Zoggs Jewel Reef Speedback

Key information

Our score




On first look at Zoggs’ offering we weren’t convinced; the pattern a little too garish for our muted palette. But at least it was a single-layer suit in the old-school style. In fact, we’d been so used to testing the double-layer suits that we felt quite exposed stepping poolside.

But this is a traditional swim training suit, complete with high leg and racer-back. And it performed beautifully. The size 10 fitted perfectly, although if you’re blessed with an ample behind J-Lo style you might be at risk of builder’s-bum syndrome.

Predominantly polyester, we’re not sure how far this suit would see you through a heavy off-season’s training before actually becoming see-through; the material feeling noticeably cheaper than the others on test. But, as with all suits these days, it’s still reassuringly chlorine resistant, which should increase its longevity.
