I was careful to order according to the size chart on the re-seller's website, which went by chest size, only. When it arrived, I was worried that it was too small, because I found it really hard to get the head hole over my head, and the "stickiness" of the inner coating was a little off-putting. Once it was on, it felt like it was choking me. I came to the Zone3 website, and confirmed it should be the right size for me, so, I put the head-hole over a cylinder for rolling out your tight muscles and left it there, overnight. I tried it on the next day, and felt it was much improved: I didn't feel like I was being choked, anymore. I tried it in 12C water on the weekend under my wetsuit, and it was perfect! I was worried I would not be able to get it off, especially if my fingers weren't working too well because they were cold, but it came off extremely easily. I wasn't expecting that! I'm definitely keeping, but women (or men with longer hair), the "sticky" inside really does catch and break your hair when you're putting it on over your head! I may try to put a swim cap on first, but I'm not sure how that would work.
I have other zone 3 products and they’re great. Mainly heat tech which I think is beet on the market. However, I really don’t like the feel of this. The inside (they say a titanium layer) is very tacky/ sticky so is weird to the skin. For me was very hard to get on and off because of this. Wore inside out mode it easier though.
Right sizing and very confortable with no strains or friction on the body including nech. Makes the open water swim under low or medium temperature much friendly maintaining the body at the right temperature. Easy to dress and undress. Should have been bought this some years ago!
I bought this to enhance the warmth of my 2.5/2mm wetsuit, and it does just the trick (swimming in water that is currently 12.5 degrees). It is quite a trick to get it on (and off, when you are wet!), but well worth it. I am 5'3'', 118lbs and ordered an XS. It is not tight around my neck or armpits (the wholes are large...the disadvantage of a unisex cut) - so I will not be wearing it without my wetsuit, but it fits great around the waist and doesn't roll up as I'm putting my wetsuit on.
