personally I wouldn,t get another HUUB ,

I would go back to ORCA or SNUG


I've had my Snugg Slipstream since 2008; basically bulletproof and made-to-measure. A lot more than 200 though, even back then.

I'm another big advocate of Snugg. As someone who isn't a "normal" triathlete shape, it was a revelation when I went from an off-the-peg top end Orca to a made to measure Snugg.

I bought mine in 2012 and TBH I didn't think it was that expensive, certainly no more than other top end suits. Having said that, I did get a decent show discount when I ordered it at the TCR expo at Sandown Park (does that still exist???), and it's not as if they are going to sell off end of line suits cheap Rolling Eyes

If I can hi-jack the thread slightly...

So I've had a bottom end Huub since they came out - no issues altho shoulder flexibility never felt great.
So just took delivery off the Zone3 Aspire.... in Medium. Hopefully table formats ok....

size height weight chest
CM feet/inches kg LBS CM inches

ST 175-191 5.9-6.3 64-72 141-158 89-97 35-38
M 173-183 5.9-6.3 68-74 150-163 97-102 38-40
MT 175-191 5.8-6.0 68-78 150-172 97-102 38-40
ML 173-188 5.8-6.2 75-82 165-180 102-107 40-42
L 178-191 5.10-6.3 82-92 180-198 107-112 42-44

Now I'm 181 (5,11). weight currently 67 (min would be 64), chest 38.
So medium ticks the bill well. Whilst it felt a bit short on the leg (which Im fine with), I felt it fitted well - right up till I zipped up and felt like the top of the zip had become a neck brace.
Is this a sympton of it being too short? Or was it quite a firm suit in that aspect. I appreciate I'll have more flex when its wet and used a bit. Just not sure if moving to a MT will give me too much material!
Any thoughts welcome.
