Need Help Buying Wetsuit

I am looking for a nice wetsuit to buy for next year. There is a 'Ironman Wetsuits Stealth Full' on sale (all3sports.com) for $307. I also like the Orca brand. I am looking to spend ~300 bucks and would prefer to wait for 2005 clearances to get a good '05 suit on sale. I am looking for recommendations. Thanks!

Check out wetsuit.com. Someone in this forum recommended them to me, and they are the best looking suits I've seen, and I'm just as impressed with the features of the suit now that I've had one shipped to me. They sized me perfectly, and I ordered it from Oregon (I live in SC). Their prices are definitely right (their most expensive, Cadillac version is $289). I got the $169, sleeveless version, and I'm really pleased with it. I tried on a few Quintana Roo wetsuits here locally, and I like this one a lot better. It might not be for you, but, like I said, it was an out-of-the-blue recommendation from Tribob from this forum, and it turned out to be worth checking into. Good luck.

If you can get to a shop to try them on, do it! Wetsuits fit differently. I could not fit in an Orca. They seemed to be for people with slimmer frames. I have broader shoulders and went with the IM Stealth suit. It fit me very well. The back panel helps release some of the heat that builds up.
