Hi all, I have just purchased the orca 3.8 and i must say it is FANTASTIC!

Pretty expensive but worth every penny. The buoyancy in the torso and legs is just like swimming with a pull buoy.

Am soooooooooo happy with and feel better about doing my first open water tri at Blenheim.


  • You got a £325 wetsuit for your first open water swim??? I wish I could do that!

    I couldn't either! I just got an Orca Sonar 2007 from Swim Bike Run in Windsor

    Need to use it now :)

    Hi Matty

    Sorry it's taken so long..... but I love it. I agree, you feel like you're swimming with a pull buoy and it's really flexible. When I first saw it, I said I'll never fit in that, but once on it felt fantastic. I used carrier bags to help get it on, which really helped and I'm really looking forward to swimming in it again tomorrow.

    Good luck with your racing
