How much would you expect to pay for a custom-fitted wetsuit? $500? $1,000? $5,000? Not anymore! De Soto offers you the best fitting wetsuit by letting you customize the fit with their separate tops and bottoms. The De Soto T1 First Wave Bibjohn is the pinnacle of their wetsuit bottoms, featuring a 4-way stretch Nylon Lycra lining to minimize chafing; seams that are both glued and blind-stitched, making them stronger than the rubber itself; and elliptical leg openings for faster and easier removal. Pair it with the De Soto T1 First Wave Pullover and you’re ready for your fastest and most comfortable swim.

This is my second wetsuit. I had an entry level Orca fro the first 4 years of doing tris and decided to make a capitol improvement in my swim this year. I love the fact that the top and bottom can be got in different sizes. If you have "runners legs" and "swimmers shoulders" you can get a size 4 bottom and a size 5 top, OR if you have cyclist legs and a runner upper body you can get a size 4 top and size 5 bottom. The green goma is a definite improvement over the standard rubber. Better flexibility and mobility. It also seems to have better flotation. Have no fear about it being 2 pieces, transitions are just as fast or faster once you get the hang of it.
Pros:You can get a suit in 2 different sizes. Great fit and flexibility. Awesome company with great warranty, customer service and people who stand behind the product.
Cons:A little pricey BUT I believe that it is well worth the $$$
