Closeouts. Stay comfortable and moving free as you transition between stages in Nike's vented tri suit, which comes equipped with high-stretch compression fabric, extended back vent for enhanced breathability and a low-profile, quick-drying microfiber pad.

Build quality seems good. This is my first Nike Tri suit, I normally use only 2XU. The fit is true to size with a little compression built into the legs. The padding is thin in the seat of the suit, which I like. I've yet to do a long training session, but am pleased so far by what I see.

Haven't actually worked out in it yet, just tried it on out of the box, and here are my first impressions.
I'm 6' 0", 170 lbs, and size L fits me fine in pretty much every other brand. This is a little too tight. Maybe Nike would call it "compression", but I previously bought a similar tri suit by Saucony from this site that feels much better. Also, the chamois is kind of thin. I know tri-suits need a thinner chamois than bike short padding, b/c you'll run and swim in them, but it's almost like no chamois at all. It would be pretty rough doing more than a sprint on the bike.
I'll probably just use this as a swim suit, and keep using the Saucony for tris.

I'm 6'4'' and weigh 170 pounds. I went through the sizing chart and ordered the medium. Way too small. I exchanged it for a large and it fit 1000x better. (The exchange process by the way was really simple and really easy. Immediate credit to get the new one shipped asap and a return label ready to go. I just put the medium in a box and dropped it off and UPS. Incredibly easy.)
The material feels fine on the skin. I haven't chaffed anywhere or gotten any irritated spots from seems rubbing constantly. It does hold water a little more than I had hoped, but it's not an amount that would make me send it back. A quick swipe over the suit while running through transition and the water is mostly gone. It dried really fast as well while on the bike portion. Nothing noteworthy to mentioned for the run portion.
I wish it had three pockets on the back in a more traditional jersey style (maybe with some light elastic) or that the two pockets were just a little bit deeper. Nothing fell out, but I was constantly checking it because of how close it was. Since nothing has fallen out yet I should probably just know that, but I'd rather be safe than sorry and lose my nutrition.
My race belt did ride up a little bit during the run and wouldn't stay low around my hips as I'd like. Since it's a one-piece it easy for it to move around on the material.
Overall great product and I would recommend it to a beginner or someone still trying to work up to being competitive and placing in every race. If I was at that level, I would probably find a different suit that addressed the small issues I personally had.
