Orca Swim Classic swim suit
With the wetsuit market more than covered, Orca has transferred some of their knowledge to the pool and, judging from this suit, they’ve clearly done their homework.
Their new swim range – the CL-R – features the latest in chlorine-resistant fabrics. The One Piece Classic is exactly that: simple but smart-looking with a funky design that stretches down the suit and adds to its sleek look. There’s no doubting it’s a comfortable suit in which to put in some serious mileage.
It’s fully lined through the front so has a soft-on-skin feel, and all seams and panels are flat-lock stitched. The shoulder straps are thinner than the Tyr’s (see right) but still offer plenty of support without chafing or rubbing. The CL-R fabric is quick-drying and has high chlorine resistance so it’ll keep on performing in the pool.
