Looking to get a new 5/4/3 wetsuit. Want something that is pretty warm but really comfort and stretchyness is largest priority for me as I rarely go in extremely cold water. Having a connected hood and the rubber glued water tight seams is mandatory.

Would like to hear some of your favorites!! Thanks

I have the hooded Excel Dryloc super duper winter suit - it is extremely warm, but of a pig tto get in and out of. Personally I wouldn't but another one because of my riding style (ie manic!!) I spend a lot of time falling off/crashing/under water/body dragging and the front entry system lets in water but the biggest issue is that that hood lets water in which goes straight down the back of my neck :( I'd rather have a good neck seal and buy a separate hood.

Saying that my mate who just miss the grass all day swears by his :thumb:

I recently purchased an O'Neill Pyrotech 5.5/4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit and absolutely love it! Had no idea I could be that warm.

Quote:
Attached Hood

F.U.Z.E Front Upper Zip Entry with Code Red Zipper and Drain Holes

Single Fluid Seam Weld(Watertight Stitchless Technology) - Keeps water from entering at all seams and critical points.

Technobutter & Technobutter-Air Firewall Neoprene - The most advanced super stretch neoprene available on the market. 20% lighter, 30% less water absorption with quick dry properties.

Super Seal Cuffs - O'Neill's new Super Seal Cuff is fused to create a very low profile at the cuff ending creating the best seal ever.
