  Some have other zipper placements

I have a 3mm suit that uses a diagonal front zipper, plus short zips at the wrists and ankles. All of these make it easier to put on and take off than some other types.

The rear zippers are not too bad if they're long enough, but always make sure that any internal flaps don't get chomped, because you can't see the zipper's progress. And don't get the zipper's pull cord get trapped between the coaming and skirt. I've done this a few times; maybe there's a way to loop the cord and tuck it under the neck tab.
