I've got an NP shorty I've had for years and second that it's warm and comfortable, as is my short arm summer steamer from NP. It's the winter suit I had issues with - good fit and very comfortable, but leaky in the crutch. I think quite a few people had had similar experiences wit them, but admittedly, my winter suit (just replaced with a Spartan) is about 4 years old now so I guess I shouldn't expect it not to deteriorate.Tacking is the new gybing.....

Wully from what I can figure out you have a chest zip dry suit from snugg, is that so? Any chance you could post some pics of it? Is it also partly single lined ?
I have an ok winter suit (o'shea) but I would really like something for more hardcore winter conditions.

I'll be getting my Isurus chest zip wet for the first time tomorrow... it weighs about a 1/3 of my ION winter suit, it doesn't look like it'll be as warm, but I'll wait and see what this Yanamoto neoprene is all about....

the only downside to having the zip in front us when getting the suit off. It's a bit of a struggle to get an elbow out on your own with the 6mm suit.
im away from home for the next week or so but will try to remember to post some photos of both suits when I get back.
edit. I rarely wear a rashy under a wetsuit as it definitely cools you down, as does double lining. The only time I do is if I'm surfing- to prevent chaf.
