Review on the “Mightybenblog” website, dated August 31, 2018 (Vanquish vs Archimedes 3).
Short summary: The Aspire is a few years old, and isn’t in the best condition any more (which is why I’ve bought a new wetsuit), so the comparison favors the Vanquish.

Coming from an open water swimmer background, I was always a little hesitant about buying a triathlon wetsuit. Up until this purchase, I have always swum in 2mm surfing wetsuits with short legs.
It took a little adjustment in my technique, but after that first swim, I was hooked!
Some neck rub on stormer days and very delicate. The included gloves are essential, even if they do make you looks little strange in the car park!
Nice job Zone 3
Thanks for the comment! A friend of mine swims in a Zone 3 Aspire wetsuit – he also speaks highly of it.
