Orca Sports Bag
The Orca Sports Bag is an ideal multipurpose bag, which can be used for everything from going to the gym, to taking your gear to and from transition.
An array of practical compartments includes storage for shoes, music player, mobile phone, laptop and garments/towels, while the neoprene construction is durable and water resistant.
Reflective piping provides visibility when you’re using the bag in low light conditions, while the soft handle and strap and buckle fasteners on the chest and waist keep the bag comfortable and secure.
226 TRI TOP
The Orca 226 Tri Top is designed for those who want to train or race without compromise in a garment that has sleeves for increased protection from the elements.
The top uses Orca's Vapour-Cool fabric, which uses nano crystals embedded in the fibre to naturally conduct heat away from the body, keeping you cool. Used across the entire front and lower back of the Tri Tank the cross-section yarn construction enhances moisture wicking and dries quickly.
This highly breathable fabric also contains silver ions that are antibacterial and deodorizing, and anti-allergy, making it ideal for longer distance racing and use in hot conditions. Orca's Tri-Enduro mesh fabric is on the back of the top for breathability and wicking.
The UPF50+ protection offered by all fabrics used in this top makes it ideal for race days when you're out in the elements for long periods of time. The top also has a slightly longer cut at the back for increased coverage when cycling and running. There is a 3-coil front control zip with zip top cover, two storage pockets, and reflective logos for visibility in low light conditions.

Orca is a manufacturer that can trace its roots back to New Zealand in the early 90's. Scott Unsworth competed in triathlons and believed he could design greater wetsuits than were currently available. Starting the business in his parents house he developed wetsuits which were more flexible and buoyant than other existing wetsuits.
The company went from strength to strength growing more popular amongst triathletes. Hamish Carter was one of the first athletes to sign up for the company, today known as Orca, and for over a decade became one of the most renowned triathletes in the world – earning a gold medal along the way at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.
Like its beginnings, Orca have not lost its motivation to innovate triathlon clothing and continues to be a market leader in the triathlon market.
