2XU Team T:O, £199
The T:O offers SCS-coated Yamamoto neoprene and some great design features. The neoprene thickness ensures a high and streamlined position in the water, making you faster for less effort. 2XU has used a one-piece design from the neck to the knee to improve hydrodynamics even further. Within this section is the upper leg, which uses thicker neoprene to give you greater buoyancy. Below the knee, the neoprene is thinner. This, combined with the quick-release leg cutaway, makes the suit quick to remove. The neoprene and interior lining of the underarm are flexible, for a good range of shoulder movement. The T:O has a floating zip panel, giving a strong, flexible back as you move through the longest part of the arm stroke.
How it rated: 8/10
