I'm changing my WTB to... 5/4, 5/3, or 4/3 wetsuit. And adding booties and hood.

Another user pointed this out to me. Seems like a pretty good deal. I have the 4/3 Amp-K version (that I got from theclymb) and love it. There's also a 4/3 Amp surf version which seems similar for the same price.

I'm all set with the wetsuit now... bought one online.

Still looking for cheap booties (mens size 11) and hood or hooded polypro (L or XL).

Thanks John, that's the one I got in the 5/3 with front zip. Quick question... did you find that the Hyperflex runs one size small? That's what I heard so I got an XL instead of an L. If it's too big, I'll have to exchange it for an L.

No problem. Looking at the sizing, you should be okay with an XL. It doesn't look like they have the same suit in L though so you'll have to go for a back-zip (like I have) if it ends up being too large. Again, I think you should be fine - technically I went a size up and I was even lower (proportionally) than your height/weight is to the XL sizing if that made any sense. Good luck!
