I'm thinking about doing either half IM or quarter IM (basically Olympic distance) at the end of October and I was wondering what wetsuit everyone used and whether they preferred a one-piece or two piece wetsuit. I live in Scottsdale, AZ so I haven't found much use for one yet (due to the heat), but was looking into getting one for the winter months. I'll probably be doing mostly sprint and Olympic distances (if that matters when choosing a wetsuit). I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions or preferrences. Thanks in advance.

All of the major players make good suits...you just need to find the one that fits you best. Most prefer full suits, I personally have a long john. You just need to find a shop and tri them on.
I have both a full and a Long John Ironman Stealth mostly for the 3-D fit, although I mostly use my Long John because of warmer water temps and for ease of shoulder movement. I do use my full in early season races because I HATE COLD WATER.
Another thing you may consider is that Ironman Wetsuits make a "FemmeFit" made exclusively for females.
