"Great piece of equipment, excellent fit especially for odd bodies."timf79

(4)

Ease of installation

Getting the Bibjohn on is easier than a traditional wetsuit. Nevertheless using some wetsuit glide spray does help getting it up my long legs.

(5)

Ease of use

Put it on and go swimming, can't get any easier than this

(5)

Quality of Construction

When putting the suit on I pull and tug quite a bit, no seams have ripped.

(5)

Fit

At 6'6' I was worried the Bibjohn might be a bit tight at the shoulders, but it does fit perfectly fine. I contacted De Soto in order to help me determine the size.

(5)

Comfort

Swimming with the Bibjohn feels just as natural a without.

(5)

Durability

I used the Bibjohn a lot over the colder month to get a head start on my swim training. Though I can not attest about the long term (x year) use.

(4)

Value

A good wetsuit is to keep you warm, afloat and doesn't restrict movement. The Bibjohn does all of this at a great price.

(3)

Appearance

Optically the Bibjohn is very unspectacular, just as many other wetsuits. Some color would be nice.

(5)

Customer Service

I contacted De Soto for sizing support and good top-noth support.

(5)

Performance

With the Bibjohn I can get through a swim almost without kicking.

Strengths

Fit, no movement restrictions, flotation

Weakness

When wearing the Bibjohn and the pullover going to the bathroom is a chore, unless of course you don't mind leaving the wetsuit on.
