    Awesome! Warm, thin, flexible, and way more durable than a Camaro

    👍👍 very comfortable. Full suit user here in the PACNW, for reference. Will use it into October as water drops into lower 60’s.

    I have one and it’s great, I have the long sleeve shorty. One tip if you’re buying is buy a size larger than normal as it’s very very tight.

    Keeps the cold off, just have used in the spring, water would have been high 50s low 60s

    Assuming a good fit, how dry are these suits?

    Warm flexible they do run a little small

    I have a full length suit and love it. Can ski into 55-60 deg water and my body is comfortable. The only spot where I get water in is at the zipper if I don't fold it over properly. Very little water if that though. They also have a coating which keeps wind from coming in.

    Best wetsuit I have ever used. Warm, light, and comfortable. I have both the shirt and the full-body. I skipped the shorty. If its cold enough for a shorty, I just use the full-body. Like was mentioned, they do run small.

    Anyone here that has used both Black Tech and the Syndicate Dry Flex that can describe the differences?
    I use the Black Tech with water as low as 42 and air in the 40s and it works. My impression is it may be warmer than the Dry Flex.

    I've been looking on line at these suits. I have a Blacktec that I like quite a bit. But I'm always interested in other suits as well. In all the photos of the Syndicate Dry Flex, the bottom of the right sleeve is blue, and the left bottom sleeve is black. Is this anything other than style? I'm beyond needing color coding to tell my right from my left. ;-)

    Very interresting. 80$ less then a Camaro shorty,(279 vs 199) and 45$ less then a Stokes shorty.
    My ski finish in 16.95 ...but my ass is out of tolerance!

    No tall sizes means it probably won’t be an option for me
  • GarnGarn Posts: 585 Crazy Baller
    @Cnewbert Just style!
  • jayskijayski Posts: 1,082 Mega Baller
    @vtmecheng how tall are you? My oldest is 6'3 and he has no issues with shortness in the suit anywhere
  • gcam4gcam4 Posts: 104 Baller
    @vtmecheng I'm 6'4" 175lbs and have no issues. I ordered a large and while tight, it is not restrictive at all.

    I have the HO long sleeve shorty the best wetsuit I’ve ever owned or worn. Use it from May 1 in Ontario to late October. It’s snug but I think that’s the point I’m 184cmx75kilos in a large
  • vtmechengvtmecheng Posts: 903 Crazy Baller
    @gcam4 I’m 6’4” and 180 lbs, basically the same as you. I really like my O’Neill Hyperfreak shirt so will probably stick with that. My full wetsuit is just ok so I may try for a replacement this spring.

    Does it have waterstop flap under zip like Hyperfreak?
