    I've been wearing an xcel hooded drylock for the last 3 winters. I bought the first one a few years ago and liked it so much that I bought another last year. I usually use a discount site like seshday to get them around $250.
    On the super cold days, I'll through a shirt on underneath, but i'm usually good for 2 hours if there are waves to keep the paddling up. Also wear wool socks under the boots.

    I've been wearing xcel exclusively for the last 6+ years....thinking about switching it up to Oniel or rip curl sometime.

    Just picked up a Rip Curl Flash Bomb 4/3 zipless. Tried it on, but haven't had it in the water, yet. There is a noticeable difference between the E4 and the E5. Suite seems lighter and stretchier. Not excited about the cold water, but I am excited bout the new suite!

    Welcome back, Barry! Are the viagra pills giving you boners again? Have you trimmed your outrageously uncontrollable eyebrows?

    got a oneill mutant 5/4. warm but too small

    then got a oneill psycho 5.5/4. went up a size, but it has too much room in it so I froze my ass off for two winters in it and have pretty much given up. I dunno about the techno butter. is real stretchy and thin and easy to paddle in, but if the wind is above 10 mph it feels like it slices right through it. that's just my late fall, early spring suite now

    ordered a Patagonia r4 that I can't wait to try. there boots are the ti**s so figure this thing will be too. this one kind of feels like it's the best fitting that i've found so far (with only trying it on so far, not actually getting in the watere with it)

    also own an xcel 4/3 and that is warm, but again, a little roomy though it's the right length on arms and legs

    ahh fek, barry's back...i'll see yus

    Why?? They seem to offer zero billabong, Xcel, or another offers, other than a larger bill? Just opinion.

    Tried a 3/2 O'Neill Tech-O-Butter full suit; loved lighter and stretchier neoprene for ease getting a suit off my old bones. Amazingly warm for the lighter weight while pricey their worth it.
