Sailfish Men’s Attack Triathlon Wetsuit

by Harry
(Ireland)

The Sailfish Attack wetsuit is amazing! It is not cheap, but you get what you pay for, and I believe this suit is actually really good value for money.

The swim has always been my weakest leg, I always come out of the water way down the field. However in training I am going so much faster in this suit, so I am hopeful that it will make a significant difference to my racing too.

I chose the size based on the Sailfish sizing guidelines, and when it arrived it fitted perfectly. Also, it arrived in a really cool bag, with mesh to let water drain out and space to store a towel or a pull buoy etc.

The first thing I noticed about the suit was how light it is. It looks good as well, with the seams glued flat.

The Sailfish Attack noticeably improves my position in the water, keeping my legs up and making me feel really buoyant. The rubber around the shoulders is really stretchy, so it has great flexibility round the shoulders. It has “aqua reach zones’ on the forearms which are supposed to increase resistance during the pull phase. It also has strengthened panels around the hips to keep your hips in an ideal position. The collar is really comfortable, no chafing, and no leaking.


Some technical details: This Sailfish suit is made with 1.5 to 5mm SCS Nanoskin Neoprene by Yamamoto. It has an Ultra-Softstretch inner liner which feels nice and soft, and a highly elastic GripTight2 collar. The zipper is the hydro-dynamically formed PowerSlide zipper, and the seams are blind stitched.

I noticed the difference in my swimming straight off, and my times in training are quicker than with my old wetsuit. I’m looking forward to racing in it. It is also nice and easy to take off, so hopefully looking at a quick T1 as well.


I would definitely recommend the Sailfish Attack if you have a bit more money to spend and want to get a really performing wetsuit.
