    I think there is a difference between swim skins for tris and those for swimming (I'm sure Conehead can correct any mistakes, being an advocate of the blue seventy ones.)

    From what I've heard they are very good, and remember reading somewhere they can give you the biggest time gains of any piece of equipment you can buy (sounds far fetched!) But I am sure they do help, even though I have no experience. It depends really what you want to for, if you want it for completing a few pool sprints, then you're probably better off spending your money else where. If you want it for a non-wetsuit swim to help you qualify and you already have your aero-helmet and disc wheel, then why not!

    2 extremes, but you get the idea...
