Does anyone have any experience racing in Desoto Speedtubes or Bibjohns? I despise any sort of tightness or compression around my chest, so the speedtube has a lot of apeal to me. However, I am worried that they might slip down during the swim and would just be another something to worry about. The bibjohns seem like I wouldn't have to worry about the slipping down, although I am worried about shoulder restriction with them. Right now I am just inclined to only register for warmer races, but it would be nice to have a wetsuit option for warmth/buoyancy. Unfortunately there are no local stores that seem to carry Desoto wetsuits at all. I would love to get some input from anyone who has raced speedtubes or bibjohns without additional tops. Particularly any info on sizing as it looks like there won't be an option to try on the suit prior to purchase. I am 6'3 215lbs.
