Xcel Drylock 5/4/3mm Mens Winter Wetsuit 2011

This suit was £330 new, it is a top of the range winter wetsuit which is renowned for being extremely warm and flexible. Luckily I get free wetsuits through work so I no longer need it! It has done a winter season so is showing signs of being well used!! Firstly it has been patched up on the left leg, this was done professionally by Xcel, it was a big gash caused by a fin hence the big patch, the down side of this is a really small leak in this area which does allow water too trickle in very slowly. Aside from that the suit is still 100% watertight, there are lots of creases in the suit which comes from storage in a wetsuit bag, some baubling around the right cuff and a kink in the right arm again caused by storage. there is also wax on the belly and under the elbows. The taping and stitching is all 100% and the neoprene is still fine. Im trying to be 100% honest about this suit, so im highlighting all the faults, but its still a good suit with plenty of life that will keep you toasty, its 100% superstretch neoprene, bamboo thermal lined, xcel fusion bonded and taped, has waterproof coating and airlock neoprene on the chest and kidney area. It has half moon cuffs, drylock chest entry system, smooth skin collar. Medium Tall will suit - 5 10 - 6ft 2 tall - 32 - 33 waist, 38 - 40 chest Its a good suit that will do someone another year or more, it is heavily creased from storage and has the defects as mentioned above but its a good buy!
