Brands:Brand: O'Neill Wetsuits
Recent surf session for me had me in a 3:2 wetsuit, which was working great on mild sprng days with the sun shining. Unfortunately, when the sun goes away and the winds pick up a bit, I found my 3:2 wetsuit lacking, and I'd sometimes get cold. I wanted a vest like this anyways for surfing in moderately warmer claimtes, as I find rash guards barely do the trick for myself in regards to rash protection. So I picked it up for myself.
I returned this vest because it was too small. I am 5' 6" and 131 pounds, well within the "Small" category on the size chart. I had planned on getting a medium, the same size as the vest that I am replacing this one with, but I balked and went by the chart. Even the medium is pretty tight, but you do not want it loose as that defeats the ability of the vest to keep you warm. I bought this for the fall surf so I have not used it yet but I've had many O'Neill's in the past and I trust this one will be of good quality. The material is very supple and flexible so it should be easy to move in and comfortable. I will come back and update if I find it to be otherwise.
This bvst is amazing! I'm a big guy and have tried on everything(i mean everything) but this is easy on easy off. Protects you from the sun, and it keeps you warm when you're cold. My best bought vest ever
My size L. I've bought XL because of other buyers reviews. They experienced problems with size. It appeared XL small for me. But the major issue - they don't really have free returns. Free returns available only in Amazon drop off. Any other options are with regular UPS rates. I don't recommend it.
I ordered the usual XL.Very hard to put on.It bunches over the shoulder blades and almost impossible to reach to pull down.
Fits good under my 7mm wetsuit for extra cold days. I’m 6’4” and runs slightly short.
Was great. Bit tight. Recommend going one size up from the chart. Had a hard time removing it after I got out of the water.
I got this as a gift for my boyfriend and he fell in love me all over again.
