Short summary: When using this wetsuit at IRONMAN 70.3 Muskoka, I had a surprisingly good swim. My sighting was great, which is something that gives me stress, and I was moving through the field pretty well. I like to think my training helped, but honestly, the wetsuit seemed to give me a boost of confidence as I swam.
