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.

New Features:

  • Zipper is lighter weight and corrosion resistant
  • Less-toxic bonding agent for people with skin sensitivities
  • Interior 4-way stretch nylon-spandex has a higher thread count than any other brand for more stretch and durability, faster drying, and to minimize chafing

Favorite Features Remain:

  • Flexible 2mm body with a lower neckline for comfort
  • YKK® custom zipper is small, lightweight, and makes removal easier than ever
  • GreenGoma™ #8 Rubber with Super Composite Skin for exceptional buoyancy and to smoothly, glide through the water
  • Seams are glued and blind-stitched, making them more durable than the rubber itself
  • Sleek graphics, no gimmicks
  • Sold as separates for a truly customized fit
  • Sustainability is extremely important to De Soto, click here to learn how we are making a difference
  • T1 Wetsuits 100% Satisfaction Guarantee 
  • T1 Wetsuit product care and FAQs
  • Chlorine resistant treatment, but not recommend for repeated use in chlorinated water

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.

This model is an affordable option that is perfect for sprints, warm water races, and pool 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!

Better than expected

When I received the top I was skeptical about the neck tightness. I even reached out to Emilio with that concern. He assured me it was meant to be that way and it would be fine in the water. Well, he was right. Swimming was great. The freedom in the shoulders, overall fit and bouyancy were excellent. Extremely happy with my purchase

Speed Vest

It fits perfectly snug. Easy to get on. A little harder to get off. No restrictions on my strokes and keeps me warm in cold 50 degree water.

T1 Speedvest

The T1 vest is great. Top quality, versatile and easy to use. As owner of the complete T1 Bibjohn and Pullover I expected a lot from the Speedvest. And it delivers! Fast in the water, comfortable and warm. Great for moderate open water temperatures and quick swims in colder waters. The Speedvest delivers the same world-class feel and balance as the full DeSoto T1 wetsuit. As a swimming instructor I often enter and exit the water frequently during a lesson. I use the Speedvest when teaching. The T1 vest is always in my swim bag. Thanks, DeSoto
