    I am still using a hyperflexx 4/3, a little warm but since I don't have a 3/2, it gets me by. I get the same chaffing really bad, all you need to do is coat your neck with body glide, takes care of the chaffing no problem.

    Thumbs up

    A wetsuit shouldn't make you that crazed, dude.

    Yah, some of the wetsuit executions of the designs suck ass & irritate the neck.

    IMHO....slather the bodyglide or pig's grease or whatever on that rubber & just surf & be glad that you're in the ocean, 'cause it's a gift.

    And maybe go get laid? Sounds like you're backed up. Things sound tense over there.

    honestly put a piece of duct tape over the seam that is bothering you. I wouldn't use Vasoline or anything that could eat the rubber. You could also try putting a piece of duct tape on your NECK which would probably work better.

    vaseline kills suits, don't use it. ever since i have been getting suits with the slickskin material on the collar, i haven't had this problem.
