Great suit very comfortable

Verified Buyer Reviewed by togger from Minneapolis, MN on Tuesday, September 7, 2010
Just did my first triathlon in this suit and I will wear it for all my future events and probably swim training at the gym as well. I'm a slightly wider 215lb 6' 2" and the suit felt true to size though I was wary after reading some reviews that called it an undersized product. For this reason, I also purchased an XL Tyr sprint and Sugoi XL suit for comparison. Once I had all three home, I tried each on, wore them around the house and did some light callasthenics to get a feel for the movement of each suit. In the end, I decided on the Orca which seemed to have the most generous cut of the three (especially for someone with a larger upper body - more room for arm movement on a swim). Though the Tyr seemed slightly more generous along the legs and mid-section, the arm holes were not quite large enough and felt like they would chafe. While purely subjective, I liked the design of the Sugoi the best, but it was by far the tightest and most uncomfortable of the three. I was very pleased with the Orca suit and will wear it again and again for future tri's-
