Hey guys,

Been a bit unlucky getting my hands on a Patagonia suit this winter.
Had look at the Needs essentials site but they are out of stock until the 17th Oct.

Looking at getting a $250 suit to get me through the winter.
Winter's over. :-o
Winter may be but the water temp wont rise for a while. You're right though, I'm better of sucking it up and waiting til next year. Won't be any cheaper though, I never find mediums in the bargain rack.

Hmm?
Never any L or XL in the bargain rack when I look.
Well, apart from the CSkins I got a couple of years back. 3-)

I've got one of the 2/2 short sleeve steamer synchros. Back zip. Keeps the sun off in summer. Not geared for warmth, however I reckon the long sleeve 3/2 would be a better buy, especially the chest zip.

Might give it a crack and see.

Actually tried on a bong suit today. Nice and stretchy......but it was back zip with a flap like my old Quikkie.
