great,thanks...how about the waist issue? is it ok if the waist is about 4-5in too big?
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.
rip-curl 4/3 f-bomb back zip $194.99 worth it? reg. $400
seems like chest zip is the way to go
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.
