honestly, I try to keep my 3/2 at around $100. I currently have a ripcurl that was $89. I have had this one for 3 years and use it a lot in the late spring and early fall.

Now my winter suit is a different story, for them you have to get one that is very sealed or else you will freeze. just my .02
