If you're considering investing in a wetsuit but still aren't sure if zipping yourself into allover rubber, and triathlons in general, are for you, know that an in-between exists. Blueseventy's Men's Sprint Short will simulate the feel of a full suit, but its simpler design and palatable price tag are far less committing than a full suit.
Its Yamamoto neoprene construction is the same as that used on Blueseventy's full wetsuits, which means you'll get a similar lift in the hips and improvement in buoyancy that you would if you were using a full wetsuit. The benefits will be subtler, of course, as the short covers a far smaller area, but you'll still improve your efficiency while you're swimming. If you do ultimately decide the world of swim/bike/run just isn't for you, the Sprint can replace a pull buoy in the pool during your regular training swims.

- I've used it several times
good fit and feel but I had to return to get the right fit. I am 5'7" 131lbs and bout an S but it was somewhat baggy at the waist and was causing drag even when cinched with draw string. Provides just a little flotation so a little more of a wetsuit feel for training. I like it a little better than a jammer for that fact. It it neoprene and about as thick as a wet suit so keep that in mind if you think that would be to hot for you in a pool.

Are the sprint shorts true to size ? I’m a 31” waist, quads around 28”... This is my first time purchasing for a triathlon, I’m a newbie
