So far so good
The wet suit has been great so far. I’m staying warm and it’s really stretchy so I’m not feeling a lot of resistance when i paddle
Great Customer Service
Great business model gents. Also, great customer service [Thanks Rob]. Love talking to real people keen to help. 100% recomended if you’re looking for a great suit without ‘branded’ price point. Keep it up!
Nice fit. Great quality suit
Fits well.Super lite and stretchy. Just hard to get in and out of neck entry. I am used to xcel. Just a different suit. Me likey!
Based on the way the size men’s small 4/3 steamer fit, I then bought a small 3/2 steamer. It did not fit as tight nor as good as the 4/3. I could tell the 4/3 would be too warm for 59 deg F water temp so I tried the 3/2. Usually a brand new suit is very warm for the first few sessions, especially the first session, even a 3/2 in 59 deg F water temp. I froze that session. I’ve worn a brand new 2/2 Hurley in 59 deg F water temp and was super warm for the first 5 sessions. I think the needessentials 3/2 steamer I bought is not as warm as it could be mostly because it doesn’t fit as tight as I’d like. I am 5’ 9”, 160 pounds and I wish I would’ve got an XS 3/2 instead of a small. I’m bummed I wasted $160 on a new full suit that I can only use in like 65 deg F water temp. In that case, I might as well wear my Hurley short sleeve full suit. Therefore I don’t see myself using my 3/2 needessentials full very often if ever. I have yet to try my 4/3 needessentials steamer. I’m really hoping it works better.
