Orca Predator 2015 wetsuit review

The stand-out feature on Orca’s top-end 2015 suit (aside from the £600 price tag) is the super-thin 0.88mm arm and shoulder panels that aim to offer a completely unrestricted feeling throughout the entire swim stroke. 

>>> Best triathlon wetsuits of 2015

Certainly when you first put the Predator on, it does feel incredibly free around the upper body, which translates into a very natural feeling in the water compared to many thicker suits.

Whether the difference is really significant over the range of motion offered by the other top-end wetsuits on test here is a more marginal call, though. 

Buoyancy in the rest of the suit is nicely balanced and although the Predator lacks any other major whizz-bang technologies, it’s a very well-made, comfortable piece of kit. 

Verdict: Perhaps the best shoulder mobility of all. But that comfort comes at a steep price, 88%
