i was just on the omer wbsite and saw this suit (the chino 45) and noticed that at the bottom of the description it say "*Runs one size small because of its' stretchyness" and then mentions size 3,4 and 5.
anyone know why this is? Is this a good suit? Wouldnt it be really difficult to make a 1 size fits all wetsuit?

Hi Vince, what that means is that if you're a size 5, then you order a size 4. If you're a 4, you order a 3. The Chino is made of Yamamoto 45, the same rubber that's in most of the Picasso suits. I own a regular rubber OMER, and it's well made, so I'm sure the Chino is a good suit. It is, like the Picassos, expensive though.
Cheers Vince,
