2010 Model No Longer Available
Orca Core Tri Tank - Sleeveless - Men's - 2010 BCS
When you tear open the package on your doorstep to reveal the Orca Menís Core Tri Tank, your ever-patient life partner will know that your former triathlon hobby has blossomed into a full-blown obsession. This jersey sees you through every stage of the race, boosting your performance with every arm stroke, pedal stroke, and stride. Its AquaGlide panels repel water so you can glide through it like a slippery eel, and Vapor panels breathe like mad when you're sweating on land. Orca recently lengthened the torso, increasing body coverage for better insulation and muscle compression. A concealed center front zip lets you blow off some steam during the running or cycling segments, and a lower back pocket stores your carbs.

The material has a snug compression fit. I like it better than the 226 singlet. It's more comfortable, forming to your body without chafing or annoying rubs. After putting it on you may have to adjust the arm wholes etc. The singlet does unzip fairly far and it'll hold water sponges in there if you run Macca style. The pockets are great-covered but still not a pain to access whether in a race or your long run. The material dries fast as well and helps to cool you down in the heat. The size chart is spot on. As luck would have it I fall at the high end of the medium and the low end of the large. I bought the medium and it's snug but not uncomfortable. I am buying the large just out of curiosity and will post about it when I try it out. I'm not expecting any drastic opinion change. If you measure yourself honestly (no sucking in or pulling the tape tight) go with the size chart. One of the other reviewers said it takes a little work to get on- it does, but not anymore than any compression style top. Again- GREAT SINGLET!

The other review here that gave it two stars just bought entirely the wrong product. It's explicitly made for racing tris (which means being snug enough to swim in sans wetsuit if need be), and the size chart is dead on. It can take a little work to get on, but it's really not bad.
I've raced this in several tris, on road and off, sprint distance to a full ironman, and love it. It's cut longer than most race tops, preventing the tramp-stamp sunburn and the belly-shirt look on the run. Very comfortable, love the covered pockets, and the zipper goes down plenty far for dumping some heat.
