Long sleeves, short legs please. I never feel the cold in my legs that much, while I prefer long sleeves... and I hate having to strap down my legs to stop the water blasting up there :)

The front zip 4/3 steamer is such a good wetsuit I can't think of a reason to buy any other suit. Materials are bulletproof. Design is perfectly optimized for kiting. Graphics are killer. If I had a complaint, it's that the front zip suits are a bear to remove. I need someone to help pull the suit down off my shoulders. Otherwise I am like Houdini affecting the straitjacket escape. Possible, but tricky.
A shame the suits are no longer available. I guess I got one of the last ones, and should be good to go for the next three years or so. My recommendation is if they start suit production again, get one ASAP since the price and quality can not be beat.

Hi,
Switch has decided to focus on other avenues and put further strengths into other departments.
There will be no new wet suit line up in the foreseeable future.
Thank you for your understanding.

Understandable I guess (focus on what you do best), bummed though as I love the 4/3 just wish it was a little lighter and not as warm :D

Good, I prefer that Switch focuses on what they do best, which IMHO is great kites and boards that are as good or even better then the competition, but accesible to a broader set of users due to the lower prices.

Of course wetsuits, harnesses, wakebindings etc. can be of interest for a lot of users but then I rather see that Switch would do a collaboration with the associated brands they have through MJ (Mystic and Ronix) or Felix (Firewire, Flying Objects and Billabong). A good example of this is the North Banana boot (formerly the Frank boot) which IS the Ronix Frank boot, just in different color and branded with North instead.
