What the O’Neill site says about the O’riginal Chest Zip Full Wetsuit:

‘The fully sealed O’Riginal full wetsuit checks all the right boxes. Classic style paired with modern technology and the best fit in the industry.

F.U.Z.E. Front Upper Zip Entry (chest) uses the same technology as our patented Z.E.N. Zip entry with train holes to keep you dry and feeling loose.

Ultralex Neoprene: Ultra Stretch, super soft for superior feel, flexibility, durability and high performance

Smoothskin Carbon Firewall: The interior thermal lining absorbs body heat and retains it. The Smoothskin exterior sheds water and reduces wind chill

UltraFlex (Fully Taped Seams): Soft and durable neoprene seam tape. 0.5mm split-neoprene applied to triple-glued seams to seal out water keeping you dry and loose

F.U.Z.E. 360° Barrier with Drainholes

Strategic Seamless Paddle Zones

Chest/Back Carbon Firewall

Arms/Shoulders/Lower Body: UltraFlex

External Key Pocket with Loop’

What people are saying about it:

“Great fit, surfed it 6 or 7 times now no leaks and Its pretty flexy for a 4/3.” – mike shutt on Amazon

“Quality looked good. At first I could not understand how to put it on. Crazy that you crawl through the small neck opening! I had a very hard time getting both arms in and could not get it off. Had to have my wife help pull my arm out. This was with a dry suit and a dry body…can’t imagine doing that after a dive. I returned it and purchased a back zip instead.” – Theresa Huffman on Amazon

“Fit my tall son perfectly.” – Ed Johnson on Amazon
