So much to love, but beware of chafing!
I wore this suit for my first Ironman. While I loved it, it may not be best suited for long course due to chafing issues. Pros: Looks and feels amazing! Only needs a little red cape to complete the superhero look and feel. The fabric is light, cool, and stretchy. The pockets are the best I’ve seen: the deep kangaroo pocket at the back held tons of nutrition and the leg pockets were perfect for salt tubes. Cons: The 10” inseam was too long for my short legs, so the leg band was loose and gaping above the knee (I addressed this by folding it back). The bottom of the zipper chafed my belly button on long rides, and the chamois chafed my bum on long runs.
Women's Tri Suit
Fabulous tri suit - very comfortable, great fit and plenty of pockets for when you need them
First experience wearing both a one piece and short sleeves. I purchased the suit as I wanted more coverage from the sun. Suit is really comfortable and I do feel like it keeps me cooler. I like the placement of the pockets on the legs easy to access on the run. I have worn for both OLY and HIM distance so far.
Love, Love, Love!!!
This Tri Suit has exceeded my expectations. I decided to upgrade from my previous sleeveless DeSoto Tri Suit. I am so glad I did. It is sleek, comfy, tri functional and super cute! I used it today at my first race of the year and received tons of compliments. Zero rubbing! This coming from a girl with extra sensitive skin. The sleeves provided extra sun protection and quite frankly I just felt FAST!!! This suit will receive a lot of love this year.
Womans Tri Suit Jelly fish
After searching many web sites and speaking with local suppliers with the request for a Tri Suit with longer sleeve length and leg length - all being met with "sizing is standard". I had a De Soto Tri suit which I loved and have had many compliments about it - so decided to just take a chance and contact Tracy from De Soto. What a pleasure - friendly, helpful, prompt service. Looking forward to racing in my new custom De Soto Tri Suit. I will definitely continue to support this great company.
