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!

T1 Speedvest

I absolutely love this vest! It so comfortable. I am tempted to wear it in warmer water because of compression. However, I would get too warm... It has been great on the days the water temperature dips below 65. Which has been a lot this Summer! Great product! I will be getting the Speedpants next...

Well-designed, High Quality Product and Exceptional Customer Service

I was drawn the unique 2-piece design of De Soto T-1 wet suit - my thinking was I could better customize the fit, and adapt to different water temperatures, by mixing the pieces. I was also drawn to the made in North America shop. I am very happy with my decision - I found the perfect fit, after having exchanged the T-1 Bib-john, and I expect the suit will serve me well for years to come. The personal customer service of the owner, Emilio, and customer service manager, Richard was exceptional. I highly recommend this company and its well-crafted products. Meldon Ellis

Couldn't be happier

I've been surfing since pre-wet suits and doing triathlons and ocean swims since the early 80s and these are the best wet suits I've had in all those years. Can't race any more but bought the Speed Vest and Speed Tube when I stepped up ocean swimming due to Covid-19 and couldn't be happier. Worth the price. Also, thanks for the video on getting in an out, Emilio!

So great, but not perfect.

Great service. Great product. I bought the vest and pants to swim in he river while the gyms are closed. Water temp was 55 which I managed with this suit. Cold, but manageable. Pants are bomb-proof. Vest is good. Everything is quality design and construction. easy on and off. But honestly, the vest does ride up and expose my belly a little bit. I am pretty tall so that could be it, but this might not be avoidable even if you're little. Pull it down over the top of your butt and inevitably it will ride up to a narrower part of your body. Anyways, I would still buy it again and recommend it to anyone, just remember that it is a 2-piece and so you might have a little belly exposure.

The size chart above should serve as a general guide. If you would like assistance in determining the proper size, please send the following information to contact@desotosport.com.

WEIGHT - Accuracy helps us provide a more accurate size for you.
CHEST - Fullest part of breast, measured as the largest part of circumference right over the pectoral muscle.
WAIST -  Circumference measured at the belly-button line - this is NOT the same as your pants waist size.
HIPS - Circumference measured at the widest point, NOT at your hips where your belt may go. Typically this will measure just a few inches below your hip bones and around the largest part of the glutes.

 

If you do not have a tape measure and you need something to measure with, use a belt, or smart phone power cord, and a ruler.
