"I don't like COLD open water swims..simply stated.! As it turned out in 2013, EVERY RACE I entered was wetsuit legal due to water and even air to water temp. ratio in London, England at Standard Distance TRI WORLDS. I qualified for Worlds at Burlington, VT in 2012 where the winds and water temp. created a very COLD swim with high waves...SO thankful I had purchased the First WAve Concept 5 Pullover and Bibjohns!! That was the first time I wore a 2 piece wetsuit which is simply the MOST COMFORTABLE wetsuit in existence with no neck chafing and more flexibility! At Serpentine Lake in London, Eng., 2013, water temp. was in the 50's and air so cold you could see your own breath! THANKFULLY I also purchased the wetsuit cap to wear under my race cap as I am prone to "vertigo" in COLD WATER. No problems wearing De Soto and Placed 6th Age Group...3rd for TEAMUSA! Simply LOVE De Soto Sport Company and their amazing products! "KonaGIRL2012


Ease of use

Easy to put on and remove...I struggled with this in one piece wetsuits!


Quality of Construction

NOTE: the total price paid was for Bibs AND Concept 5 Pullover...both pieces! Look for End of the Season Sales on the De Soto Sport Triathlon Company Website! Quality is EXCELLENT!



The 2 pieces assure excellent FIT and Customer Service can advise for your personal needs! Just give them a call.



Trust will not find a more comfortable wetsuit than the First Wave wetsuits at De Soto!



I've used De Soto Sport First Wave Concept 5 Pullover and Bibs for two seasons now (Iron Distance, Olympic Distance, and for Sprint Distance I wore the Speed Tube/Speed Vest and there is no visible sign of "wear" on any of the pieces!



With De Soto wetsuits, I no longer "fear" COLD water swims and don't worry about "hyperventilating" because of chest compression! NO neck chafing either!! AND to have the wetsuit cap under my race cap preventing vertigo...definitely worth EVERY PENNY!



I love the T1 logo on De Soto wetsuits. The wetsuit itself is sleek and very comfortable so you SMILE with confidence at the starting line:)


Customer Service




You can BREATHE naturally in De Soto more gasping for air because of excess compression on your chest or chafing and pulling on your neck! Your performance is definitely improved when you have the flexibility to swim with a natural stroke...options also of sleeveless or long sleeves.


Most comfortable wetsuit on the market and I've tried many! Easy to put on and take off, flexible, no neck chafing which has happened with other brands! You definitely save energy for the bike and run at any distance TRI! (I've completed 6 IM including 2 at Kona) and De Soto guarantees you will be faster!


No weaknesses with De Soto Sport Tri gear/apparel!
