If you tend to underestimate Mother Nature's knack for trickery, then you'd be smart to keep the XCEL Hawaii Men's X-Flex X-Zip 2 3/2mm Wetsuit in the surf wagon at all times. It's thin enough that you won't overheat when a beam or two of sunlight cracks through the clouds yet warm enough to get through those deceivingly cold days.
- X-Zip 2 system features a water-resistant Interlock zipper and drawcord to create a water-tight seal
- Crossover neck entry uses overlapped split panels for easy in and out and reduced stress at the neckline
- UltraStretch SuperLight neoprene offers sufficient insulation with insane stretch
- ThermoBamboo heat-retaining lining on inner chest fuses bamboo charcoal with polyester to enhance core insulation
- SmoothSkin chest offers enhanced wind protection while you sit upright on the board during your search for the perfect wave
- Engineered fit features pre-bent knees and elbows as well as contoured hips for an unrestricted feel
- Double-glued and blind-stitched seams stand up to seabed smacking, and the reinforced stress points ensure the suit lasts for years

What is the key stash storage solution in this suit? Zippered/loop/ what? From another review I read it's on the chest?
Xcel X-Flex 2012 3/2mm Model Size MT
Wetsuit arrived super FAST. Happy with the price I paid - shipping was a little steep...probably could have waited longer and had it sent normal Airmail!
Quality is great. Its perfect for Autumn/Spring, upper neoprene is high quality, knee & below is lesser quality. Fits like a glove - liking the X-Zip 2 entry system - by far the best Chesty 3/2mm I've bought.

What year is this wetsuit (model)? I see the 2013 is a little different to this model. Thanks!
2012 - Seen it for sale out here in AUS too.
Comfy and Warm!
Worn this wetsuit about 30 times in temperatures ranging from 58 to 70 F and it's been great so far. Barely lets any water in even after getting pummeled, easy to put on and take off. Also has a key stash on the chest which I use all the time.
I purchased the "MS" size and it fits perfect. I'm about 5'9" and 145lb.
Only minor complaint would be some very minor fraying on the stitching in a couple places. Still holding up strong though and I don't think its a big concern.
