Wetsuit Advice: Orca Speedsuit S1


I'd like to know if anyone has had any experiance with the Orca Speedsuit S1 or Orca Speedsuit. Im currently looking for a wetsuit for my first ever triathlon and have found a really good deal on a second hand S1. Is this suit any good? Any advice or words of wisdom would be appreciated.

    Make sure you try it on, check it for rips/tears. Check the zipper is ok and enquire what thickness it is and whether arms are tapered.

    If it feels right, then it's a good suit. Tight enough that you feel it in your chest, legs and back, loose enough in the shoulders and not making you feel sore. Also, look out for any signs of rubber corrosion around the ankles, wrists and neck (since sometimes people use the wrong lubricant like Vaseline petroleum jelly).
