I'm looking for a 5/4 hooded suit for this winter but i'm currently lacking the cash to go get a new one so i figured i'd start looking early and see if anyone had any used ones for sale. I'm looking for a size M,MS,MT. I live in Monmouth County NJ and i'd prefer to stay close. Let me know what you have. Thanks in advance!!

Looking for a wetsuit

Just got a hooded 5/4 XCEL Drylock from Whiskey Militia for half price. I think I only paid around $240 for it and that suit is by far the top of their line. I only intend to wear it during the couple coldest months at most but couldn't say no to that deal. You figure your suit for the coldest water you'll be in may as well be the warmest and least permeable (rips and holes, not all water) suit you have. I plan on using it sparingly so it should last a couple years.
Tried it on today and it fits very well. I'm a LS in 3/2 to a 5/4 in that brand and an XLS in a 6/5 from them, don't ask me why I'm sure that's just how they run. Always try the suit on and if that wasn't so damn cheap I'd have bought it from my local shop like I have the others. Not sure what brand you prefer but I got it last week and it looked like they still had a few in most sizes available. If you're interested in that then look on their site throughout the day until you see it.
Half price for a brand new suit will almost always be a better buy than a used suit that's been pissed in and stretched out by a person that's likely trying to collect as much as they can and basing their asking price off the original MSRP. If your local shops are running season closeout deals then strongly consider them. Who knows, maybe you'll get a great deal on a used one and my 6/5 was an anomaly as it was nearly new and only $100 but I got lucky by finding it. Watch out for those "gently used" and "new-used" suits...

Whiskey Militia, Sesh Day, Wetsuit Warehouse. Just be a bit obsessive and you will find good sales online.
whiskey militia has been posting some incredible deals on the xcel suits. I saw a 4/3 infinity for 189 bucks the other day.

Thanks for all the suggestions i'll definitely look into that. I've been waiting on sales and checking seshday daily to see if their "anita's stash" wetsuit section got anything new. But i'll definitely keep an eye out i appreciate it! And SurfingOC912, how much are you charging for shipping?
i got a older xcel 5/4 hooded job ill throw you for free if you like. its got a tear in the shoulder. if you can fix and and your actually going to use it its all yours. i believe its a MS.
