     To extend kayak season into fall and, next year, late spring up here in Michigan, I bought my first wetsuit online, without a try on. The BomberGear sizing is very accurate. I go 5'3" 115 lbs so it was Size Small for me. Women's sizes run XS to XL.

This suit is sleeveless, with a 3mm body core for extra warmth and 2 mm on the limbs for mobility. Knees are reinforced. Mine included a very easy to use hygienic relief zipper. The zipper is by YKK (heavy duty plastic, not metal). Ladies, do not treat a relief zipper as optional - get it, else you will have to practically undress to answer Nature's call.

The first try on took a couple of minutes using the long pull ribbon on the back entry zipper. Now it takes me less than a minute. Very happy w. the fit, it is truly an ergonomic fit for athletic yet womanly physiques.

Now on to paddling. I paddle at a pretty good clip for 4-5 hours each time I go out. This suit flexed nicely under my PFD & was very comfy. Did not feel restricted at all. I even wear it to the put in and, with a towel on my front seat, wear it homeward as well.

Lastly, what is a wetsuit if ya don't get wet? I like to swim and now that the water temp is 61-65 degrees I can. I've worn mine to practice capsizing & paddle float re-entry. Nice & smooth, comfort and confidence. This wetsuit is a great tool for safety and agility while I work to advance my skills.

Absolutely nothing about it on which to make a deduction, so a ten it is.
