I 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.
