Reviews about Equip Wetsuits

Here I gathered different reviews about Equip wetsuits from different sources. I hope it will help you form your impression about the Equip wetsuits.

Review on the “Trivelo” website, dated October 24, dated 2019.

Short summary: The Orca Equip comes highly recommended if you want a comfy, easy to put on and remove, speedy to swim in wetsuit. As long as you don’t mind striking some interesting poses to manoeuvre it into the perfect position before you get in the water.

Review on the “220triathlon” website, dated August 28, 2019.

Short summary: Peerless comfort and flexibility for the price; but look elsewhere for buoyancy 93%.

Video on the Youtube channel “John Runcie”, dated June 14, 2017.

 

Review on the “CompleteTri” website, dated April 30, 2016.

Short summary: In short, the Orca Equip is a good buy for starters who want to start economically with some features that would have been more expensive just a few years ago. 

Review on the “Outdoor Swimming Society” website.

Short summary: A sleek wetsuit with a bold design across the arms – for those seeking a more natural swimming position and not so concerned with heat retention, this a top choice.
