Anyone have experience with these suits? If so, what do you think?
I think they are long gone....I did like them a lot.
Had one for about a month now, 4/3 back zipper. Early days but seems great for the money. Only slight niggle the back zip flaps get caught on zip when you are trying to zip up. Apart from that seem as well made as suits twice the price.
Rumour has it it's the same blokes from E-ssen-tial that went belly up in 2010 after trying the same thing with Matuse-level neoprene. Two of my mates picked up the 4/3s and love them. About the same quality as a mid-line O'neill or Excel.
Lighter and warmer than my Patagonia ever was.
My buddy had a 3/2. It was great. Same suit, as was said above, as a mid-level Xcel. Stretchy and warm and incognito. Great stuff!
How about fit for those of us that aren't model slim (as in overweight old guys)? Would love a chest chest zip but afraid I'll never be able to get into it. Think a back zip might work. Tried a Patagonia chest zip and could never get into it, wouldn't like to repeat that experience.
Ned, I can't get into a 5/4 Chest zip Patagonia due to shoulder injuries, and also being old and fat. Need only go up to 4/3 on the back zip but super easy to get on and off (except for the zipper niggle), I'm still wearing mine here and we're getting chilly…
Resurrecting this thread to see if there are any new or updated opinions on these suits. I am in the market and am considering one of these or a gently used R2. All insight welcome.
Got a 3/2 fast dry chest zip
Decent suit & excellent value for the money. As above, like a mid range “normal” brand. Easy enough to get on and off and holding up well so far. There are probably warmer 3/2s out there for more moolah
