An exciting new product by Zone3 designed to fill a gap in the market. This versatile product can act as a swimming suit but also as a base layer. Made from a high quality Yamamoto 1.5mm neoprene with Super-Stretch lining, this technical garment can offer buoyancy, speed through the water and additional warmth. It has a fantastic women͛s specific fit and offers core body insulation, excellent flexibility and comfort.
This garment can be either be worn on its own during pool or open water swimming training to give extra buoyancy and reduce drag through the water. Or it can be worn under a Tri suit (such as Aquaflo+) as a base layer to give an extra layer of warmth and insulation. This is perfect for outdoor pools which aren͛t heated and help allow swimming all year. It is also a good alternative for some pools which don͛t allow wetsuits to be worn and where a full wetsuit can get too hot.
For either use, we do recommend trying firstly with a Tri suit on top. The kneeskin is glued and blind stitched for durability and features a back zip and cord making it easy to put on and take off. The open cell neoprene is folded, heat bonded and zig-zag stitch on the arm, neck and leg holes to reduce water entry which make a very stylish looking finish. The neck panel finished higher than a normal Tri suit and the shoulders a wider to give more coverage.
