I've always preferred xcel suits, boots and gloves for the reason that they last for me. Also, they fit and the they are warm. Even there lower end products are warm. Contrary to what others have said I've had good customer service with xcel. I've sent my suits back after a few years of use and they have reinforced and re-glued seams. I'd rather gets wetsuits from a company that only makes wetsuits, rather than one that focuses on making cool t shirts. Just my opinion.
