QUINTANA ROO HYDROFIVE

-

VERDICT COMFORTABL­E SUIT THAT

85 HELPS WITH GOOD SWIM POSITIONIN­G; % RELATIVELY EASY TO GET ON AND OFF

£479.95 With the men’s version of this suit having been voted as ‘cutting edge’ in last year’s test, we were interested to see how the women’s QR HYDROFive performed. This suit has thinner neoprene on the upper body allowing for good arm rotation and thicker neoprene on the legs and chest panel. Great if you want help maintainin­g a better body position in the water or feel the cold more. While it was relatively easy to get on and off, the thicker leg material and fewer panels around the hips meant it took more attention than other suits on test. The ankle cuff panels and smooth interior help with removal. Overall, it was a good fit, yet it felt a little short in the body. We liked the comfy neck seal, and the zip was easy to pull up. quintanaro­otri.com
