Good suit, with the exception of the neck, which is too loose and water flushes sometimes.
I honestly didn't know what to expect as I don't know anyone with one of these and couldn't try it on, but the suit is totally solid. Very warm, fits wells, seems high quality and way worth the price.

Great Value, Quality Product, One Caveat
This suit was going to be a backup to my O'Neill Mutant (5/4). I was stoked when it arrived and decided it was directly comparable in quality and build to the Mutant but at a much lower price point. ($380 or so to $200). No logos or gimmicks with needsessential, just high quality at an affordable price. The caveat is to be found in the entry. The shoulder zip top entry is the wrong choice for this suit. It needs a full zip top entry flap that gives one more room at the entry point. When you're dealing with 4mil neoprene the lack of stretch needs to be considered. The company says the neoprene will stretch but until that happens it is a real chore getting in and out of this suit. There is a bit of an offset though. Wearing a long sleeve, polyester rash guard makes it easier to get in and out of the suit. If you can deal with the caveat this suit is an excellent, high quality product that will definitely keep you warm and last multiple seasons. On another note...service and support are incredible. Company rep Rob quickly responded to all my queries about the three products I purchased.
