I wear the 4/3/2 all winter here. It's so easy to get into and (more importantly) out of and far more comfortable, that I can't bring myself to wear my 5/4 that feels like a straightjacket when trying to take it off. Add a 5/3 hooded vest and the Supreme is good for most anything New England winters can dish out.....I do now draw the line at 15F especially if windy...getting wimpy in my old age..... ;)

Easy you say?  I don't think they are easy to get into or out of, in fact, I have a hard time getting into my new suit this morning.  I think it's because it's so extremely stretchy.  Probably will get easier with practice.

I watched Dan Gavere shed his SUPreme wetsuit after our "Hellfire" run a few years ago. He took his off like he was peeling out of coveralls, while I flopped around like a gaffed mackerel trying to get off my 3/4 Oneill full suit. I needed help, he didn't.

Mine suit arrived today. 4 days since ordered it... not bad. Total price was 45 bucks.

I was a little apprehensive as I never owned a chest zip wetsuit before. This is after a sweaty claustrophobic nightmare trying one on when they first came out. That's why they coined the phrase, "Team O'Neill", because you needed at least two people to get in and out of it.

This one, I put on and took it off with ease. As easy, or easier, than my O'neill back zip Heat. It's lightweight and super stretchy. Seems like I could've gone one size smaller, but this one will be fine. I got the 3-2-1mm, so I'll see how warm it is as the water temp in Santa Cruz has fallen to somewhere around 54 degrees.

I clicked on it again and this time I got the 20 dollar coupon. Although not as good as Mr. Zoo's score, it's still such a deal.
 
I bought this one for a Christmas present.

I know what you mean about the stretchiness making it different taking them off but getting it off your shoulders is effortless and that's always been my biggest problem...after that you just peel it off.
