    Quiksilver wetsuits

    I generally always buy a RipCurl wetsuit when it's time for a new one but I found a Quiksilver one that fit really good and cost quite a bit less. Anybody out there wear a Quiksilver suit and have anything good or bad to say about them? I'm just looking for a \"cheaper\" 3/2 to get me through the warmer winter months.

    Brahs...didn't you read the sign at the door?? It reads: NO WETTY THREADS

    The three of you are pardoned because of the namesake of the second poster. Quite a fine name.

    Hands down the best suit I have ever owned was the Xcel Infinity I bought last year! Not saying there aren't other good ones out there, however as far as wetsuits I have bought and tested this one by far is superior! (and I have gone through a lot of suits)

    I actually bought my son one first and after he let me try it I ran to the surf shop to buy one for myself! Not only does it keep you super warm but its like having nothing on! Its super light and flexible! I would prefer back zips but I will make the sacrifice. This suit is just that good!

    This year I'm going with the Xcel Revolt Therodry!!!

    Yeah man a lot of dudes were pi$$ed after the d ick's sale on quik suits, said they'd never buy them again. I have no personal experience w/ quiksilver suits...O'neill, rip curl and xcel gear has all worked well for me.

    Hey Emass, one thing i've noticed, you are using alot of "surfer" vocabulary like brah for instince. Do you just think its cool or do you really, seriously talk like that all the time? Don't take it too seriously, i mean, it doesn't annoy me or anyone else probably.

    Same, I guess it doesn't really matter that I missed that sale. Although, it WAS only 57 bucks. I mostly stick to oneill and xcel boots and gloves. Actually all three of my suits are oneill (mutant (use it all winter) youth epic 3/2, and an s/s full back zip) and i'm thinking of getting a more heavy duty ripcurl suit. Probably not an f bomb, but i've been looking at the e bomb 5/4 youth. I also recently purchased a pair of 7 mil. oneill booties. Can't wait to use them. What about hyperflex suits like this one:thumb.jpg. Does anyone have any experience with these? It wouldn't suit me though because if you wear a fn american flag wetsuit you gotta rip. I'm better off with black.

    I've got a Quik Cypher 4/3 that I love, super warm and flexible. Just a bit of a pain in the ass to get on and off.
