  • I've go to buy a suit this year and I was wondering what everyone thought. I may have missed one or two brands.

  • Hey JScott what brand was your suit with the broken zipper?

    Oniell, but I still maintain the suit is one of the lightest most flexible suits I have ever owned, They also fixed it "toot" sweet. Took 19 days total door to door

    My Wife has a Hotlines zipperless, that suit is amazinglly strechty and indestructible glued binded stiched glued again ....

  • I'm with boyee on this one: the xcel infiniti 6/5/4 is nothing short of amazing. For that matter, last year's xcel boots and lobsters were as god to me as any I've ever had.

  • Well thanks for your input. I was leaning towards Ripcurl or Xcell. I found a hook up with the Rip Curl though. If it pans out I'll let you all know.
    Trust in the board.
