Problem with sizing chart
author Jun 12, 2015 | Posted by | Gender: Male Sport Interest: Triathlon Age: 45-54
I am 5'5" 128lbs but could not fit in size XS, while pulling up it stuck at my hip. I returned and asked for size Small instead, unfortunately it also was too tight, I thought I did not know how to put it on so I looked up on youtube where they show a better way of putting a wetsuit. I did that, too. I was sweating out while putting it on so it makes even harder for me…I finally got it onto my body but it was feeling like my blood stops going through my body, I can see veins from my hands puffing up and it was hard for me to breath…I took it off right away. I did not give up…I went down to the Corona Del Mar beach during the weekend to give it one more try in the open water, but I gotta went through the uncomfortable feeling once again and swim back into shore for just after 5 minutes of swimming, ugh…my OCTri race was just one week away. I had no other choice by contact TYR customer service for returning this wetsuit, unfortunately their policy is NOT accepting return after being worn. However, the manager there named Jill made an excellent customer service decision that she sent me a promotion wetsuit in size Small/Med (this size supposed to fit a 5’5” 160-166 lbs or 5’11” 146-152 lbs person), this was a beautiful Hurricane Cat 3 (mine is Cat 1). Once again, this wetsuit chest area even smaller than size Small that I currently had, so no way I can squeeze in that, I looked at these 2 wetsuits in disbelieve. I gave 3 stars because the customer service is exceptional, otherwise TYR would earn 5 stars from me.

Great first wetsuit

This is my first wetsuit purchase. I bought it to train and compete in my first triathlon. My first few swims in the wetsuit have been good. It was a little tight putting it on the first time, but has gotten easier. I'm very happy with my purchase. Good quality at a great price!
