The Vitalis TRN Wetsuit is the evolution of Openwater Core TRN.

The Openwater Vitalis TRN is the perfect wetsuit for swimmers who are just starting in openwater or who need a suit for daily, triathlon-oriented training. The high flexibility in the shoulders makes your first workouts in open water very comfortable, while its buoyancy will keep you feeling secure.


Flexibility
The highly elastic materials in this wetsuit will provide you with more flexibility in all phases of the swim stroke so that you can enjoy total freedom of movement during your openwater swimming sessions.

Thermal Comfort
The 3 mm-thick neoprene in the torso and legs will provide you with the necessary thermal comfort to extend your adventures at sea without worrying about low temperatures.

Neutral Buoyancy
The 3 mm panels will allow you to maintain a neutral buoyancy, improving your position and allowing you to move through the water quickly.

Composition
Neoprene : 95 %
Polyamide (Nylon) : 5 %

CLEANING
Neoprene can be damaged by excess salt or other chemicals such as chlorine if used in swimming pools. We recommend washing your wetsuit with plenty of water after use. A small amount of neutral pH soap can be used and then rinsed out afterwards.
Once clean, be sure to prevent it from holding on to too much moisture. Air dry it outside or in a ventilated indoor space, somewhere without direct exposure to sunlight as this can damage its materials.

STORAGE
Storing your wetsuit properly keeps the materials and seams from creasing and being strained for long periods of time. It also prevents the material from wrinkling, which can affect both the wetsuit's durability and appearance.
The best way to store a wetsuit is to hang it draped from its waist, so that the most delicate areas such as the shoulders and arms do not have any tension on them.
For wetsuits with very flexible shoulders, (Apex Flex or Apex Flow) it is important not to place them on a hanger from the shoulder area, as this will degrade the elasticity over time. For the rest of the models, a wide hanger can be used, as long as the wetsuit is not strained in the shoulder or neck area.

SOME RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE
1) Avoid contact between the velcro and the lining of your wetsuit as this will affect the material’s sensitive fibers. Keep the velcro covered with the provided fabric patch or make sure the velcro is fastened, so that the rough part of the velcro won’t damage the inside of the wetsuit.
2) Be careful not to damage the neoprene material with your fingernails while putting on or taking off your wetsuit, as this type of damage is not covered by our warranty policy.
3) Triathlon and open water wetsuits have been designed specifically for surface swimming. We can't guarantee correct performance of the wetsuits for other activities. Any damage to the wetsuit resulting from activities other than surface swimming is not covered by our warranty policy.
4) Avoid scraping your wetsuit against any surface (especially rough surfaces), never lean on any surface with your wetsuit on.

1. I have had a look at your wetsuit size chart but only fit the chest and weight measurements in my chosen size. I am too tall for this size, what should I do?
The most important thing to consider when fitting a wetsuit is that the suit fits correctly on your torso (shoulder to crotch). So, if you are too tall to fit into the corresponding height measurements for your weight and chest size, but you either know that you have a long or short legs or arms, then don’t worry, your core will be warm and the suit will fit you. It may be worth try some swim booties when the temperature starts to drop.

2. I have had a look at your wetsuit size chart but only fit in the height and weight measurement’s, but my chest is too broad/big, what should I do?
When it comes to being too broad for our size chart (but only a little bit), the best thing to do is to go for a more flexible wetsuit which accommodates your chest or shoulders better. Unfortunately, this does tend to mean spending a bit more, but a correct fitting wetsuit makes a world of difference.

3. I have had a look at your wetsuit size chart but only fit in the chest and height measurements, my weight is below the minimum for that sized suit, what should I do?
If you are just a bit below the minimum sizing and you are looking at an intermediate suit or above (Sonar or above) then you should be ok and these wetsuit models are cut to be a more ‘athletic’ fit than the entry level suits. If you are substantially below the weight require and near the lower limit of the height and chest size, it may be worth trying a size down in one of the more flexible wetsuits.
