I saw Matuse suits tend a little small so I got a full size up. I am 5,10" and 165lb, and the Large fits perfectly. Range of motion is great and feels like a good 4/3, and I'm a bunch of sessions in and absolutely no leaks. I am impressed how well designed the suit is, everything fits right and works. I am over buying wetsuits from private equity firms and acting like a 5/4 is overkill in Ventura. Comfort goes a long way. I love the suit. Also, I got the booties and they're sick too.
The team love the suits. Thank you for your generous support.
Stays super dry, light , warm, flexible feels durable will buy again
I've been surfing for 55 years and never have I absolutely loved a suit like I do this one. Well, maybe the 5/4/3 Hoplite. IThe Hoplite never got soft and let in water like other suits when they age. They feel like butter when you slide into them, such a sweet feeling I have to remind myself it's a wetsuit I'm sliding over my, uh....to keep from creating an embarrassing protrusion. Mine fit so well that even after gong over the falls and duck diving in heavy surf parts are dry inside. With the hood and this amazing rubber I have never been flushed. Downside is if you pee in them it doesn't rinse itself out during my session. I've raved about them so much that other friends up here on the Central California Coast have started buying them and say they'll never go back to their old O'Neills or Rip Curls. I could go on and on, but dinner's getting cold! Happy surfing!!
