I've examined the new team competition titanium and it failed my quality test :( the inner titanium lining has some major quality problems and its neopreme is very rigid. However the master pro and the ocean mimetic are some quality productions.

I have Ocean mimetic 5mm and it is more like 4mm. The neoprene compressed after only 4 months use. It was excellent when new but I can only use it in the middle of summer now if not I get cold.

Looking at the Elios 7mm mimetic or Effesub 7/5mm Mimetic for this winter.

Supercomp still going strong so might save my money for a small RIB instead

Or water get to about 12-11 degrees in winter. A bit too cold for a 5mm IMHO

I heard very good reviews about supercompetition, and people say its the best for cold water... but you are the user. I think your opinion is the benchmark in deciding a wet suit.

What do you think about ocean mimetic though? I think its a quality production and I think its camo design is very good for clear and bluish water.

Omer's camo is great. Very good suit which lets little to no water in. Quite hard wearing as well.

You should use hot soapy water before put your Mimetic on otherwise it will tear off easily. In here i see some top speros using omer mimetic and they all likes it. Actually there is no other brand to compare with it but anyway... AS memo said the winter temp here is 16 degree min. I only tried the upper part of the suit and tied it with elastic weight belt it did not let the water in but i have some problems with hood. It slips off on my chin:(

I never put the hood on my chin. I let it fall onto my neck and it keeps the water out just as well. Seems you and I have strange shaped heads HEHEHEHE

I found ocean mimetic 5mm for 235 euro in here.... But its much cheaper in Italy.

By the if you are only using the upper part, way why dont you buy a bermuda with the same camo pattern? like this?
