The two-piece design of the T1 Wetsuits offers more comfort and less restriction. The top and bottom are not attached. This means you have much more freedom of movement and there is no “torso-rubber stretch” or shoulder fatigue that occurs with one-piece wetsuits. All T1 models are sold as separates for a customized and personal fit. With up to seven sizes of tops and bottoms, you have 49 possible size combinations from which to choose. Other features we innovated many years ago include lower necklines and thicker rubber in the legs and hips to help float the largest bones and muscles in the body. More floatation here means more speed. T1 Wetsuits are not filled with gimmicks, just physics.

Proper swim stroke includes swimming with your head slightly tilted up. Imagine how your head would be if you were reaching for something in an upper shelf of a cabinet.  That said, the snug part may require a certain "getting use to.”  The other part to know is that it will also relax a little bit over time by wearing it. It is important that the neck be snug so that water does not freely flow in while swimming.

Whether you like to swim for exercise or are on the swim course of a Triathlon, T1 Wetsuits offer you speed, comfort and buoyancy that will make swimming pure pleasure!

DeSoto Gear Will Love You A Long Time!

I just retired my first DeSoto T1 2-pc wetsuit after more than 10 years of service, and have purchased my second suit to get me through the 50’s. DeSoto makes the best gear that outlasts any other brand that I have worn. And whenever I snag or put a tear into my wetsuit, DeSoto has always repaired it free of charge. Quite simply, DeSoto makes the best triathlon gear available. Bravo!

very happy with the set

reviewing both top and bottom, as they work as a unit - Used both pieces in the GR Triathlon last week - far more comfortable than the 1 piece suit - bought the top a size larger than the bottom and could breath comfortably in the approx. 1 mile swim, way better than with the 1 piece. it�۪s easier to get on and off than a 1 piece - and I can do the zipper myself, which is nice.
