It's on offer at the mo.
It bangs on about titanium lining and stuff.
Is it a thermal one to rank with the thermal specific versions from Huub & B70?
(As personally, I can never get too cold in OW!)

also any thoughts on sizing, as I'm in between SM and ST
https://zone3.com/product/mens-victory-d-wetsuits/#overview

also I have dangly leg syndrome and benefit from positive buoyancy i.e. relatively thicker neoprene in the legs. how does this fare cf the '3:5' +ve offerings from others, or is it neutral / 4:4.

Also, as it's a pricey high end one, is it 'made of chocolate'? Question Shocked i.e. will it fall apart in 2 months like a Huub Archimedes? Mad :disbeleif:

I wouldn't bother, you'll only forget it and do the Bruce Banner impression again like at this years Enduroman in your old religous one Wink

Titanium lining for warmth & a combination of Gold and Gunmetal SCS for a premium look.

No mention of denim. Not for you TC.

That looks like a good deal for a top end wetsuit, my helix is getting a bit manky.

Any genuine feedback on them?

I also like the look of the Roka but wouldn't pay full price!

Disclaimer - I work at Zone3

The titanium inner lining and slightly thicker neoprene panels than the Vanquish both help to maintain temperatures in cooler swims, and is pretty similar to the BlueSeventy Thermal wetsuit. The lining is the same as that found in the Zone3 Heat-tech gloves and boots, which are well reviewed and rated at keeping warmth in during the colder swim sessions.

The neoprene balance is designed with a more "sinky" legged swimmer in mind, and has thicker neoprene around the hips and quads to the Vanquish. Hopefully the attached picture helps a bit?



I would suggest that if you're between sizes, to mainly base your decision on the weight measurement as a priority over height.
