Description

The Colby + Yamamoto 3/2mm  Chest Zip Fullsuit is designed for cool to mildly warm conditions, typically used in water temps in the high 50s to mid 60s.  

Like all Colby + wetsuits, it features Yamamoto #39 in the torso for durability, shape retention and warmth, and Yamamoto #40 in the shoulders and arms for added flexibility and freedom to reduce paddling fatigue.  We use a custom-made jersey from the world's premiere jersey provider which has a silky hand feel with amazing stretch and resilience.

The Colby + Yamamoto 3/2mm Chest Zip Fullsuit features triple-glued and blindstitched (GBS) seams with internal taping in critical areas (those that take the most abuse).  GBS stitching combined with internal tape will improve the longevity of the suit and also helps reduce leakage from sew-through.  It doesn't completely alleviate it, but certainly helps. 

To help alleviate leakage, and importantly, we've applied a rubberized liquid seal treatment to the exterior seams, which ends just below the armpits.  This will dramatically reduce leakage in the lower body, crotch and torso.  And because we've left it off of the arms and shoulders, you'll have unmatched freedom and flexibility in the upper body.  

The chest zip design is a tried-and-true standard and features an all-metal YKK zipper pull which will outlast the life of the neoprene.  It's tough as nails, but not too bulky or heavy.  

The dark grey upper body jersey turns nearly black when wet and also indicates where the Yamamoto #40 is used.

Features

FEATURES PROS / BENEFITS CONS / TRADE-OFFS
Yamamoto Neoprene Soft and flexible feel. Fantastic warmth and lightweight as well. More expensive per yard and if not taken care of, will degrade like other neoprene (no faster, but not impervious to mishandling)
Jersey Our proprietary jersey lining is the most comfortable and flexible we've ever felt (and surfed in) Not as bullet proof as cheaper jerseys
Liquid sealed seams Reduces the inflow of water through seams and pinholes from sewing needles Reduces flexibility and can delaminate if left in the sun to bake
Extra durable knee pads Won’t delaminate or fail as easily for guys that drag a knee when popping up or push under waves using their knee on the tail Slightly less flexible
Watertight zip Reduces leakage through zipper teeth Water will still get in the wetsuit (slowly), but this is how it’s meant to work. The other tradeoff is it’s a bit more expensive than the non-water-tight zips
Triple glued + blindstitched construction No buildup around seams to give you a rash. More mobility in your upper body More expensive and hand-constructed, so if there’s human error (missing a spot of glue for example), it can sometimes be felt in the form of water seepage/leaking or even failed seams (warranty will cover for 1 year)
Internal neoprene taped seams Adds strength to the seams and helps prevent additional water seepage/leaking More expensive to produce. Can limit flexibility (though not as much as liquid seal treatment), and sometimes will delaminate if not taken care of (left in the sun) or wasn’t properly glued at the factory (warranty will cover)

Ok, less than expected.

I just went for my first surf yesterday since buying the suit. Getting over an injury. The wetsuit was unecesarily difficult to get into and out of in comparison to my Rip Curl wettie. The rubber was slightly lighter and wicked water off which made the wetsuit lighter when wet. Perfectly warm. The fit was too tight in the chest (I lift weights) but fit in other places. Love the brand and I hope this feedback helps with development. Thanks Colby team. Shaka!

Bummed I had to send back the Colby + Yamamoto

I was severely disappointed to have to return the suit, but there was no room for my junk. I don't think the suit would have loosened up enough to take the chance. Waiting patiently for a refresh to the dimensions, which will include more room in the crotch. Colby+ is a class act. The suit arrived the day after I ordered, the price point is generous for the build quality and amazing feeling neoprene, and the return process was easy, which included paid postage. Highly recommend giving Colby+ a shot.

Great Quality Suit MT Fit Too Tight

I am 6 ft 160 lb and usually with most brands, I wear an MT-size suit. After checking the size chart I assumed this suit wouldn't be any different and it's recommended for someone of my height and weight. Once arrived I tried it on and it felt about right nothing crazy maybe a little snug but that's pretty normal for a new suit. Also a little short in the arms, legs, and torso but I knew it would be since they mentioned this for the Yamamoto suits. Great feel and quality work on the seams. However, It wasn't until I surfed in it that I couldn't bear the tightness I felt in the chest, shoulders, and especially the neck. It made paddling very hard and the neck made it very hard to keep my head up without feeling strained. I've still given it a few surfs hoping it just needed to break in but alas the problem persists. Which is a shame since it is a very nice suit. Warmer too than a regular neoprene suit which is wonderful. I would still say for the price and quality go for it can't beat it but be aware of the sizing.

Great Suit but...

Size chart is good, I'm 6-1 and I chose the Large vs LT and now I rock a moose knuckle. I gotta set up to an LT to write a full review.
