HUR­RI­CANE CAT 1

Triathlon Plus - - The Big Test - wig­gle.co.uk

OUR TESTERS DE­CLARED this an ex­cep­tion­ally buoy­ant and se­cure suit that lit­er­ally hugs the wearer – a real con­fi­dence booster for sinkies who are new to open-wa­ter swim­ming. They also ex­pressed sur­prise at its flex­i­bil­ity which be­lied its thick­ness (of­ten 5mm). The neck was tight and se­cure (al­though one tester found it a bit fid­dly to fas­ten at the back and it took a cou­ple of at­tempts to get it right) and re­ally kept the wa­ter out. The lining of the suit was smooth and soft – which is a real plus for com­fort. The sheer thick­ness of the suit made it slower to re­move – and it would have ben­e­fited from tapes on the in­side of the suit en­abling leg length to be trimmed to de­sired length. But if you’re look­ing for a plain-look­ing, comfy, buoy­ant suit to keep you warm in long, chilly, swims, this one is hard to beat.
