I don't know how the TYR website can say that this zipper-back chest covered male "short john" http://www.tyr.com/shop/tracer-light-zipperback-short-john-p-1076.html is FINA approved.

This suit is probably approved for open water swims. The list of FINA approved suits is shown at:

I don't see this suit on the list. However, the list of approved suits for 2012 will be published on December 31, 2011.

You're right Barry, my first reaction is seemingly always pool related, not open water, since I don't go there often - if at all.
