"I have been using my ORCA TRN for several open water and triathlon races this season. I've also used it for all my open water swim training. I'm a first year triathlete so this is my first wetsuit. I'm a decent swimmer (in my opintion) doing 30 minutes in the Half Ironman distance (1min 35sec/100m over 1900m).
The fit was excellent. Bought the recommended size by reading the sizing chart in the product description. I'm 182cm, 72kg and bought Medium Tall. Fits perfectly and looks great (check out the picture attached to this review).
Quality is also very good. I have no tears in it yet. Considering I've been swimming at least 3 times/week for the last 4 months I'm actually surprised.
Performance is not top notch. Keep in mind this is an entry level training wet suit. As a triathlon beginner it's probably the best buy, but if you value performance it will cost more... How do I know this? Orcas website states it's an open water training wet suit. Also, I can compare my race speed to my training partners using other suits, training partners whos capacity I know very well."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit
Cons: there are faster wet suits

"This was my first pair of tights from Gore. I've been running with several other brands during the last four years. Short tights are my preferred trousers for running. I had high expectations on these tights from Gore. My expectations we're exceeded. I love these. My other pairs are parked in the drawer, permanently.
Perfect fit and comfortable are highlights."
