The 2/1mm Quiksilver Syncro Short John is great for sports that require maximum freedom of movement. The sleeveless nature of a short john removes all of the restriction from the arms and shoulders, and the entire suit is made of "hyperstretch" neoprene which is lightweight and very flexible. Also features durable flatlock stitched seams, a full length back zipper for easy entry & exit, and a convenient key loop.
Quiksilver wetsuits come with a 1 year warranty on materials and craftsmanship. You can help keep your wetsuit in great shape for years to come by always rinsing in fresh water and hanging to dry. A number of wetsuit care products can be found on our Wetsuit Accessories page.

I don't know why more guys don't wear suits without sleeves. Far more freedom when paddeling. Paddle better, catch more waves, have more fun.
As a swim coach and instructor, even though the water is 79 to 80 after 1-2 hours in the water during the winter, this suit is perfect.

This suit is SICK!
Performs about as expected
The suit kept me comfortable for as long as I wanted to swim in mid-70s water. Other than 1. and 2. below, I rarely noticed the suit while I was wearing it. I had two small complaints about the suit and one about the website:
1. I won't buy another suit with a low neckline. Water tended to flow into the front of the large neck hole when I swam quickly. Maybe this was a function of my swimming posture, but the suit seemed to fit well otherwise.
2. I was taking pictures so was moving my arms in front of my chest a lot, sometimes quickly. This caused some scraping rash at the edge seam where the suit ended at the sides of my chest. I used the suit for several days and noticed the abrasions only because I saw them. I never really felt it, but I expect I would have been hurting a bit if I used it every day for a week or so. I might try short sleeves next time, depending on the seam locations.
3. This is a Wetsuit Warehouse problem, but the suit pictured (as of 1/5/09) is not what is being sold and delivered. I thought I was getting a suit with full nylon/lycra outer shell (and a little color), but that's not what came. The suit I received is solid black and has exposed neoprene chest. Customer service claimed that the chest surface was "wind guard" or something like that, which seemed odd, as I didn't think neoprene was essentially wind-proof in the first place. Maybe I'm wrong. In any case, I was stuck with it, as I had ordered late and was packing for the water the day after the suit arrived.
Fit like a glove
However hesitant I was to order wetsuits online, this one was a perfect match. True to size and very comfortable.
Comfortable and Functional
This suit is perfect for warmer waters. Whether you are snorkeling, surfing or diving it is very true to the fit chart (I took an XL), very well made and so far showing great durability. Having half legs and total arms without restriction is a comfort feature I enjoy. From jetski to any activity, it served well and dried nice, packed away well and was a great purchase. From beginning snorkeler to advanced diver, this suit serves very well in the warmer water.
