The two-piece design of the T1 Wetsuits offer more comfort and less restriction. Because the top and bottom are not attached, 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 more 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

Carry Over Features:

  • Flexible 2mm body and arms with a lower neckline for comfort.
  • BIO-STROKE design puts your arms into a forward rotated shoulder position for a more efficient swim stroke.
  • YKK® custom zipper is small, lightweight, and makes removal easier than ever.
  • GreenGoma™ #9 Rubber with Super Composite Skin makes the First Wave the warmest, fastest, most durable, flexible, buoyant, and the most comfortable wetsuit in the world today.
  • Lined with 4-Way stretch Nylon Lycra® for comfort and to minimize chafing
  • Seams are glued and blind-stitched, making them more durable than the rubber itself
  • Sleek graphics, no gimmicks
  • Sold as separates for a true 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.

    If your arms are bigger, you'd swim faster! If you could float more, you'd swim faster! This pullover incorporates both concepts and is legal in WTC & USAT events. T1 First Wave Concept 5 and T1 First Wave Pullovers are identical with the exception of the sleeve thickness. Concept 5 has 5 mm sleeves and First wave has 2mm sleeves. The difference is like adding about 3-4 additional fingers of surface area to each hand. The best way to see how significant that difference would be is to try swimming with just one or two of your fingers open and the others bent down.

    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 ever

    Flexible-buoyant-comfortable. Having had the older model, I can honestly say the new material is s difference maker!

    Wow.... why did I wait so long!

    I had a discount code....I wish every version of a story with this start was as great as my DeSoto experience! And I was in a hurry, my old one piece wetsuit had had an end of life experience one week before my first race of the season.. it was old (7 years) and worn and owed me nothing, but I was in a bit of a pickle. So I ordered a 2 piece suit on Sunday and paid for express shipping. Imagine my surprise that I received a call on Monday to confirm my size and my order. In fact DeSoto called me twice to confirm all my details and understand some of the wrinkles of my order. Everything showed up as expected and when I tried everything for an outdoor swim, I wondered all the way round why I had waited so long to purchase what for me is the most comfortable and downhill swimming feeling wet suit I have ever worn. I have zero constriction around my shoulders or chest and find the suit easy to put on and take off (this is as fast as my one piece). I cannot recommend this style of wetsuit or DeSoto enough. Just a class piece of kit and a great customer focused team. Thank you

    My first open water experience was a little nerve wracking but the suit gave me great confidence in the water. I��m accustomed to a wet suit with a farmer john and jacket from scuba diving, but find my diving suit (which is significantly thicker and has a neck component) to be very restricting. Your suit fit like a glove (thanks for all the sizing support) and I had no issues breathing/swimming in the suit (I love that the suit isn't constricting around the neck!). The buoyancy is phenomenal and I can achieve a great swimming position, float comfortably on my back to recover, and even relax while maintaining a vertical position in the water (to look around and get my bearings). As a new swimmer, I��m blown away with your gear and the confidence/performance boost I get from it in the water. Thanks again for everything including the phenomenal pre and post purchase support from you and your team! order#178543

    Great product, even better personal service

    Emilio is fantastic. Works with you to get the right size. If you're hard to fit, like 6'5" and 37" inseam, Emilio is your man and Desoto two piece suits are the only product in town.
