Yep - my cyber is 4 years old and while the knees have gone, the japanese neoprene still feels like butter. I have no idea how anyone could get a rash from these suits. Brilliant suit - pity the Aussie dollar is so rubbish these days or would have kept buying these.

Totally agree they need a new website.

These prices vary a bit depending if you want smooth skin, an inner liner, a custom fit, ect....

$400 for a 2mm ss full
$420 for a 2/2 full
$500 for a 3/2
$600 for a 4/3


3/2 with smoothie front and back is all you need for SD.

I do not get a liner in my 3/2 but if you want they can put it - would make it even warmer.

And note the 4/3 is absurdly warm. I'm talking sweating uncomfortable hot if the water is too warm, which would be on the higher end of the 50s. I was cozy in mine on the Central Coast when the water was 50-52.


I'm fine dawn patrolling in a 3/2 cyber with smooth skin and a liner in SD all winter. Rarely wear booties too. Most other wetsuits, I would prefer a 4/3.

My 4/3 cyber is my Central Coast suit.

Also, if you end up getting a cyber, I recommend going chest zip vs the standard Japanese velcro entry. I have the velcro entry on one of my suits and I don't like it.

I also recommend getting the neck gasket.

Not sure how much you surf but a decent OTR 3/2 from the big brands will last me season.

A Cyber lasts me two seasons not to mention is warmer, more flexible, and custom made...so works out being cheaper.

Wore my 2.2 Isurus shield suit that past week. I was actually a little hot in it. The water is North County has been a little on the warm side (i guess). Its like 64ish. The suit is really stretch and very cozy. The zipperless is super nice. Although I get flushing on the neck every time i've paddled out with it? I dont know whats going on with that, but it felt kinda good since I was warm in the suit. Getting my head in and out of the zipperless entry is a little tough. My hair is a bit long right now, so it pulls on my hair when im getting in and out of it.

Other than that, I've super happy with it! The seams are taped nicely and it has a 1 year warranty. The isurus guys included a little changing mat that made out of neoprene so you're not stepping on your suit on the ground (which i thought was super cool). It looks like a huge mouse pad! hahah.

Cyber sounds really good too.

shaka yewww!!!

A wetsuit shouldn't flush like that. I'd either return it or sell it.

yeah, I'm not sure how you could be "super happy" with a wetsuit that flushes through the neck every time you go under a wave... Unless you got it for free, that's a dealbreaker in a wetsuit. Return the suit to Isurus, keep the giant mouse pad.

People will put up with a lot. I remember the patagucci and buell reviews: Amazing suit, just let's in water or gives me a rash... other than that, great suit!

Lol, that's a horrible suit!

A suit might rash on one person and not rash on another.

Same with flushing

That's not necessarily a sign of a bad suit.

Wetsuit sizing is flawed and body types are varied.

My personal favorite the old Xcel X zip entry , everyone complained about leakage but fit me perfect

When it lasts you 3 years, it's only $133/year.

I don't understand why people don't get this confused2

Like I said before, what if it develops a leak in a bad area like the crotch at let's say year one. then you're either stuck with it or you have to get a new one. I just don't trust suits enough to spend that much money.
