    not trying to be cocky but price isnt a factor. Im really looking at warmth and flexibility. Since I only shortboard the pataginia scares me a bit from what I am hearing its stiff and that will hurt getting up fast especially in heavier waves.

    My experience with Isurus is completely the opposite. The Isurus feels more flexible to me than any of the big brands (Billa, Rip, etc..)

    Edit: I'm speaking about in the water. They fit tighter and do feel more restrictive out of the water.

    Yeah I don't know. Felt way more laboring than my other suits. Got one a while ago not sure why mine felt so restrictive?

    funny. i was going to start a very similar thread today except i was looking at the r4 vs. hyperflex amp 6/4. the two price extremes of cold water suits. is patagonia really worth the extra cost? i know they make quality stuff and have a great warranty (though if they make really quality stuff, warranty shouldn't be an issue) but i could get 2 amps for the price of one patagonia and still have money left over. price is only an issue if i feel like i'm wasting $. seems like the wool lining in the r4 might be annoying, too.
