As far as Roman Generals go, Scipio was one of the most Ichiban battlefield tacticians ever. Like Scipio's generalship, the Scipio full suit is pound for pound the warmest wetsuit in the water due to its ergonomic fit and its blackZERO technology.
HIDDEN CHAMBER: Geoprene with built-in air chambers: stores radiant heat from the body and improves the suit's ability to slow down heat loss to the outside environment.
HYDRASILK: Silky smooth, hydrophobic ( i.e. rejects H2O ) material that's your windbreaker in the water. Makes you feel all buttery inside.
SATIN SEAL TAPE: A durable yet flexible SCS tape that provides extra seam durability that is soft and comfortable to your skin. Ichiban infused

There are a few suits that fit as well as Matuse Geoprene! As soon as comfortable a little hard to get out and then but once it’s zipped you are good to go, warm beyond belief. In 15 years I have never been disappointed with Matuse!
Hands down the best suit I've ever worn. The whole suit is designed incredibly well, super warm and I never get chafed like I do in wetsuits from other companies.
This thing is AMAZING. Just bought my second Scipio 3mm (on sale - saving for next winter). First one lasted 3+ years with lots of cold north LA/Ventura use. Still wear it. Here’s the thing… you need it to fit right, and Matuse can be a bit tricky. The size chart is not accurate. I’m barely 5’8”, 170 - in good shape. 41” chest (w/ wide shoulders) . 31” waist. Biker thighs. I’ve learned to always buy LARGE in Matuse. Not Large short. Not even XLS in matuse will fit me right (I have XLS Tumo 5/4/3 - too short, legs, body, arms - all of it). I also have a LargeShort spring, also too short - balls smasher. I’ve had 2x Tumo 3/2 - had to send the first medium back in exchange for LARGE. Then bought it again years later. Matuse will be the best suite you’ll own... if it fits right. Once you go Matuse, you’ll probably never go back to anything else.
And Matuse - bring back the HOOD with neck. That was the best stand alone hood.
Truly the greatest suit I've ever owned. Simple genius with the black zero open cell inner, which makes this extra warm but yet light and thin.
