Can we do another wetsuit roundup?
I've been using Xcels for years. They fit me, seem pretty stretchy, are warm enough. I like them a lot a first, but they never seem to last more than one year. Some of the seams degrade and I get leaks, which when the water is 40 degrees, kinda sucks.
I bought a 5.5 ebomb, and it turns out it is just not a fit for me, so that one goes back.
I like the idea of a patagonia if it lasts at least two years, but i've heard they're not as stretchy, and that's probably the most important thing to me. I'd rather buy a stretchy suit every year than a more restrictive one, even if it lasts for 5 years.
