This tech suit starting falling apart at the seams-literally- after one swim meet. The stitching was falling out and I found loose threads in multiple spots. On the plus side, Arena and team aquatics came through and replaced the suit deeming it as defective.. The material is thinner than the other arena ST tech suits and I am not convinced that this suit is going to hold up for very long. It is advertised as being more durable but I guess only time will tell.I sure hope that the replacement for the defective suit lasts longer than one swim meet this time. The suit has a nice look to it and the fit is good just like the original "arena ST" but I don't think I would buy "Arena ST Next" suits again unless it proves to be more durable then I am expecting it to be.
