After one dive and two surface swims I'm disappointed by this investment, quite expensive.
I wish I had time to test it in water and after look for alternatives and return it. The water test for a few hours is a must, all neoprene clothing fit different wet than dry. Sadly the 30 days return period ended before I had time to do all that, and I don't believe I can return it.
The good, it's the cheapest option to learn how a wetsuit feels like. Good price for a new, with warranty product. Effective in 21-26 deg water, great if you just want access to cold water, diving in shallow water once or twice per year or off-season swim/snorkeling. Well done and thick enough for protection against rocks, sticking things, jellyfish and sun.
The bad, it doesn't stretch and it doesn't fit me, there's a lot of free space inside, under my arms, torso, belly, neck and thighs. I'm both tall and slim an L is too short while the XL I own is too large. And so the water moves inside of it and the cold-warm water exchange happens easily. I'm using a shorty under it to limit water flow but still it doesn't feel well. Other wetsuits have various technologies to limit and prevent that like inner rings or material. Lots of air inside stays trapped for a while so that its float-ability varies a lot at surface and during initial submerge.
In my region it costs about 100 euro while in another about 80. A better product from a different manufacturer is about 150 euro. If you're into scuba go for a more expensive one (which stretches well) if this one doesn't fit you. Wish I went for the 150 one.
Cheap if it fits, expensive if it doesn't, dries quicker than my shorty and surfing suit.
