This review is over the Pearl Izumi Women’s One Piece Triathlon Suit.
- 88% nylon 12% elastane
- 2015 Spring/Summer
- SELECT Transfer Dry fabric sets the benchmark for compression and moisture transfer. Direct-Vent panels provide superior ventilation
- Separate bra top offers maximum support and allows easy on/off access of the suit. Flatlock seams provide superior abrasion resistance
- Plush elastic silicone leg gripper. 7″ zipper for venting.One easy access envelope pocket
- TRI quick-dry fleece chamois. Reflective elements for low-light visibility. 8″ inseam (size medium)
Overall the suit has a great fit as it is true to size, and provides the functions needed for a triathlon. The main concern I have is that the included bra is not supportive enough for larger chests, but is a separate piece so I opted not to use it. The second concern is the durability – I have only had the suit approximately two months and a seam has started to pull but the integrity of the suit seems to be in place.
If you’re looking for a good color scheme, this aqua/green one is great, but like most tri-suits it’s not very flattering for most body shapes. But we aren’t here for a fashion show are we?
Overall, for the price and comfort, it is a great suit!
