What we like:
The SG5 is packed with a huge amount of features that make this wetsuit warm and stretchy. What seperates this suit from other brands is the price. Now you can get your high end winter suit at a price that won’t break the bank.
What we don't like:
The wrist and ankle grippers are nice but are the first thing to break down over time. This isn't a deal breaker but it would be nice to see them glued to the suit a little better.
