Purchased this the day before Ironman Australia on a whim to not be racing in a years old worn out suit. Throwing "don't try anything new on race days" right out the window. Pulled the tags out in the starting area, wet suit zipped up and off we went. Genuinely more comfortable than most of my cycling shorts on the bike on a rather unforgiving course to say the least and it kept me cool (temperature and looks) on the run that I had no issues with feeling sick in the heat or dehydrated etc, and I'm English and thrive in the cold. A bonus is the amount of pockets available, enough in the legs alone to cover a whole race worth of nutrition, even if you like carrying around sandwiches and bigger wholefood items. Its been used for subsequent sprints and winter duathlons and has held up in all conditions as well as wetsuit-less swims in salt and fresh water. Bought a Small as a 5"7.5', 67kg person, fit out the gate spot on.
Grab your tape measure, make sure it is held flat, not twisted and always make sure that it is held firmly, not cutting in or squashing the area you are measuring. Please take the measurements below and compare them to the size chart to find the size that is right for you.
Taking your measurements whilst naked will give you your exact measurements, but if you intend wearing a garment (like a sports bra under your trikit), then take your measurements with those garments on.
CHEST/BUST – Place tape measure around the fullest and widest part of your bust (usually the part with the nipples!) Be careful not to let the tape measure slip down at the back, or squash you.
WAIST – Place tape measure between the bottom of your ribs and the top of your hip bones (the easiest way to find your waist is to stand in front of front of a mirror and suck your tummy in hard - you should see it!). It's also usually the narrowest part of your natural waistline.
HIP – Place the measuring tape around the fullest, widest part, usually over your bottom or at the top of your thighs between your hips and thighs.
HEIGHT – In bare feet, stand against a wall and mark the point perpendicular to the top of your head. Measure up to this point from the floor.
These measurements do not include ease, which is the amount of extra space allowed in a garment for comfort and movement. The amount of ease added can greatly differ depending on the fit of the garment.
