Okay so this is my second riffe 3.5mm wetsuit and still the most comfortable suit I’ve ever had. In between this one and the last one I owned (it was the blue colored digitec) I’ve tried a few other popular name wetsuits (in the same price categories or even more expensive) and they all just feel more constricted even though they were also 3.5mm thickness- and I don’t feel any of them lasted as long as my first riffe suit. I would have given it 5 stars, but I have 3 things I feel could be done different:
1). Add a pocket or two- not sure why any spearo wetsuit now a days doesn’t have at least one pocket on the leg- so many useful things you can use it for and there’s no harm in having it if you don’t use it
2). I’m not a fan of the knee reinforcements. I’ve use other wetsuits that have something more similar to what’s on the elbow but a little rougher or aggressive and it seems to hold up longer than the almost painted on rubber coating, or even ones that have a whole different layer of material over those areas. I do live in Hawaii and 85% of my diving is reef where we drop to the bottom and lay on rough reef and rock a lot of the time.
3). And last is the lack of inner coating that makes it easier to put on. I’m not talking about lined wetsuits, but so many of the higher end suits now have some kind of like gold or silver paint on the inside that makes it so much nicer putting on. The riffe suits is down right a pain in the butt to get into without sufficient lube. Now…
