Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The material in this wetsuit feels and measures the same thickness as the nominal 2mm O'Neill "superlight", and equivalent suits (medium, "farmer john") weigh the same overall. The front and ankle zippers make the O'Neill easier to get in and out of (the NeoSport has a single Velcro shoulder closure), and overall the O'Neill seems better built. Sizing is similar (if one fits so will the other, at least for the "medium"), which is more comfortable will depend on where you carry your weight. For myself I haven't yet decided which will be "wear" and which will be "spare", but first impression is favoring the O'Neill for "wear". These comments apply to 2013 models . . . who knows what the New Year will bring . . .
I haven't put it in the water yet, but it definitely feels comfortable. I really like the shoulder Velcro closure, it means there is no zipper to bunch up sitting in my kayak.
I would say it runs a size small. I am 6'1", 215lbs with a 37" waist and the XXL fits like a glove. I can't imagine someone a little bigger than me fitting in the XXL. The length is almost to my ankles.
The price is right, there are no zippers to get in the way of my kayak spray skirt. Definitely would recommend to anyone that needs an affordable kayak wetsuit for bailing in 50 degree water.
Terrific fit, high-quality construction. Easy to don, and the Velcro entry is convenient and secure (locks on two sides instead of just one which is what I was expecting). Low price for what you get. This is designed to be worn with an additional piece (a jacket), but for purposes where the water isn't especially cold you might feel comfortable with this alone or with a rash guard top. Grippy knee-pads are a plus; haven't used it enough to say how durable they are but they seem very reliable and well-attached.Have recommended to a friend.
