Verified Buyer Reviewed by Casual Triathlete from Okinawa on Monday, November 2, 2015I got this as a closeout deal, 90% off MSRP. Awesome quality - good compression, sleek on the outside so should be fast in the water and aero on the bike. Chamois is a good balance of padding for the bike without interfering with mobility during the swim or run.
As other reviewers have noted, the suit runs small. I am a large in other brands (6 ft, 165 lbs), but ordered an XL and it fits like a glove. I do not notice anything out of the ordinary with the zipper, as another reviewer mentioned. Can't wait to race in this!
Reviewed by Midlife Crisis in Progress from Virginia on Tuesday, September 22, 2015I read a review on another site that said this was a great suit for shorter triathlons ... which is all I intend to use it for. In that review, it showed a picture of the zipper and noted that it has a nice protective cover. As one of the reviewers here also notes, this version of the Skins Tri400 (yes, the same model) does not. Just the exposed zipper. That's almost ok (almost) but the zipper pull itself when fully zipped hits your neck/throat whenever you look down. Not comfortable. AND the zipper fabric itself not too comfy either ... sharp edges that will likely get softer with use but a long way from the soft cover in the other review I read. Also, the straps over the shoulders are a little wide but don't seem to impinge. Many good qualities as well, nice compression, sleek feeling, probably nice in the water, but am returning as the zipper issue is a bigger problem waiting to happen.
Reviewed by JW from OHIO on Tuesday, January 13, 2015I bought this as my first tri-suit. The quality of the materials is very good. The suit provided good compression. The pant part of the suit dries very quickly and works well on the bike and on the run, albeit that the padding is fairly minimal. The top of the suit is where the problems came in. First the zipper is not long enough to allow meaningful ventilation or cooling during the run. Also, and most problematic was the design of the upper termination of the zipper. The upper ends were so rough/sharp that the ends chaffed and dug into my lower neck leaving me bloody only halfway through the run portion of a sprint tri. The scars were so deep that even more than a year later I have two dime-sized scars just below my neck. STP was great and of course let me return the suit without any hassle whatsoever. I did like the lower portion so well that I ended up buying just the pant version on this product and used it for my 70.3 last July without any issues.
Reviewed by OMAC from Japan on Thursday, January 9, 2014Let me start with the fact that I bought EIGHT of these suits from Sierra Trading Post!
I bought this suit because it is super soft fabric while still having great compression qualities overall. I wears well throughout the entire triathlon course without binding or chaffing issues. It is a good fire engine red and black color that helps you stand out while biking and running on training days so you stay highly visible (during daylight hours).
The one drawback I found in this design is the two back pockets are either too small or that they could be designed as an envelope pocket; but still OK carrying very small items.
I am comparing this suit against Pearl Izumi PRO, LG, and Rocket Science Sports.
