New wetsuit

New wetsuit
Got a new wetsuit care of of XCEL hookup.

4/3 Infiniti Interlock. It’s replacing my 2 year old summer 4/3 which is still useable but getting crusty. The best part if I forgot to put in a colour preference when choosing so I get to be the “red baron” all summer. Hah.

I can’t recommend these suits enough – excellent products.

    dude. we’re on the same psychic frequency. i picked up the infinity 2mm full suit on our last trip to LA. ‘cept mine’s all black. I ended up picking that one out, cuz there’s no zipper at the base of my skull. i hate back zippers. my spring suit gives me headaches sometimes. can’t wait to try the xcel out next january. trying it on in 85º LA heat was a lesson in futility. i broke a sweat just looking at it. by the time i was done, I and it needed a wash down. the guy was probably pretty happy he got the sizing right on the first try.

    i paid full retail [insert frowning face here]

    Hah… ah yes.. the “try on” in the hot store.
    I remember trying on my 5/4/3 in the store last fall — wow – I have never heated up that fast in my life. (paid full retail for that one!)

    The over the neck zip is great — i’ve only had had one back zip suit – that was a cheap billabong 3/2 so it’s hard for me to judge — but I’m sure this system keeps your suit from “flushing” more often that a back zip.

    I’m still shocked about the need for a suit in MX though .. maybe we should come down and test out the water temps. heh

    Stevey,
    I have a Pyscho II 4/3 size Medium from last year I’m trying to sell for $175.
    Know anyone who needs one? I only wore it 4 times so it’s perfecto.

    Shoot me an email and I can explain more.
