    All, does anyone have any experience with the Beuchat prestige suit; someone already asked this question re freediving suits. Considering this or Cressi World Competition (both 5mm) if anyone has any advice I'd really appreciate it - there's a price difference but what is the quality / durability? Also clarification if the Beuchat Elaskin is opencell? Many thanks

    I think Beuchat is better. I have Mundial Elaskin and its very good quality comapred to Cressi suits.
    Its probably open-cell, like most of them :)

    just taken my beuchat marlin prestige (7mm) for its first dive. was pretty toastie, seems well made with plenty of thick padding on the knees and shins so hopefully wont rip too easy on the rocks.
    only downside is the sizing, its quite short, im 6ft2 and 96kgs, orderd the xl which is meant for people my height (ish) and 90 kgs apparently, but i found it to be short and loose around the stomach and lower back and under the arms.
    probally better fitted for a shorter fatter person.
    from my first impressions of it though id recommend it.
