    Tri Suit versus Tri top and shorts?

    What is the pros and cons of Tri suits versus Tri Separates? Going to purchase one or the other, but need to make an informed decision, being they are not cheap.

    I had to make the same decision a couple months ago. I went with separates because a) much easier if bathroom time is needed, b) I can use the shorts alone for swimming or running with a t-shirt if I choose. I haven't regretted my choice at all. Will probably pick up additional tops and shorts as I see them on sale etc.

    I got a Zoot Tri Suit, but only because I got it on clearnace and it was cheaper than buying separates.

    It's comfortable enough, although as @MikeD1 points out, it makes it somewhat a pain to hit the joy john before the race.

    I went with the one piece for our team logo suit, but bought a two piece to train with. Will compare when they arrive.
