Yeah, I thought there was an inexorable path of improvement in materials and "features" which migrated down the chain from high end to low end suits.

So, as long as I picked the middle road I would be apples.

No idea how Shearer can keep championing Need wetsuits, they fall apart so quickly. He must be getting kickbacks

I’ve learned my lesson with all these online brands. If I can’t try a wetty on in a shop, I’m not buying it, and happy to pay bricks and mortar shop price.
I was impressed though with Independant SurfCo policy to refund if not satisfied, they were true to their word. The suit I bought was as stiff as a honeymooner’s cock.

NC got into me for calling them cnuts. Born at Bells not too far from where I lived, but expected to pay primo compared with OS buyers. Had wholesale contacts for a few years which was great and also got many good deals from smallish people in the industry who were looked after by RC. No longer an option

How do you get 'em from OS Leej? I thought they stamped it out

Overkill for Sydney but anywhere that gets cold it would go alright. If it was a chest zip, it would be even better.
