I picked up a 2 mil Colby short sleeve full earlier this year, and it seems sized similar to my old Xcels. The neck was a bit tough at first and hard to remove over the shoulders, but now that I've broken it in, it's great, esp for the price. Hopefully I'll get 2-3 seasons out of it. So far I'm impressed.

All of the current and past Colby stuff is whats left of Needs Essentials USA. Colby used to be the North American distributer and there was a falling out and a lawsuit...Colby has been selling off their existing stock for a while now. Colby does have new suits on the way...but nothing new yet...

The new stuff is the Yamamoto rubber suits right?

How do you like the Crooked?

I just got my 3.2 Crooked wetsuit and am STOKED!!! I ordered a MT and it fits amazing, sizing is on point! The wetsuit is really well made and is really easy to move around in. This is my first boutique Yamamoto wetsuit and their defiantly nicer than the standard high end Quick, Xcel, and Hurley wetsuits I've previously owned.

I just took a new Quik Everyday Session 4/3 Saturday.
It worked. It certainly didn't feel as warm as my old Rip Curl F Bomb.
It's more comfy (the lining) than my scratchy Buell RB2.

Water is cooling down in SLO, 2mm zipless hyperfreak is still the best. Plenty warm, super comfortable.
