CSkin's Angel 3x2 Steamer
The past 2 weeks has seen the east coast of Australia battered by 15 to 20 foot swell and like many I took to higher ground to watch the magnificent show. The awesome power of the ocean smashing into the open beaches...great for foam but not so good for doing wetsuit reviews!
So I suited up and spent some quality time floundering around in 'CSkin's Angel 3x2 Steamer' and this is what I came up with:
The suit fitted well, the length in the body was good (no camel toe) and was true to size (my standard size fitted well straight off the rack). The legs and arms felt super snug, almost a little tight, but as I have worn this suit it has kinda molded to my shape and is not restricting in any way. No water leaking through the seams, everything sealed, Velcro sticky, toasty warm!
My favorite features...The spot for your key is in the inside of your left calf which is a fantastic spot (there is nothing worse than having a key digging into you). But hands down I love the fluffy orange lining that seems southerly proof! I think CSkins call it "fire core".
The suit is competitively priced $424.95 and has a long list of feature on the swing tag. Comes in sizes 6 to 18 and the whole suit is made out of Ultra Stretch 'C-flex' neoprene.
Finally the swell backed off and I got to surf in CSkin's Angel 3x2 Steamer. I headed out and completely forgot about the 'review' and enjoyed the session! Which surely must be good, I didn't have to worry about getting cold or malfunctioning gear, just about how much fun I was having!
