Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I will admit, surfing the Oregon coast I was not cold in this suit. However, the difficulty getting it on and even more so off was more than I could handle. Fortunately the waves weren't big enough to zap all my energy or I may have had to sleep in the thing. I was an absolute bear to take off. It was also tough to paddle in. There needs to be some sort of stretch panels in the shoulders. Five stars for warmth, one for the other issues. I have worn enough suits to know that there are some better cold water options. I ended up going with a Rip Curl suit.
