 Speedo Splice FastSkin Jammer Review
Speedo Splice FastSkin Jammer : A Step Up I previously reviewed the Speedo Endurance Jammer, which is a slippery yet hearty thigh-length suit virtually impervious to the debilitating effects of chlorine—a great suit, especially for training.
Though I’m not sure the Speedo Splice FastSkin Jammer can be expected to live as long a life as the Endurance, it is in all other ways a superior suit.
Soon after getting out of the pool, I’ve noticed that the suit is already approaching dry; a few seconds in the spinner, and it truly is. Such a quick-drying fabric would do well for a run or bike right out of the pool.
