This fits like a second skin. I can wear a thinner wetsuit for longer surfing. Keeps warmer in winter. Easy to get on and off. Absolutely an essential item in my wetsuit collection. My second one in 10 years.
Light weight and flexible vest feels good on and allows free movement to swim. The vests have a flattering shape with the blue and the red tops having inserts under the arms.
I am pleased with my purchases and recommend others to try.
These rashies are by far the warmest you can get. I don't love the cold water at all but with this rashie I am still surfing in boardies and it is nearly May.
If the water gets freezing you can wear it under your steamer. The rashie is as warm as a spring suit I recon.
Best thing about these is the extreme light weight and flexibility - paddling feels like you're wearing just a rash top. OK not super warm - not as warm as 1.5 or 2 mm tops. But just enough reflective heat on the inside (because of the inside reflective skin) to keep warm in 20+ degree water and a bit of wind. I intend to try it underneath a 2 mm wettie through Autumn as the water gets colder. Comfort ++.
I wear ladies size L and I bought the Mens XXL and it fits perfect. They were out of the ladies size L or XL. So I am happy with the purchase. Can't wait to dive with it now.
