What thickness were the pants that wore out? I am certain Elios will replace these for you.
I have been using my Heiwa 5mm open-cell, smoothskin since the end of September or so, diving 2-3 times a week usually. Doing lots of life searching at the bottom, along walls, etc... I have gone for swims of a couple kilometers a couple times, and I do not see any wear on my suit yet. I have scraped on barnacles, metal wiring, rocks, etc... and nothing shows yet. Maybe a small abrasion at one location.
So it sounds like there was a defect in your material or maybe you did not have the same materials?
But your circumstance sounds very isolated. I would not end your experiences with Elios over that.
