This was my first experience using DoG and I admittedly was skeptical about a wetsuit costing almost half of what the local surf shops were asking. I'm a So. Cal surfer who has refused to go above a 3/2 but as I'm getting older the body is getting colder and this winter the water has been especially cold. The Drylock 3/2 is lined, taped seams, fits great and is the warmest suit I have owned between O'Neil, Rip Curl Aleeda and Body Glove. I like the contoured legs, sealed wrists/ankles and the lack of flashy graphics. I've been out about a dozen times and so far so good. We'll see about durability after the season because as the previous reviewer said, durability of the new rubbers is limited. If prices o quality gear continue to be found on DoG then I won't complain about getting a new wetty every year or two.
