2 years with my tri-suit and I can tell: that thing is INDESTRUCTIBLE!
Now I bought an Orca suit and the Orca signs last a month or less...
The entire event (IM) is like "death by 1000 cuts" and the best race is minimizing all those cuts and losing less blood than the other guy. - Dev
The new stuff this year is what the issue. The material is of poor quality (same cost) and some of the lettering falls off after the first use. And after about 5 to 6 uses the new tri shorts (all 3 pair) just fell apart.
I washed them with the older 2xu garments and the older tri shorts are still going..
what i really mean to say is i completely agree....maybe if we make a big enough stink soemone from 2XU will see the thread and do something about it
Ended up returning them and picking up Zoot compression socks. Not only do the Zoot socks look sweet (opinion), but they compress much more for the correct size and the fabric quality is obviously much better (thicker, seemingly more durable). I've been wearing them for about eight weeks under shoes and around the house by themselves during recovery and am very pleased with how well they're holding up.
I have tri clothing from 2008 I think? And it is rock solid I don't know how many times they've been washed. New gear the letters are coming off immediately. You are right the screen printing is NOT strechy as their material and it either cracks or peels off.
Just the compression sleeves. From my experience they are cheaper, easier to put on, and seem to work slightly better than the socks.
For tights, nothing beats the Zoot Recovery ones, but they are a pain to get on (mostly because of the piece that goes around the foot, but it is invaluable whenever your feet hurt). It's the reason I originally bought the 2xu ones since they go on very fast and easy.
