fits great and holds warm

I got a size M and it fits me nicely (I am 173 cm at 73 kg). I am using it for surfski paddling and its been great so far. I also got the 3 mm for when it gets colder. In addition am using Sealskin stockings for keeping the feet dry.

Very good quality and a great value

I use this primarily for dinghy sailing on the ocean in the U.S. Pacific Northwest. An ideal thickness with a broad temperature range; with plenty of warmth for long submersions in cold water and wet sailing, but not too hot on anything but the hottest days mid summer. Great attention to detail, looks fantastic and very stylish but with no compromises on functionality. A truly great value for your money.

Fit Tips

If one of your body measurements is in between two sizes, order the smaller size for a tighter fit or the larger size for a looser fit. If your body measurements for hips and waist correspond to two different suggested sizes, order the one indicated by your hip measurement.

How To Measure

WAIST: Measure around the narrowest part (typically where your body bends side to side), keeping the tape horizontal.
HIPS: Measure around the widest part of your hips, keeping the tape horizontal.
CHEST: Measure the fullest area of your chest. Stand up straight and breath normally.
