    i would say absolutely! that's a great deal on a great suit.

    i have a 42 1/2in chest and a 29in waist so what ever suit i get will be loose in the waist. is that a really bad thing and if the limbs are too long, is it ok to just cut the extra length?

    i wouldn't cut the length...it'll be useful when you've got thicker gloves & booties on. less possibility of the limbs slipping off or getting pushed off during a wipe out & letting water in.

    I'm not completely sure how good patagonias are, but I;d rather spend 200ish on a brand new xcel, rip curl etc than 500+ for a pat

    i dunno...that seems it'd be an issue. the extra space would fill w/ water & flush out pretty easily, making it harder to keep warm.
    if you can, i'd say go try it on & see how it fits & what you think of it. personally, i'd be more concerned w/ the waist than the extra length in the arms & legs.

    always have been an X-cell guy. but decided to try something new had extra cash and needed a new 3/2 so I went with the Matuse Hoplite..well worth the $450. Fits me better than any suit I have ever owned and feels like butter!! Gonna get a Tumo for the winter! Its a warm suit but more than anything It just fits me perfectly and is super light.

    Just picked that up off whiskey yesterday.

    got a 3/2 ripcurl dawn patrol- its got a good fit besides the neck which is a little bit loose.. and its not all that warm.

    5/4 o'neill mutant- highly recommend this suit. fairly priced, very warm, great quality, easy to get in and out of, no armpit rashes, and the hood can be removed for when it gets a bit warmer or on those knee-waist high clean sunny days when you dont need to duckdive. going on my 4th winter with it. the thing has seen a lot of use cuz i would go right from my 3/2 to the 5/4 cuz i didnt have a 4/3. getting a little thin in a couple areas, so this will probably be my last winter with it.

    Anyone have an O'Neill Epic II 3/2? Looking to get a new 3/2 and this looks like a good option for the money. Any thoughts?

    Thanks!
