O'Neill O'Riginal Chest Zip 3/2mm wetsuit 2018 - Slate/Reef
The O'Riginal family has rapidly become a best-seller, with classic uncomplicated looks and plenty of modern technology along with the best fit in the wetsuit industry. This front entry mens summer wetsuit is constructed from O'Neill's UltraFlex neoprene with the amazing Carbon Firewall thermal lining backing the SmoothSkin chest and back panels. All seams are Glued and BlindStitched and fully taped creating a watertight and durable wetsuit perfect for a full Spring/Summer season from May right through to October. The O'Riginal 3/2mm fullsuit would be ideal for a winter trip to Portugal, Spain, Southern France and the Canaries.
Key features include; O'Neill's F.U.Z.E Front Upper Zip Entry with drain holes to keep you flush-free and with a full range of movement. UltraFlex all-way stretch neoprene is super-soft, durable and seriously high-performance. SmoothSkin Carbon-Firewall in the chest and back; the interior thermal lining absorbs body heat in core areas and holds on to it while the exterior sheds water and reduces wind chill. The Triple-Glued and BlindStitched Seams are fully taped internally with O'Neill's 0.5mm UltraFlex Split Neoprene tape so fully watertight and incredibly flexible.

Overall Customer Rating
Owen (reviewed 03/01/2019)
The fit and finish of the suit really seems quite good, all the seams are carefully taped with neoprene on the inside, and I can't see any weak points like I have in my current wetsuit (Quiksilver Syncro), which has developed holes in a number of poorly designed joins. The O'Neill suit isn't nearly as stretchy as the Quiksilver, but I can't say that I actually notice the difference in the water, I suspect that the importance of how flexible a neoprene is is over-rated in a 3/2, at my level of surfing anyway.
The suit's very comfortable. I really like the design of the overlapping flaps underneath the chest/head opening on the suit, they form a kind of close-fitting secondary collar that prevents any water from flushing into your suit. The zipper is also a standout for me: it's placed a touch higher up than on other suits I've worn, closer to your neck, which keeps it nicely out of the way, instead of running right across your chest. The actual zipping mechanism itself is also a good deal smaller, lighter, and less chunky than on any other wetsuit I've worn, making it less noticeable when paddling.
In terms of fit, if I were to order another, I think I'd go with an MS instead of an M. I've lost a few pounds recently and there's a bit of extra material in the biceps and armpit region, it's very subtle and not noticeable in the water, but still. In case it helps, I'm 5ft9/175cm 158.5 pounds/71.9kilos, 35 athletic build with fairly broad shoulders and back.
For the money, the suit's very good value.
