I just bought my second top this season because it performs so well for my needs.

strengths:
-snug fit - helps prevent drag when getting pounded by waves
-outer shell is heavy fabric and prevents wind from penetrating
-neck and wrist gaskets fit snug and prevent most water from entering while completely submerged, neck is a little tight but loosens after use
-comfortable collar
-fits well over waders
-has pull strings to keep snug -and are easy to use

negatives
the sizing is incredibly small - i am a fit #145 male and could not even squeeze into a medium, the large fits fine. I wear a 38 short blazer. This is no joke, get the next size up or plan on spending cash on a return.
