Talked with Kirk about this suit after practice. I believe, this suit will survive and won't be on banned list. Anyone has this one?

That Arena site reminds me of the one for the TYR Titan. Not much info on where to buy the suit or even if we can buy it!

Arena suits had a small but dedicated following here in the U.S. up until a few years ago when they decided to stop distributing their suits here.

Before the Olympics last year I was convinced the Speedo LZR would be the death knell for several of the smaller manufacturers. Turns out the opposite is true. Not that Arena is new, but who knew about Blue Seventy or Jaked before 2008?

I went "crawling" for an Arena before Texas last year and couldn't find one so ended up with another FSII. I had an Arena about 2 years earlier and really liked it.

I like TYR for the fit & price.

when i went to school in germany, this was the late 80's. arena was an off shoot of adidas. puma was across the street. now that's another story.
anyway, just got back from munich and did not notice too many arena's there. i used to buy arena suits in italy and paris. speedo right now has a strong market for women's suits in europe. the speedo's sold there are thiner (no liner) and are prettier colors. don't know about the men's suits.
i saw some old powerskins on www.lungbusters.com:)

Colors would be nice, other than black/blue

I picked up one of Arena's original Powerskins a few years ago before Arena left the U.S. It has held up remarkably well, although it is starting to show its age.
