i bought this suit and it was amazing, it kept me very warm in the arctic, at one point i was wearing only a pair of shorts and a t shirt under this suit. the best so far in my books. Eaven for layering under the suit its great, have good room. also with this suit i find i can bend over and get on all fours and its great its not baggy or loose like alot of then suits i have. its a really good snug fit wich i like. I have also slept in the suit and its wonderfull because your warm and dont get cold. also at home when it was very cold outside i put my suit on and whent and lied down in the snow it did the job and i would recomend this suit to anyone.
I took this to Rio and it kept me amazingly warm on the white sandy beaches. Also it is a great fashion statement...seriously though...if you are wearing this you probably are thinking about how much oxygen to bring! This is like a four season sleeping bag with arms and legs...the gold standard...from what I've heard.!
