Today I will be giving a review of the Kiwami Amphibian 008 triathlon suit.  Kiwami was nice enough to partner with me for the 2012 season, and hopefully beyond.  I wore the Amphibian 008 with ITU customization on there.  Above is the uniform I wore in the Clermont Continental Cup.  Some of the features of the Amphibian 008 include:
           Being the lightest speedsuit on the markey (weighing about 100 grams).
           Having a flat zipper and cord that are easy to pull down if it is warm, but will not come off in the combative ITU style open water swim.
          It just FEELS FAST.

I have worn suits by other companies when I began dabbling in triathlon, and I have always preferred a one piece suit.   The Amphibian is the fastest feeling suit i have worn, and it has never felt too hot when racing in the hot conditions such as Texas or Florida.

There are other suits by Kiwami if you are not looking for a back-zip single piece suit.

The Kiaman is a front zipper suit that still provides all the comfort and speedy feel of the amphibian, but also a pad for longer races.
Also, the Prima Top and Bottom combination provide a great two piece suit to keep cool in a long course style event.

Lastly, here is a shot of the suit I wore for the majority of the 2012 season including the 2012 USAT Elite Nationals in Buffalo, NY.
