Thin full wetsuits

I've been curious about thin smoothskin full suits for a while, and thinking of getting one for warm weather. I'd be keen to know if anyone has tried them. Are they easier to get on and off than thicker full suits? What's your experience?

Suits like these nice ones. Sadly, some are discontinued.

I've tried the old aquasphere and i don't like it. It's not feel a triathlon wetsuit... :?

What's different about it? Was it tricky to get on and off?

Fit and comfort is a personal thing, as I realised today. A local dive shop had the Beuchat Zento (pic below), so I went to try one out. The thinner 2mm smooth neoprene felt supple and a little easier to put on. Basically it was like a thin triathlon suit without the bulk. Unfortunately it didn't fit me :( . The suit was loose on my upper arms, but too short and pushed on my shoulders. It wasn't comfortable for me, but YMMV.
