Familiarity: I've used it several times

I spoke to the HQ reps, drove to the HQ to drop off my suit for repair when it was under warranty, and waited without a suit in cold winter water for my repairs to be finished, and again the product came apart in less than 3 months. I have had the suit for less than a year, and all the glue came apart everywhere from the outside and inside. Home Depot neoprene cement is stronger than the crap this company uses. I live in a surf community and speaking to others XCEL is not a durable, or popular product with them. The neck hole that you get into the suit from stretches out within the first 2 months. All the glue of my panels has fallen off. I can see my body from the outside of the suit. It no longer prevents water from entering. I will never buy XCEL again. This company is a awful representation of a Hawaiian product from a place where surfing is more popular than where I am from. So I wasted over a hundred bucks. Learn from my mistake do not buy anything from XCEL.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

Definitely not as good looking, or constructed of the same high quality material as the Pipeline version. It has the same nice Rip Curl system for calculating tide. The band is stiff and plasticy. Feels ultra lightweight and gets questions because of the yellow black color scheme.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This watch rocks. The Rip Curl design is great for telling the tide and setting up the watch. The band is a really soft and comfortable to wear material. Its slightly heavier than the cheaper models and can take a beating. I would have bought it again if they had it. Mine had the inside plastic lining flipped outward for a quarter of the watch. It was hardly noticeable and didn't effect anything but I got annoyed of noticing it and sent it back. Worth buying for sure if your a waterman.

I've used the suit for waters 58 and warmer. It worked well and is true to size. The construction does not look solid at first but it is holding up pretty good so far. I don't know how warm it is for 55 and under. It doesn't have a fuzzy chest layer for really cold conditions. Water is seeping through the lower leg area during duck dives. Not enough to fill the suit but noticeable once your warm inside. For the price it's a decent suit.

First off the zipper requires a buddy to unzip. My friend told me it was catching in the extra neoprene flap. The zipper is really hard to zip in the first place. The area right in the arch of the back slowly seeps in water. The neck Velcro kept coming off and I only wore it 3 times. Maybe I got a bad one. Otherwise it was warm in 63 deg water. It's true to size so if your a little chubby it won't fit right.

I use these in my running shoes and I had ACL reconstruction 8 months ago. I had a tough time getting back into running because it was hard on my knee. But after putting these insoles in the impact is less stressful on my knees and its helped me get back into running. Aside from its shock absorbency my feet are more comfortable are pain free standing for long durations. Overall these are a must buy if your really active and are on your feet a lot in activity or life. I used the size E in my 10.5 asics kayano 14 without any cutting they slipped right in.

I bought one of the first models of the Sanuk sandal shoes, and they lasted me 2 years before I threw it away and got one of these new ones in black. They lack arch's and cant be considered a shoe in any means so dont expect to walk down steep hills, or do things you would normally do in a shoe. Ive worn mine to the beach, at the gym when I lift weights, to cancun, to Las Vegas. For the last 4 months I think the only thing Ive worn on my feet outside have been these sandals. They hold up really good and are comfortable on your arch's once you get them worn in. Buy them one size smaller then what you wear and they will fit.

These are the best glasses for look, function, and durability. Ive had mine for 4 years now. They've been to many different beaches, mountains, nations. These glasses will hold up and you can were them for years to come and still look good.

These glasses look good and fit snug. The crystal black is more like a clear black. Its see through I didn't expect that. I thought it would be more of a gloss black. The picture for the crystal black is not at all what the frame of the glasses looks like. Otherwise its a sick pair of shades. I'm keeping them anyways. They come with iridium lenses that are much better then stock gray lenses.
