If you're looking to move from the pool to open water, or are new to using a wetsuit, the Orca Equip Fullsleeve Wetsuit is an excellent choice. This suit is ultra-flexible, and easy to take on or off in a flash.

2-5mm premium quality SCS-coated Yamamoto 39-cell neoprene front panels ensure a range of motion normally associated with intermediate and top level wetsuits. 3-5mm Smooth Skin neoprene panels through the back add buoyancy, while Speed Transition panels aid transition times.

The Equip's Hydrostroke forearm panel has a distinctive silicone print, which catches the water through the pull phase of the stroke. The 2014 Equip's redesigned torso panel also provides better body positioning, plus increased buoyancy through the waist and the thighs. A multi-stretch lining makes the suit incredibly flexible. Refinements to the waist panel include extending it over the chest, while retaining it's 5mm thickness to boost buoyancy.


  • Flexiseal Neck: Limits water entry, reduces chafing and reduces drag
  • Slipstream Zip: Easy to use, generates minimal drag
  • Textured Forearm Panels: Increased water catchment giving more pull and traction
  • Yamamoto 39 Cell Neoprene: An extremely flexible neoprene, which supports an uninhibited natural swimming motion. Yamamoto 39-cell neoprene extends to a 520% elongation rate, meaning this material is sure to move with you. Added benefits of zero water absorption and zero weight-variation can mean only one thing: more speed. Yamamoto 39-cell neoprene represents the best neoprene available in its class
  • Super Composite Skin (SCS) Coating: Applied as a coating over closed-cell neoprene. The micro-cell structure of the SCS coating repels water when in contact with air and reduces surface resistance when in contact with water
  • Speed Transition Panels: Fast removal of suit enabling faster transition times

Whilst working as a swim coach, and from his first hand experience in competing in triathlon, Scott Unsworth realised that the wetsuits used at the time were completely inadequate for swimming. In 1992 Scott started up a company called Performance Speedsuits Ltd, based out of his parent's house in Auckland, New Zealand. He began to develop his "Speedsuits", which featured greater flexibility and buoyancy than other existing wetsuits.

The business started with Scott selling his Speedsuits from the back of his car at swim meets and triathlon events. The Speedsuits quickly gained a following amongst athletes and the business started to grow. Scott was taking his first steps towards introducing what would become Orca, to the world. A young New Zealand triathlete named Hamish Carter became one of the first athletes to sign up with the company that is now Orca. Over the next 13 years Hamish Carter went on to become one of the best known triathletes in the world - culminating in a gold medal at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.
