suit was more of a strug­gle to peel off than some of the oth­ers we tried – how­ever it does have a quick-re­lease zip to speed things up. The new low neck­line would suit those who pre­fer a less re­stric­tive fit – and a wide Vel­cro fas­ten­ing at the back pre­vents leaks, how­ever rough stitch­ing caused chaf­ing to one of our testers.
