    I am now looking to replace the trusty Scubapro Everflex 5mm full suit that I lost in Mexico earlier this year. Obviously, I want another 5mm full suit and while the Everflex itself remains a leading choice, I want to look at othet options. As I am a liveaboard only diver for the most part, ease with donning and removing is a major issue in the choice.

    I do not get on with those wetsuits that have a separate cuff at the ankle & wrist with an outer zip. I much prefer the "O-ring" type seal that the Everflex has. Therefore, can I ask for some suggestions or recommendations for the strectiest 5mm full wetsuit? Thanks.

    Personally I don't think you'll get any better than the Everflex... go with what you know :thumbup:

    I bought the Cressi Comfort - very comfortable is easy to wear even in the limited space of the dive shop's back room. It seems a touch heavy for a 5mm suit though (I checked to confirm that it was 5mm) compared with my old Everflex. Have to be clever with my packing in the future.
