When lookig at their website try changing your "text size" to the smallest it can go and see if it helps- it works for me.

I am pretty sure they can make the suit you want. My 5mm suit is reversible with green nylon on the inside and black smoothskin on the outside. I flip it around depending upon if I'm spearing, scuba diving, monofinning or freediving with my scooter. I remember them giving me many different color options for both inside and out.

Having some sort of nylon coating on one side of the suit will make it last MUCH longer than a simple smoothskin/opencell- as I have found out the hard way.:head

Did you get the superstretch nylon for the inside and how much easier was it to get on

did they send you pics of the different colors for inside and out or samples to your house?

I have their regular nylon on my reversible suit- they said that "super stretch" is too thin to use on a reversible suit. I know that Fred has superstreach on the inside of his 3mm, with a smoothskin outer, and I think his suit is 4 years old- but still looks new!

Super stretch is more flexible than nylon, but not as strong.

If I had it to do all over again, but I've got too many wet suits the way it is, I think I would go with just one 3mm suit with super stretch inside and smoothskin out. That would give it strength but still slip through the water. I would also get one 5mm suit with opencell in and nylon out- that would give it warmth, to go with the 5mm, and strength for spearing and other stuff.

For where I dive I think I could get away with just those two suits for year round diving.

Jon, I am considering ordering this very suit at Eliossub.
Is the suit flexible and warm (compared to other 5mm Elios alternatives)?

Cheers,
