    Best online sites for wetsuits

    Don't want to start another thread for wetsuits...
    I have never ordered online.I always felt the need to try it on before buying.Have you had good results with buying online? Do you find that the price is significantly better? Sizing?

    What sites offer the best bang for buck?

    I used wetsuitwarehouse.com, coincidentally for a hyperflex 5/4/3 plus some boots. I had no problems.Normally l try to support the local businesses, however I needed this in the middle of winter when my local shops are closed for the season.

    I bought a Patagonia R4 from a shop in Oregon this spring on sale. Never having tried one on, I called the store and asked how they sized up compared to O'neill. The guy told me they were just a touch smaller. I said my suits are O'neill large and they fit me pretty well, I'll take a large. He asked me my height and weight. I said 5'10" 145. He said Whaaaaaaat? You want a large? They're for guys like 180. It fits almost perfectly. Ask if you can return it and don't cut the tags off right away.

    Whiskey Militia is half price these days for just about all suits they post. Get on it. To score an XCEL Drylock of any thickness at half off is the best investment you'll make in your equipment.

    I buy suits online sometimes, but I know pretty well from experience which brands' sizes fit me how. Go to a shop and try on a few (and if they're not corporate d-bags, buy it there and support!) and figure out what works for you.
