Good Steamer hood could use some changes

hood fits great, however the visor flap may as well not be there as it just hangs right over your brow and impedes one's vision.

Perfect Suit for Getting Pitted

When I see super stacked wavies forming on the beach in NJ, all I want to do is put on this gnarly wet suit and get pitted forever man! This suit keeps me toasty like a teacup. I can ride icicle waves but I stay warm and alert to ride epic rails bros. Thanks for the product. Well Done

5/4 hooded steamer

Suit is warm and comfortable, been wearing it in windy 50 degree water the past couple weeks and I'm super happy with it. I don't see myself ever buying any other branded suit again. There's no reason to ever do that. Nice work!

functional and warm

hesitated on buying this suit for a couple months. finally did and I couldn't be happier. definitely regretting not buying it sooner. seamed and sealed inside holds up and hasn't seemed to wear through. doesn't feel as thick as a 5/4 since it allows plenty of flexibility, but keeps me completely warm in the water. Never ordered a suit true to size and I'm glad I did, fits perfectly. probably wont be buying suits anywhere else after this purchase. Great stuff!



Used for about a month, already some leaks in seams on legs, and the hood zipper flushes every time I duck-dive. Otherwise, I stay warm, just worry the suit won’t last me too long. I have a history of being rough in suits, maybe it’s just me :/
