In 2016 the swimrun community saw the birth of a new swimrun brand, namely Colting. The founder Jonas Colting, multiple Ultraman and ÖtillÖ world champion, who in 2014 swam 640 km from Stockholm to Gothenburg, is a guy who pretty much knows everything there is to know about being in the water. And him taking the step to materialize his ideas and experience, has sort of been expected. Among several products, he’s designed and developed a brand new swimrun wetsuit which was launched early this summer. But despite us having seen a few suits being used here and there, we hadn’t really seen a proper review of it. And curios as we are, we decided to get our hands on one and give it a thorough test.
The Colting Swimrun Wetsuit
The suit is made out of the well-known 39 and 40 Yamamoto Super Composite Skin (S.C.S) neoprene. It’s a combination which allows for maximal flexibility, buoyancy and durability yet with minimal water resistance. The Yamamoto neoprene is up to 99.7 % water resistant.
