Everything you need, and nothing you don't.
The Vissla Men's 7 Seas 3/2 Chest Zip Wetsuit is a great option for shoulder-season shredding or keeping it consistent in the cool, but not quite frigid waters common in Northern California. In designing the 7 Seas series of wetsuits, Vissla aimed to embody a "less is more" philosophy, meaning they prioritized function and only included the bare essentials integral to a top-performing suit. This means that the 3/2 was made with super-stretchy neoprene that supports a full range of athletic motion, keeping you loose and flexible in the water. The folks at Vissla even thought to include a secure attached key loop so you don't need to spend your whole surf sesh wondering if your gear pile on the beach is getting raided.

Good fit. I'm tall and skinny and the xl isn't to big, but its still tall enough. Good movement but I wish the entire inside was the neoprene material. Some of the inside material is almost like a wool which is warm but it get a little itchy when your not in the water. Runs a little small.
Nice Suit, Great Price

Great wetsuit. I ordered it during a super sale from backcountry. Can’t beat the price. Arrived quickly. I trimmed my suit with scissors and added some drain holes with a hot nail, too long in the legs and the ends fit too snug to drain.
Backcountry sent me the wrong suit.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I ordered the Vissla 7 Seas 3/2 - Black Fade wetsuit. Backcountry totally sent me the wrong suit. They sent me the 4/3 version of this suit. I was totally bummed. Especially since I had a surf trip lined up. Hopefully if you order this suit you will get the right one. Good luck.
