this wetsuit is fairly tight, but wetsuits are supposed to be tight and work best when snug. I ordered two sizes, and am sticking with the true to size one. it's high quality, 4mm is nice thickness, and better than standard thinner suit. agree that it's impossible to remove solo, but comes off easily if someone is there to pull off shoulders.

This is a good quality wetsuit. It stretchs very well. A large was the right size for my 5'11 170 lbs frame. However it is very difficult (almost impossible) to remove. Because the front zipper design only goes down to your waste the suit will not open up enough to get it over your shoulders. Without the help of another person I could not remove it.

I'm 5'7", 150 pounds, with a medium-to-muscular build. I ordered a medium size, and it fit like a glove...but I found it impossible to get out of this front-zip wetsuit without assistance. Getting it over my shoulders by myself was not simply difficult, but impossible, and I can't imagine how anyone does it unless they are double-jointed at the elbow and their arms bend backward. Pull-straps on the shoulders might help, but of course that would defeat the whole idea of the streamlined design. The suit itself is nicely styled and appears to be high-quality, and 4mm shorties are not all that easy to find, but for my needs this suit was just not practical, so with regrets I returned it.
