Whew! I'd ordered an acid green Powerskin Carbon Pro last week, only to be unable to get it above mid thigh (size 32). Overnighted a return and exchange for a LZR Racer Elite 2. Glad I did, otherwise I would have been up a creek!!
The latest wrinkle in this story is that USA Swimming is going to allow the suits until June 3rd!
That's great Kirk! Now, if only I could afford one, I could use it for our home USA-S LCM meet here in Wenatchee, Apple Capital, which ends on June 2nd.

I found the Arena website less than helpful.Evidently there is supposed to be some place to take or send the suit,but I couldn't find on the site where.I assume people at Nats can turn them in there,but it says it will take 8 wk to get the new suit.
