Hi team,
Wondering if people might share insight into their favourite brands of wetsuit for high end build quality? I don't mind spending a little extra for something good!

Also, is Yamamoto definitely the best neoprene? What about proprietary materials like Picasso's XS21 neoprene or Salvimar's SH-L foam?

Looking for as much info as possible!!

Best wetsuits are taylor made. Elios Sub, Polosub, Top Sub, Marea to name a few are top notch quality.

Yamamoto is not the best material. It depends on what deep you dive normally. Yamamoto compresses badly. I like Heiwa better, but for thickness of more than 5 mm can be a little "hard".

I have an epsealon and don’t like it. It’s like you have to get lucky to get a wetsuit that fits. As he mentioned I was looking at polosub for my next suit as they are custom to your measurements.
