    wetsuit opinions!!!

    Hey guys, ive been looking for a new 3/2 wetsuit, but i dont want to spend more than 250$, I can wear WEST: gives me bad stomach rash, even with rash guards. i cant wear BILLABONG: i gives me rashes on the back of my armpit. What do you guys think, ive been thinking of and O'neill, but which one is the best? Or if you have an old one tell me.

    Which West, Nitro or Fluid?

    IMHO: My West Fluid Lotus 3/2 is the best suit I have ever worn. It is like butter, super stretchy, warm, and is an easy on/off. It's about $270 and has a lifetime Guarantee.

    Is it the Rip Curl Core Fireskin? If so, I had the same problem with the neck burn, but a little vaseline pretty much took care of it. I love that suit, so comfortable it's like surfing in pajamas. I picked mine up for over 200, but just saw it online for less if you want to check it out:

    Check whiskeymilitia. They have a 3/2 or a 4/3 xcel infinity the past couple of days in multiple sizes and colors for around $150.00.

    Just gotta keep your eyes open.

    Try an Oneill suit. I've never had a problem with them. I had a cheap quiksilver 3/2 and it was awful.
