Zipper types

With different types of ways of getting in and out of various wetsuits, does anyone have preferences?

I like back zips for a clean looking front and ease of entry/exit, but can't beat chest zips or zipperless suits for flexibility and fewer leaks! Sometimes it's worth looking like a contortionist to get suited up.

And who dreams of a suit that doesn't have a way of getting in and out, except maybe stretching out the neck hole and climbing in. Imagine a machine that stretches out the suit for you to step in!

I’ve still got one of the old style semi dry suits with a cross shoulder dry zip. It feels pretty horny to wear, once it’s zipped up I can’t get out on my own! :D

Haha, interesting! A drysuit zip! But you'd have a dive buddy by your side, right? :D

Yeah sort of! It’s actually a wetsuit but with a dry zip, I don’t need to wear anything underneath.
I use it for windsurfing and jetskiing, but my mates seem to like to tease and not let me out at the
end of the day :D :D .

Sounds like a pretty cool wetsuit to have. They must like seeing it if they want you suited up after the session. LOL :D
