I've used this suit in everything from sprint to half ironman triathlons and this is a great tri suit. Fits well, dries quickly, and is extremely comfortable even under a wet suit. The back zipper can be tricky, but it has an attachment that allows you to zip it up yourself. Although it does not have any storage pockets on the back I still give this suit a 5 star review as I do not utilize the back pockets on a tri suit anyway. Pactimo makes high quality gear and this is no exception! Typically I wear a medium in cycling/tri gear but had to get a size small for this particular suit which leads me to believe they run a bit big. Overall - excellent suit!
