This suit is very functional, and pretty comfortable too. I wore it for a sprint (trial run) and a full distance triathlon (140.6). The pad size is fantastic for the bike. In the sprint I thought it would be maybe a bit bulky for the run (like having a maxipad toward the front of underneath your legs), but by the time I got to the run in my ironman, I didn't notice this at all.
Zipper slides open - a known issue. It's a slow creep so possible to catch it before things get inappropriate, especially if wearing a sports bar.
After 140.6, I found I had some thin cuts on my arms and legs where the edge of the band must have been rubbing. Noticed no discomfort while wearing the suit, though.
Pockets are usefully sized and placed.
On the "cool black" technology - not sure. Feels great on the bike, the breeze is enough to keep things really comfortable (even in high humidity). But I felt very hot in the run - at only 80 deg but no noted wind - and wonder if maybe the black was a factor.
