I ended up requesting to exchange for the SAR suit which better fit my needs (chest vs back zip).
Customer service was excellent. Very enjoyable experience.
I’ve owned matuse suits for years. Fantastic quality, refuse to own a different suit.
I have not yet had the opportunity to try my newest wetsuit due to multiple injuries that I am try to recover from. My expectations are that the wetsuit wil be both functional and serve the purpose for which I purchased it. Mahalo!
