this is actually the hardest wetsuit ive ever gotten out of! it was so claustrophobic! so- it has kinda like a V neck that you have to shimmy into (with big hips- that's pretty annoying!) no back zip- you have to fit in through the neck! then there is a back has a flap that goes over your head and zips shut on the chest...that was the super claustrophobic part! i would be very annoyed doing that with wet long hair after surfing- RETURNED!
