Can get a deal on one of these but skeptical about zipperless after having used chest zip for years with no problems.

Wondering if anyone has experience with this suit.

No but I just picked up some Furnace booties and they prevent pretty much no water from seeping in. First steps in the water coming in from everywhere! Very disappointed in Billabong right now

I had a Bong furnace carbon zipperless a few years ago. It was my first zipperless suit.

i had no issues with it. Great suit, flexible and warm, minimal flushing.

Isnt that how wetsuits work? Let water in, then your body warms it?

I think it is supposed to keep water out, I have never had booties that let water in that I can remember besides a leak. Water eventually gets in eventually either way tho.

Based on the graphite I just bought I would say it sucks. The graphene material is sweet though.
