We are looking to get 3/2 full suits to take us from May to Sept.
The surf shops suits range from 75.00- 300.00. Can anyone recommend a good suit within a reasonable price range?

What is the best 3/2 full suit?
i have a 1 1/2 yr old rip curl fireskin that takes me through late november. its worth it to pay more and get a good quality suit that will last you up to 5 years (if you don't get fat and if you take care of it) then to get some used piece of garbage.
ive got a 3 yr old 3/2 quiksilver syncro that i use from late april to late june, then from october to early december....not top of the line money wise, but i love the suit and it does the job

sorry but you guys just gotta man up in late spring and early fall. its not that cold if you dont think about it
Extreme, I will answer this for you without all the fuss.........There are many suits on the market that will meet your requirements. 1st, The fit is most important. Different suits will fit you slightly different so try on two or three brands and buy the one that feels the best. 2nd, I would recommend one level down from the top of the line for this time of year or the best that you can afford. You will still want sealed seams. 3rd, everyone will offer you different opinions as to which brand is best, as long as you stay with a well known company and don't buy an entry level suit, you will be OK. I personally would recommend an O'neill Physco 1 or and Excel, but fit is the key. Wash it out after every use, don't dry it in the sun, and hang it up when not in use and it will last many years. I have suits that are 3 and 4 years old that are in good condition and are used almost daily. Hope this helps.

Get yourself a 3/2 infinity excel or a West... IMO there the best suits.

I have never regretted buying a good suit and have kicked myself in the ass for buying crappy ones!! Go for the Infinity

I definately agree with you guys on getting the XCEL Infinity Series, definately a good suit. But my opinion, if you don't mind spending a few extra bucks on a solid 3/2, get a Body Glove Vapor. As soon as I got my first 4/3 Vapor about a year ago, I have since switched all of my suits to the Vapor including my 3/2, 2/2, and my 5/4. The water repellant technology allows you to stay incredibly warm in conditions where you might not have in an average suit.
