Finally, a great rear-entry drysuit from Kokatat. That feature alone drew me to this model, along with some well thought out designs features clearly introduced in the Jackson-Kokatat collaboration!
The reinforced sections are beefy (almost all of the orange areas), I mean, I've used this suit to do trail maintenance at put-in/take-out locations as well as some long portages for both rafting and kayaking and not even the faintest hint of wear yet.
It does, however, get dirty quick, this florescent colored get-up will stand out, it's bright, but when your mates are done laughing about it, you'll appreciate the comfort - loose fit and super easy to use new 'T-Zips'.

I haven't experienced any leaking through the zippers and they seem to hold up well so far, despite being far lighter, more flexible and made of plastic.

The sizing is a little on the baggy - larger size, it does give you lots of room to move, but if you're on the bottom end of a size scale maybe consider going to the next size down or getting a custom fitted suit from Kokatat directly.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I supported the project on Kickstarter so I waited eagerly for a while to the my Turtleshell. The thing is surprisingly small and yet packs a punch. After charging it for the first time, all the while constantly examining it and discovering how bombproof and well built this thing is, I quickly paired it with my phone and cranked the beats. It throws noise everywhere in a room and outside, and with excellent full bodied sound and decent bass. Keep in mind the unit works exponentially better when it is placed on a flat hard surface facing up to throw the best sound and use natural acoustic reflexes. It will play nice and loud suspended on a mount nonetheless.

Pros:
-definitely water resistant (stayed out on the field during soccer practice all the time playing tunes).
-Bombproof (have yet to think of a new thing to throw it at)
-Long lasting battery (7 loud hours in my experience)
-looks so darn neat, like a futuristic turtle shell, or somethin'

Cons:
-Distorts bass when both speaker and music device have volume cranked!
-Only works most effective face up on a hard flat surface
-Bluetooth range drops quickly when battery is less than half (I just use aux cord by that point)

Bottom line... You neeed it, get one. Then kick it.
