yep, they don't make em like they did before, that's for sure.
Nice and soft but fall apart in a couple of years :(
Back in the day a suit would get a little stiff after a couple of years but could go for a longer time for sure.
Also, it's lame most Co's are too cheap now to go with the smooth skin as much as before, now most are mainly covered in that jersey crap that falls apart, and doesn't keep you as warm, no matter the hype.
Waaaa. Ok got that out of my system. ;)

I think the super stretch suits are more stressful on seams, so it's a little expected to have separations. The taped and glued suits are best. It's always a good idea to have some neoprene cement handy and tackle the seams as soon as they start to open. Unfortunatley nothing is indestructible or permanent, and there are tradef-offs for the super stretchy neoprene. Recently I pulled out an old Promotion 5/4 steamer suit (almost 20 years old) and it looks pretty good, but it has shrunk so much and is so stiff I would never get it on. Now with the super stretch I'll be happy to get 3 years out of them.
