I've found my one piece skin in hard to beat. I've had Hendersons and no-name Farmer Johns and all that, but the Xcel so far, is tops for me. I can get into and out of the thing without working up a sweat and it's plenty warm in the water. I don't feel too restricted in movements when it comes to reaching up and futzing with camera strobe arms either.

HOWEVER, it is not quite as durable as some of my others and this is not a good thing when it comes to rolling around sharp rocks at Ordinance Reef or Wash Rock looking for bugs & other goodies. The knee pads aren't as durable either but perhaps it's too much to ask of a suit to last 300 dives AND not get shredded every bug season.

Scuba Toys in Orange County carries them.
