    Great price for the amount of rubber you get! Also, WW's customer service was pretty awesome. There was a problem with my order and they went above and beyond to fix it. A+++ for their customer service! Only complaint about the suit is water trickles in around the collar every time I duck dive, no matter how tight I try to fasten the neck. I think if it had one of those "batwing" going from the neck to the bottom of the zipper, that would help shield your body from water that trickled in but you normally see that feature on higher priced suits so in this case, you get what you pay for. I used this in 55-58 degree water and it keeps me warm. When the wind picks up and it's overcast, I can feel a little chill but not where I need to get out. But overall, great suit for the money!

    Needed a good winter wetsuit and was very pleased w/ design and fit. I'm 6'-2" 225lbs. So had to go with the XXXL which is a little loose but very comfortable and keeps me warm. I have not bought a full wetsuit in 5 years and am impressed with the improvements in wetsuit technology. lighter, warmer, more flexable and quick drying. I will be surfing more because of it and that's what it's all about.....

    This wetsuit has been amazing so far. I live in Northern Maine and the water temperature has been in the forties and lower, while the air temperature has been in the twenties (this is for a half-frozen pond and river and I stand up paddleboard on). The dawn patrol has kept me comfortably warm through all of it so far (I also have booties, gloves and a hood). The fit is perfect - I called and talked to a representative at wetsuit warehouse who was extremely helpful and recommended this suit over another I was looking at that may have been a bit too small. I am happy I called and pleased with the excellent customer service. The suit is also very flexible and non-restrictive for paddling and swimming, which I have been doing every day since I got it (yes, everyone up here thinks I am crazy for paddling around in a pond half-full of ice...). The one thing I would recommend is getting a rashguard, as if you are wearing the suit for extended periods of time the seams will begin to chafe from all the movement in your upper-body (true of any wetsuit I have worn so far). Overall it has been a great purchase and I would definitely consider buying it again when it eventually wears out.

    Comfortable and flexible, good value. Feels as good as other high end 5mm. I agree with the post below that the zipper is short, but you can live with it for the price.

    I have only used this suit once so far, but it was in 52 degree water and I was very warm. The only feature I think needs to be be improved upon is the zipper, it's a bit too short for my liking. Also, there was an MSRP tag that was $30.00 less than the website price, leading me to believe that I could probably find it in a retail outlet for less $$.

    Never had a nicer suit, keeps me warm in cold NorCal waters, the shoulder area is super flexible and not restricting, and the suit overall is very light. Extremely pleased.
