99% sure it's legit, very nice customer service rep called me back. They look like decent quality suits and I need one so ordered a hooded 4/3, will report back.

The issue had something to do with Paypal and/or Capital One. Both can be a little overzealous trying to cover their arses.

Thanks for the link!

Spit podcast explained it at the beginning of their show this week. Colby + is 100% legit.

Quick update;
I've now used the Colby 4/3 Hooded - Liquid Sealed - GBS + Thermal Lining maybe 5x winging and absolutely love it. No flushing whatsoever, the large fits me perfectly at 6'3 185#, thought I'd be better off with an LT but they're sold out and it's turned out to be a non-issue.

I was thinking of ordering a spare but Just went ahead and ordered a 3/2 and the 1.5mm long sleeve top for summer.

Thanks for the tip Hdip! Cost me 400 bucks but for three wetsuits it'll be a huge savings in the long run :)

For me the ripcurl no zip flashbomb is the best suit I have ever had.  It might be that I use three in rotation.  Although I do this for the luxury of dry gear on the cold season's early morning sessions, it must help longevity.  they are a 4/3 a 3/2 and a full 2.  The full 2 gets an under layer 1mil shorts and shirt if needed.

So that's it, 3 winters no leaks, all good as new.

Rip Curl dawn patrol back zips for me - I have them in 4/3 and 3/2. Basic but do a great job.
I just sold a billabong 4/3 chest zip that had me doing my best Houdini impression to get out of it post session.
