Reviews about Vector Pro Wetsuits
Here I gathered different reviews about Xterra Vector Pro wetsuits from different sources. I hope it will help you form your impression about the Xterra Vector Pro wetsuits.
Review on the “Triathletes Diary” website (Vector Pro X3).
Short summary: I’m very pleased to report the suit fared well; it was comfortable in the arms and – just as importantly – quick to remove in T1. I did have a slight issue with the zip cord, but I think that’s because it had become wrapped around my torso in the swim. However, removal of the upper body and arms was easy.

Do not buy anything from Xterra.
I returned my wetsuit in perfect conditions and packed the way they ask to do it and they would not return me my money back saying it was broken when they received it.
Sorry to hear that!
Did you choose a different brand? Would be interesting to hear which one and what was the experience with it.
this company is such BS- they are telling me you are not supposed to zip up your wetsuit yourself- someone else has to do it-
she says the pull is only to get out of it.
I’ve had a problem w it since I got it- they could care less
so surfing is only for couples?
If the swimmer is not used to wearing wetsuit it’s hard to close it by yourself. But with time it’s no problem. It strange that you got that kind of suggestion.
