Hey, if you've got $1,500 to burn for "peace of mind" then by all means go ahead. However, it seems crazy to me that someone who is an experienced triathlete with 3 IM's under his belt needs "peace of mind" to be provided by a wetsuit. IMO there are much better ways to spend that money but I probably don't have the discretionary income that you seem (hopefully) to have.
You'd have to experience it to believe it. Claustrophobia coupled with a general lack of swim confidence can be a killer. Literally.
That said, some of my fast friends have tried it out and are were impressed by it as well.
