very impressed with quality and excellent pricing. I am 5'8" and weigh 150 lbs, wear a size 8 with longer torso so ordered the Large. Good fit, long enough in the legs,arms and crotch. A little difficult to get the zipper all the way up on my own but it can be done. Rolls on and off easily. Heavy we...

The quality of Camaro wetsuits are very good in general, moderately stretchy, has zips for arms and legs which is convenient for a 5mm wetsuit. However, I found Camaro to be typically slightly short on torso and legs and bigger on chest. For 5'3 100lb, size XS, I have quite some residual space under arm pit and around chest, while I would wish the torso to be 1/2mm longer and the legs to be 1/2mm wider to minimize the space around crotch. Size S is right at legs and much longer in torso, and too wide on chest of course.

Got this for the wife because she usually wear 3mm wetsuit on top of a 3mm insta ddry shorty. But she had been complaining on some of the cooler dives (mid to low 70's F) that she was getting the chills, so thought she needs a 5mm with less water seepage. This suit seems heavy duty and a bit stiff. Now I realize 4 way stretch does not mean extended stretch, it just means it does what every other piece of neoprene I ever encountered does, which is stretch in all 4 directions.
Putting it on requires 2 people since it is critical to have the bare neoprene overlap each other, but for scuba diving, you always have your buddy there. Fit wise, the size L seem to fit decently well, there is some airspace under the armpit. She said it is much more constricting than her dual wetsuit, but this is usually expected from thicker wetsuit, especially if it does not have extra stretchy panels. Plus, the neck seal runs real high and tight, which looks like it is for the purpose of having a watertight seal. We will have to see how they are once underwater when the suits is compressed by the water pressure, and whether all the extra effort of putting it on makes her warmer and dryer.
One thing that doesn't fit at all are the wrist seals (didn't check the ankle seal). It seem to be made for a larger wrist. Even when folding it back inward (to create a waterproof seal), it is still way too large, probably allowing gobs of water in. Will have to see if bungee cord, rubber band or aquaseal/contact cement can make the wrist smaller.

I loved this suit when I got it- none of the traditional problems I've seen with BodyGlove wetsuits- ie the arms are too spacious and allow water in, the legs are too short and body too long, the back of the shoulders are too big. Four way stretch was easy to get on and off and the wetsuit was easy to move in plus kept me warm in cold water. HOWEVER, I went to put it on a bit ago and the crotch seams split about 12 inches. I've not gained weight or girth and I took care to put it on. Really a disappointment for the price- was expecting to use this suit for years. Hoping Camaro will repair it under the 3-year guarantee!

This was much heavier than I expected and being 5'8" it ran too short in length in both the arms and legs and the torso ran long. I ordered a size 12 and usually wear a 10/12 size. Otherwise it seems really well constructed.
