Warmer and dries faster.
I ordered a Tumo 4/3 chest zip online but it fit too tight. I wasn’t sure how much it would loosen up so I called the warehouse and asked to speak with someone who could advise on this. I spoke with Alex who took the time to give me his thoughts and recommendations on sizing. He told me to come in and I could try on another size. I found a better fit and was able to exchange my original order without any hassle. I even used this opportunity to bring in an older Scipio for repair. I have been wearing Matuse wetsuits exclusively for many years and they are by far the best quality suits out there. Your customer care I just experienced is another reason I will remain a loyal customer! Oh, and I've worn my new Tumo several times and I love it!
superb customer service with an incredible product. Looking forward to getting waves in the suit this winter.
Movement is great. Had a Dante before and defiantly think the tumo was worth the extra bucks. Warmer and dries faster.
This suit is worth every penny. I've had this suit for 6 years and I still wear it in the dead of winter (So-cal Winter). It's still watertight and the seams are ALL still smooth. Sometimes, the tape used on seams starts to crack around year 3 or 4 but every one of these seams is totally intact. If you do the math, sure, you could buy a budget suit every other year(at best, they might last that long) for $175 and spend $550 over 6 years OR, you could just spend a little money now, have an incredibly comfortable suit for 6 or more years and not have to fuss with breaking in a new suit all the time. Take care of this suit. I rinse mine thoroughly every time I use it. Most times I shower with it on and really make sure there is not a drop of salt water left in it. It doesn't make sense to spend this amount of money on an incredible product and not take care of it. It'll last a long time if you just take care of it. After 6 years there is a little fraying on the sleeves and ankles. I'm pretty sure it's got at least another couple of seasons in it. Lastly, this suit dries SO FAST. I don't know what the hell is going on with it but the next morning, I can grab it out of the shower and it's ready to go. I HATE wet wetsuits, hence the reason I have 2 Tumo's, A scipio and 5 Dante's but I could wear this suit every day it dries so fast.
