    Wetsuit Recommendations

    My first triathlon is in 3 weeks and I need to start looking into a wetsuit. I've decided to go with a sleeveless one. Which companies are the best, or best value, out there as far as wetsuits go? I like the orca sonar sleevless, 2XU SC:1, quintana roo, zoot, etc.. They're all around the same price except the orca which is about $20 more. I'm looking to get the most for my $$

    I got an Orca Speedsuit sleeveless (2005 model i think) and i really like it. However I ended up buying a second wetsuit this year (fullsleeve) to have a warmer option.

    All the brands you listed are good though. It's kinda hard to get a bad wetsuit really.

    I have a QR ultra john. I've only used it once so far, but I really like it. I haven't tried or even looked at the other ones, but I'm sure they are all fine choices. One thing I like about the QR is the break away zipper. I haven't tried one with a regualr zipper, but just being able to yank on the cord vs. unzipping all the way down seems like a nice way to get out of it.
