This is my second wetsuit from Boardriders and yet again its been pleasure to deal with these guys. For those of you who get your suits at the end of a season for next year then this is the suit for you. The Psycho RG8 is a fantastic suit and at the sale price of £134.99 it's an amazing deal. Its warmer than my Ripcurl e-bomb and just as flexible, which suprised me as the e-bombs are very much up there in flexability. I've got a Psycho 2 07 model and with the dual liquid seam, this suit is single seemed but on the plus side single seems make for a more flexible suit and with a chest zip it really does loosen up the shoulder area for paddling which back zips normaly restrict.
Once ordred i recieved it the next day and was out in the water straight away, with winter knocking on the door i thought it would be a good test to see how it held up with temperature. No problem at all and it should see me through to the end of October before i start using the winter suits.
Of all the branded suits i've had Oniell last the longest with any zip or seem failures. I do use Xcel suits and rate the RG8 on a par with them.
IMHO i've had issues with every Quiksilver suit i've owned (4 zips failing on seperate suits)and billabong dont last much more than one season without an epic fail.
