    wetsuit BS!!!!

    after weeks of waiting for ANYTHING i pulled my oneill 5/4/3 Heat out of its bin to get ready for dawn patrol, and low and behold it has really bad dry rot around the neck area and it is toen. i think i left it on the heater last time out and it must have melted away the material? wtf...dont be an asshole like me and sit around watching a swell come and go with your **** in your hand, now i have to fork out 500 without the missus knowing...spam for the rest of the winter.

    Not if you go the Hyperflex route like me and Matt. I have the 5/4/3 amp and it is the warmest suit I have ever owned, also the most stretchy suit ever. I paid $260 or so from Wetsuit Warehouse. Sorry for your troubles, hope this helps.

    Yeah no sweat . I just no see the sence in spending 500 bucks for a suit when you can buy something for half the price that is just as good or better in my opinion. Let us know how you make out hopefully you can still get in the water tomorrow

    dude, matt, seriously . you need to get commission for all these people converting. it just doesn't seem fair that you are doing some awesome sales for a company i would otherwise think was **** just because of the name. get me in contact with their VP and i'll recommend you for 10% for every sale you make. beer money.

    Yeah he said he left it by the a heater so it possilbe that caused the Neopreane to dry rot like it did. I just like Hyperflex's stuff plus they are local aswell
