- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: LS
I am no wetsuit connoisseur but after my last trip to the beach I decided it was about 5 years past due for a new suit. I'm sure with waiting this long I would be impressed with just about any wetsuit at any price point but I turned to the web to do my research. I wanted something with more advanced technology in fabrics. I don't get to surf but a couple of times a year due to my landlocked career so I'm a little out of paddling shape every time I get to the beach. This is why stretch was so important to me. My last wetsuit was definitely working against me in the stretch department and it really affected my time in the water. This suit exceeded my expectations in quality, design, fabrics and fit! The only reason these are not sold out is because people do not realize backcountry sells wetsuits.
I was extremely hesitant to order a wetsuit online but Backcountry's price convinced me. Follow the sizing chart and you will not be disappointed. I am 5'9" and 180lbs with a 33 in waist. I purchased the LS and it fits like a glove.
