I have yet to use this wetsuit in the water - seeing as the lakes are still frozen - so I will update this review once I have had a chance to put it through the paces.

Based on just trying it on, the build quality looks good and it fits me well. I'm 6 foot, 175lbs with an slim/athletic frame and the Large is a good fit. I tried a medium but it caused a lot of pressure on the hips and back when sitting. I intend to use this for a cold weather canoe trip and the large arm holes should be great for paddling.

One thing to note on the medium sizing. The Stohlquist website lists two different medium sizes (MD and ML) where as Backcountry only has one: "M". The medium I received was the "MD", which is the smaller of the two. It's possible the "ML" fits better, but I don't know if Backcountry carries that size. May be worth chatting with a backcountry rep if you are on the fence.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have not used this shovel to dig into an avalanche and hope I never have to. However, I have used it a few times this season to dig out my snowmobile when I got stuck. I got to say this thing is awesome for moving a lot of snow FAST with the hoe feature. The initial setup is quick in either orientation. I have found that it can kind of "stick" when switching between hoe and shovel and vice versa but not bad. I've had to chop into some pretty solid wind blown snow and the hoe worked really well for this. I would highly recommend this for snowmobilers for digging out.
